Art on the Edge 2013 Reception

Despite the on and off rain all day, quite a crowd showed up for the opening reception for this year's edition of the annual Art on the Edge exhibition.  Just about every one of our new parking spots was filled up.

Before long the Boatworks was packed with people eager to see the over 70 works in this always unusual show.  Lots of the usual painting, drawing, photography, prints, and sculpture, plus Art on the Edge always brings a larger amount of mixed media and collage based work than most of our shows; we even have some scotch tape and ripped paper.  People moved around the building all day, but as usual the crowd formed in the back room where the tables, refreshments, and entertainment could be found.

The entertainment for the day was Dr Void and the Death Machines.  They had the house rocking up until the end of the evening.

The following pieces were chosen for prizes by this year's jurors, Jenn Hampton, Jill Ricci, and Sarah Potter from Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park:

Best in Show
Bill Ross
The Lizard King

First Prize
Richard Rappleyea

Second Prize
Christopher Fitzgerald

Third Prize

Fourth Prize
