beauty of a Summer's day was touched with thoughtful reflections as
The SOHO in the BURG Gallery
in Stroudsburg, PA held their Grand
Last Picture Show.”
The site that housed the gallery (known as the
Newberry Building) for
the past four years will soon offer wine and related items created by
Renegade Winery whose vineyards are located in East Stroudsburg, PA.
Although The SOHO in the BURG Gallery will no longer be a sole entity
at the location, it has been said that The Renegade Winery will
continue to display art and hold receptions in keeping with the
spirit of the departing gallery with it's curator, Andrea Robbins
Rimberg, remaining involved.
news that instilled the hope of art continuing to be presented at The
Renegade Winery tempered the sadness shared among the numerous art
lovers and aficionados Ms. Rimberg and the SOHO has accumulated
throughout the years. Ms. Rimberg's famous effervescent personality
and exuberant energies enhanced the art she displayed when the
gallery first opened in the April of 2012 and her loving countenance
continued to touch the essence of each person she met with this final
day being no exception. A great deal of love and appreciation was
exchanged throughout the afternoon between the gallery for all it
offered to enhance the creative community and to those who enhanced
the gallery through their talents and support.
Renegade Winery was present during the event and offered free
tastings of their finest bottles. The satisfying sensations brought
about by each sip of the delightful elixirs filled the room with
wonderful conversations whose utterances floated among the gathering
like a pleasant aromatic bouquet. The love and congeniality that was
poured into each glass by the owners, Britton and Amanda Detrick, and
their staff enhanced the already outstanding flavors of the beverage.
The anticipation of the drinks yet to be poured during their
residency at the location, whether it be on the premises during wine
tasting events or at home to compliment a fine dinner, filled the
gathering with an intoxicating joy.
afternoon proved to be an excellently paired celebration in which the
bidding a fond farewell to The SOHO in the Burg Gallery was coupled
with the new adventure for connoisseurs of wine and art to be
embarked upon at The Renegade Winery. It is rumored the theme of the
first art exhibition at the establishment will relate to grapes and
Those who heard the speculation were known to raise their glass to
toast in its reality. This writer raised his as well and will keep
you informed as more concrete information becomes available.
In the meantime, you'll find more photographs taken during the Last

goes without saying the meaningful and wonderful ways The SOHO in the
BURG Gallery and Andrea Robbins Rimberg has touched the lives of all
they encountered. Yet, it should be said. It's been said the gallery
is the Jewel in the Crown of the Pocono Arts District and the
sentiment is unanimously agreed upon among those who love the arts.
It's sad to see it go but there are promises of new adventures to be
embarked upon that may be more magnificent than those that had come
before. Improving upon the past seems like an impossible endeavor
but, through the well deserved faith many has placed in Ms. Rimberg
and the good will exhibited by The
Renegade Winery may be a dream come true.
