Sugar Loaf - For the month of June, the Orange County Arts Council, a county-wide not-for-profit arts service organization, will be hosting an Orange County Artists exhibit at the Seligmann Studio Gallery on 23 White Oak Drive in Sugar Loaf through June 25th. This exhibit is part of a county-wide month-long celebration of Orange County, being coordinated by Orange County Department of Tourism. The opening reception for this exhibit was held on Friday, June 1st.
“This exhibit represents the color, landscapes, history and diversity of Orange County. It is a unique opportunity to experience the beauty of Orange County through an artist’s eyes and to be reminded of why we choose to call it home. Attendees will experience a diverse sampling of the talent and creativity that is present in Orange County, as well as a new and fresh perspective on many familiar places and spaces,” says Dawn Ansbro, Executive Director of the Orange County Arts Council.
There are thirty Orange County visual artists and nine literary artists participating in this exhibit. Visual artists are Eileen MacAvery Kane, Susanne Auer, Ann Marie Nitti, Mark Vrzala, Diane Ouzoonian, Mona Birmingham, Sheldon Cotler, Rosalyn Fassett, Tom Hedderich, Janet Howard Fatta, Lorrie Sniderman, Barbara Rubin, Nick Zungoli, Richard Ferrer, Ivan Sanford, Linda Gita Rahl, Jamie MacLeod, Susan Miiller, Sharon Falk, Joan Kehlenbeck, Diane Bollen, Robert Lafayette, Jean Merritt, Debbe Femiak, Jacinthe Battaglino, Mitchell Saler, Dave Nolan, Kate Ferriter, Leslie Waxtel and Pat Foxx. Literary artists include Donna Spector, Joan Siegel, Barbara Adams, Rosemarie Werkman, Kate Ferriter, Michael Sciarretta, Joel Solonche, Len Berger and Howard Horowitz.
The Orange County Celebration Exhibit is not a juried show. The invitation to participate was open to any visual or literary artist living in Orange County and the only requirement was that the work be reflective of some aspect of Orange County life.
This Orange County month celebration represents the evolution of the Orange County Day event which was typically held every June. The show will be available for viewing Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. through June 25th.
