Plein Air Winners to be Showcased at Rock Tavern UU

ROCK TAVERN – The Wallkill River School of Art will be showcasing winners from its 2021 Hudson Valley Plein Air Festival competition at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Rock Tavern in January and February. In October, fifty professional artists competed in a one-week outdoor landscape painting competition in the Hudson Valley. Fifteen were awarded prizes. The public is welcome to view, and purchase those works. A gallery opening and reception is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 5  from 2 to 4 p.m.  The previous opening , slated for Jan. 8, was cancelled because some of the artists could not attend. Additional showings are available by contacting Mike Landrum at 845- 851-6024. The gallery ends on Feb. 28. For a virtual tour of the exhibit and pricing, please click on this link: https://wallkillriverschool.com/product-category/uucrt-hvpaf-2022/ The mission of the Wallkill River School of Art “is to enrich our community through art classes, public art exhibits and to provide resources for local artists…” It serves the community by providing free Senior Drop-in classes, free classes to veterans, scholarships for local children to attend the Summer Art Program, charity fundraisers, badges for scout troops and meeting space for community and non-profit groups. Landrum, an actor and artist who leads the congregation’s arts mission, noted that the gallery will be adhering to the latest COVID 19 guidance and added that “now, more than ever, we need to celebrate, embrace and support our local artists. This is an opportunity to do just that.”
