Salon 561: Annual Faculty Show 

DEMAREST, NJ -- Kick off the Fall with the Art School at Old Church! Salon 561 is open to the public and is an annual show that showcases the wide breadth of knowledge, mediums, and talent of the faculty at the Art School at Old Church. New to the school? This is a great opportunity to meet the instructors, who are among many local professional artists devoting their creativity to inspiring students of all ages to experiment, indulge in new experiences, and to grow. While faculty continue to show their artwork in the galleries at the school, this will be the 8th Annual Salon 561 exhibition, and it is a chance to view the artworks in conversation with each other.  There will be artwork for sale in various mediums in ceramics, jewelry, photography, printmaking and more displayed in the Mikhail Zakin Gallery.  

A few of the eclectic pieces are elegant vases by Susan Bogen and Eric Lawrence, a teapot in the shape of a horse by Alison Palmer, Chinese brush paintings by Jane Chang, a dollhouse by Holly Ciccoricco, and striking photographs by Ray Turkin. The Art School at Old Church continues this inclusive tradition by inviting community members, students, faculty and curious individuals to join the conversation, meet the artists, and feel inspired! There will be a public reception on September 28, 2016 at 5:30 PM, and the exhibition is wheelchair accessible and is now open through October 28.
