RAA Presents "Passion Red"

The Rockaway Artists Alliance, Inc., in partnership with Gateway National Recreation Area (GNRA), presents the opening reception for "Passion Red" a member art exhibition on Saturday, February 9 from 1 to 3 p.m. in sTudio 6 Gallery, Fort Tilden. Admission is free.

"Passion Red" is an exhibition of love, embraces, kisses, valentines and the artist’s uninhibited affair with the color RED. All this is set against the stark, graceful beauty of Gateway National Recreation Area in winter: windswept beaches; cozy, fragrant trails through woods; bird-filled marshes. The exhibition runs from February 9 to March 10.

RAA is requesting that friends, family, neighbors, lovers and other strangers gather together for the opening reception on Saturday February 9 for an afternoon of Music, Art and Poetry to Warm the Winter’s Cold. Invited poets will read their original work. An open mike for poets will bring unexpected pleasures from unanticipated sources. Singer/songwriter Michael Finnergan, who has played at clubs around New York, will perform jazz, popular, and Irish tunes. He will also perform songs from his first musical, the charming and poignant "Moving with Grace," about the Irish immigrant experience. A wine and cheese reception follows.

Gallery hours are Saturday 12-5 p.m., Sunday 1-4 p.m., and by appointment. Self-guided tours of outdoor sculpture can be enjoyed daily from dawn to dusk. For information please call (718) 474-0861 or email: RockArt116@aol.com.
