A Successful ArtsFest

Joyful Time at ArtsFest

My son and I went to downtown New Rochelle and both of us were pleasantly surprised at how it seems to be growing. We spent most of our time at the BID Artist Gallery Spaces. There were a dozen different collections there in rooms that were their own gallery on two different floors of a building on Division Street. The College of New Rochelle art department had a large exhibit on the third floor. While there we were delighted to hear a violin begin to play. The musician, Emma Carleton, presented a dramatic figure, played wonderfully and even took requests.

There were a few curators from around the area such as Lisa Cooper of Elisa Contemporary Art in Riverdale. Two artists from Rye were there and had a flyer on an upcoming event that readers need to know about, the Oyster Arts & Music Festival to be held at Rye Playland October 6 & 7. 

Kudos to the New Rochelle Council on the Arts. Perhaps we can have more similar events to bring people to our downtown.
