Big Sunday For Rockaway Artists Alliance
“RAA on Jamaica Bay,” the group’s first exhibition since the hurricane, opened with a reception at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Broad Channel.
Besides enjoying the artwork, guests were entertained by a short play Yarrow Regan, a literary reading by Carolyn Ruschefsky and music by Dan Guarino. Amanda Francin and Susan Hartenstein, along with Regan and Guarino, took impromptu parts in the play.
The exhibition will be on view at the Refuge’s Visitors Center through June 23rd. On the same day, the RAA’s Writers Group put on a performance event at the Sip This Café in Valley Stream.
They performed as part of a monthly showcase at the coffeehouse hosted by Sandra Proto.
Both events are part of RAA’s resurgence after the storm.
