Featuring the talents of nearly two dozen member artists, “Gifted” spotlights artworks in oil paint, photography, stained glass, watercolor, sculpture, mixed media, poetry and more. Gallerygoers at the well-attended opening shared colorful refreshments, mingled and met with some of the artists. Many were even moved to dance as singer Gary Russo, along with daughter Cara, took the stage to perform both popular songs and standards.

“Gifted” will be on view every weekend through Sunday, December 12. Among the special events, the gallery will host a performance by the Rockaway Artists Alliance Writers Group on Sunday, November 21, 4-6 p.m. in sTudio 7.
