Bayshore Art Gallery’s Newest Show Features Local Artists Paying Homage to Farm Life

Work by Ted Zook

Starting August 12 at 5:30 p.m., The Bayshore Center at Bivalve will be hosting a reception at its Bayshore Gallery. The Center is located on the historic and scenic Maurice River in the Bivalve section of Port Norris. It is home to the schooner A.J. Meerwald. The gallery features a new exhibit each month for its monthly nightlife event, Second Fridays. South Jersey artists are featured and the public is cordially invited to attend the festivities along the historic wharves.

The show is titled “Make Hay While the Sun Shines” and will pay homage to various aspects of farm life. Wine, beer and snacks are available. Live music, a speaker and a craft activity for kids will round out the evening, and the Oyster Cracker Café will be open.

The exhibit will include eight artists who live and work in our area. Terri Amig, Kevin Quigley, Ted Zook, Mary Wolfe and Rita Michalenko will be exhibiting recent paintings. Photographs by Tina Giaimo and Don Merwin will be featured and “Summer Tomatoes” by potter Marie-Elaine Lanza will be on display. Most artwork is for sale and a portion of the purchase price goes to the Bayshore Center, which is a non-profit.

The Bayshore Center is located at 2800 High St. in Port Norris (Bivalve Section), N. J. For additional information, please call Chase at (856) 785-2060 ext. 102.
