RAA Presents Artsplash 2006
The Rockaway Artists Alliance has gathered over 30 artists and performers for Artsplash 2006, held between September 9 and October 15, with an opening reception on Sunday, September 10 from 1-3 p.m. at the Rockaway Center for the Arts (RoCA) in Ft. Tilden.
Spread throughout the RAA's sTudio 6 and sTudio 7, this new exhibition features art expressed through sculpture, photography, paste, painting, watercolor, drawing, assemblage, mixed media and even DVD video and spoken word CDs. Performing arts will also be interwoven into the vibrant show on the adjoining outdoor Moon Stage, with singers, musicians and spoken word artists; culminating with the Mariana Bekerman Dance Company's "Taro," a complete dance performance with original music and seven performers.
Artsplash 2006 was juried and selected from an exceptionally large number of submissions. Prizes for best in show will be awarded by curator Pedro Pacheco. Exhibiting Artsplash artists include Romona Wilder, Heidi Wertz, Janice Weiss, Alice Waite, Siegfried Stiene, Lois Stiene, Jessica Schulman, Renee Radenberg, Kenny Franklin, Martha Killian, Dan Guarino, and many more.
Gallery hours are Saturdays, 12-4 p.m. and Sundays, 1-4 p.m. and by appointment. For more information call the RAA at (718) 474-0861, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.rockawayartistsalliance.org.
