This week – some important information, a few parting shots of the fundraiser and a closer look at an RAA member and his paintings.
"Movies by Moonlight – Rockaway Movie Weekend". Start making your plans now for the evenings of Friday, August 27 and Saturday, August 28. RAA, through a donation from City Councilman Al Stabile, will present two movies, for free, under the stars at Fort Tilden’s parade grounds. Designed to be an event for the entire family, each night a different movie will be shown, along with some other good stuff. You may begin guessing what the two movies and the other good stuff are. Thanks to RAA filmmaker Kate Judge who acquired the funds and is arranging the evenings, Rockawayites can end the summer with a "Wild…Splash". (Hint, hint). You bring your beach chairs and popcorn, Kate will bring the "reel deal." Watch this column for further information.
Flooded Out by James McKay-oil
James McKay has been a valued member of RAA since its beginnings. He is an artist of enormous talent and individuality. One of RAA’s most dedicated instructors, he has taught landscape painting and photography in various parts of the city to both children and adults. Giving a thorough grounding in the basics to his students, he cares deeply about art and those to whom he teaches it. Remember young Arthur Lloyd from last week’s column? James served as an early mentor of his. McKay is Chairman of the Fulton Artists Consortium. His works are displayed in this country and abroad. He has exhibited in such venues as the Fulton Art Fair, the Rockaway Artists Alliance Gallery and the African Caribbean Latino Festival at Floyd Bennett Field.
