St Catherine of Bologna Art Exhibit 2011

Ringwood Award - best piece of art depicting Ringwood

This weekend is the 12 annual St. Catherine of Bologna Art Exhibit. This year marks the 3rd year I have attended and 2nd year I have participated in this wonderful show. My infrared b&w image of the cottage near the entrance to Skylands won the Ringwood Award this year. My compliments to Digital Silver Imaging for making a great print of my image (you guys always make me look good). I stopped by the show last night on my way home last night and was amazed at how this church hall is transformed into a gallery with such wonderful art. This years show has over 750 entries in it. Thank You! to everyone who works so hard to make this show possible each year and gives the local artists a place to show their work and see the work of others in the area.

The show runs all weekend. If you are in the Northern NJ area check it out. I will be going back today with my family and friends to spend some time looking at the other great photos and the wonderful paintings and sculpture. It will be a real treat to spend some time together.

Congratulations to my friend Mike Malandra whose landscape of an autumn stream in Harriman State Park took first place in the landscape category His photo is right by the entrance when you come into the hall you can't miss it. Nice work Mike!

Keep Makin' Art!
