Art on the Hill Returns to Stirling
Local and area artists will exhibit their latest works at Art on the Hill, at The Shrine of St. Joseph, located at 1050 Long Hill Road in Stirling. This unique evening of fine art and music, as well as food and drink, will take place on Saturday, November 15. The third biennial Art on the Hill event begins at 8 PM in the Shrine Auditorium.
The group art show will feature the works of 15 accomplished area artists, some of whom are quite well known in their media. In addition, each of the artists has donated an original piece of art for an art drawing which will take place that evening. (Attendees will drop tickets in vessels placed in front of each piece; a lucky winner will be drawn for each donated work of art.)
The participating visual artists, who represent the mediums of watercolor, acrylic, oil, photography, fiber art, pottery, and sculpture, include Hank Buntin (Berkeley Heights), Marie Burns (New Providence), Tom Butler (Berkeley Heights), Joanne Collins (Whitehouse Station), Diane Gallo (Summit), Liz Heine, Betty Ann Kelly (Cranford), Don Kuhn (Morristown), Betty McGeehan (Chatham), Masako Murphy (Berkeley Heights), Marie Ozmon (North Plainfield), Mim Pastino (Summit), Jody Pfeiffer (Westfield), and Frank Shyers (Stirling). Artists will each exhibit several pieces of their work, most of which will be for sale…and art makes wonderful holiday gifts!
Musicians who will entertain throughout the event include Cathy Bush (Basking Ridge), Dan Gates (Warren), and “friends.” In addition to the arts, the evening includes wine and hors d’oeuvres, desserts and coffee.
Tickets to this fundraising event are $25 a person; five art drawing tickets are included in the ticket price. Additional art drawing tickets will be available for purchase during the evening. Tickets will be available at the door the night of Art on the Hill. There is ample free parking in the Shrine parking lot.
