Farming the Art of James Chesnick

The Soho In The 'Burg Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artists' Reception on Saturday February 6th which featured the work of James Chesnick as well as the talents of other local artists presented in their Winter's Farmer's Market group exhibition. A full array of colors and images flowed throughout the venue inspiring the many who attended the event to allow their imaginations to wander among the soulful renderings upon its walls. An uncommon beauty touched the hearts of those who pondered upon each piece which ranged from depictions of profound significations in the awareness in humankind to the spellbinding abstractions found in many of the works especially those created by the featured artist.

The evening was filled with a variety of conversations as the many artists and art lovers shared their joy of being together in a gallery whose welcoming atmosphere is reflected by the effervescent personality and exuberant energies of its owner, Andrea Robbins Rimberg. The excellence of the work magnified the experience of being present while creating an anticipation for the next exhibit and all that will follow throughout 2016.
