Middletown Art Group 2016 Members' Spring Exhibition A celebration of continuance and the arts is being planned for the reception of the Middletown Art Group 2016 Members’ Spring Exhibition. Mark your calendars for this 1 to 4 p.m. bash on Sunday, May 15 in Orange Hall Gallery at SUNY Orange.

Get ready to sing Happy Birthday, blow out the candles, and have a piece of cake to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the organization.

In keeping with the lively afternoon, pianist Bev Poyerd will play selections of jazz, show, and classical music on the baby grand. During the reception, mini-demonstrations will be given by members Bob Scully painting with oils, Catherine DeMaio making collages, and Starr Novak working with a combination in mixed media. They will explain as they create and also, will welcome questions.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. The timeframe of the show extends May 5 through June 8. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday - 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday - 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. through May. In June, the College is closed on Fridays.

The organization was established in 1946 “for the purpose of exchanging ideas between artists, craftsmen, art teachers, and students and of providing an atmosphere in which to improve individual skills and respect for the efforts of others.” MAG continues that tradition and sponsors demonstrations, lectures, and exhibitions which promote the study of the arts.

Showcasing well over 100 works in oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, encaustics, charcoal, pencils, photography, collage, mixed media, recycled objects, and sculpture, the exhibit will offer a view of the wide variety of diverse styles and techniques of the more than 50 members whose works will be displayed.  In addition, a special section will feature the works of past members presented in memoriam.

Even though the name “Middletown Art Group” seems to give the impression of exclusiveness to Middletown residents, that is not the case as members reside in other parts of Orange County as well as Sullivan, Ulster, Dutchess, Sussex, and Pike Counties.

This year’s show judge is Gene Bové, who is known for his oil painting en plein air. A founder of the Wallkill River School and Gallery, Bové is a signature member of the New York Plein Air Painters and the Pine Bush Area Arts Council. In 2014, he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Arts Award from the Orange County Arts Council. Prizes will be awarded during the reception.

Show co-chairs are Anne W. Kelly and Renee Buckheit along with Barbara Bonham coordinating and designing the catalog.
