Opening Night, June 18th, 2011

And what a night to remember..... "Twenty Five Years of the Artful Deposit at Ellarslie," opened
last Saturday evening, June 18th, beginning with the preview party for Museum Society Members and the participants of the exhibit.

We enjoyed the beautiful gallery rooms on the first floor of Ellarslie, the Trenton City Museum. What a stunning venue for the feature exhibition! Many thanks to the Museum Society and to Ellarslie Director, Brian Hill for a lovely and gracious opening night.

Many of the artists from the Artful Deposit permanent stable were in attendance, and in the above picture from left to right are: Louis Russomanno, Eleinne Basa, Hanneke deNeve, Thomas Kelly (back), Cj Mugavero, Ken Maag, Marge Levine, Anna Wainright, Cynthia Dawley, and Michael Budden.

I'd also like to take a moment to thank the artists (the participants not in the picture also!) for their continued dedication to their talent and careers, and for helping me grow the Artful Deposit
gallery to what it has become today. Their talents are exceptional, and it is an honor to be a part of this journey.

"Twenty Five Years of the Artful Deposit at Ellarslie" will run until July 24th, and the gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday at 201 Farnsworth Avenue in Bordentown City, NJ.
Be Well and Be Artful!
