Because of the preservation work at the Museum we will not be able to hold the event in our building. Aylin Colieri, artist and Museum supporter, who owns the eARTh Gallery and CISArts in Rutherford, has graciously offered her space to use for this year’s Museum fundraiser.
EARTh Gallery is located at 333 Union Avenue, Rutherford, a store front just up from Union School in Rutherford. Her gallery houses an art school and exhibit space where she features the art work of many NYC artists. During our chocolate tasting event, the shaped metal wall reliefs of NYC artist Katinka Mann will be displayed. “For over 20 years, I have been cutting and shaping sheet metal, using it as the backbone for my previous work. Changing my set up in the studio to gain more space, I put the cut out metal in a different area. As I entered the studio the next day, the cut metal forms were bathed in sunlight, sparking a different look. ….. They have the appearance of an enameled metallic surface. The light emanates from the highly reflective surface……” Katrina Mann.
Although the gallery space is smaller than the Museum, it will still feature a large selection of chocolate as well as a chance to get to know Rutherford’s newest gallery space. Enjoy and get to know the work of Katinka Mann who be at the gallery for our event. We will also be treated to the music of jazz group “The John Hughes Trio”.
The funds raised for this event will be used to benefit the Meadowlands Museum programs. Adults: $20, Children$10. Pay at the door.
We hope you will join us.
