The Days of Wine and Soho Returns

Photography by Paparazzi Paul.

A joyous cry rang throughout the artistic community of Stroudsburg, PA as news of the reopening of The Soho in the Burg Gallery was first shared. This enraptured response to the news culminated with an Artists' Reception for their exhibition titled, “A Pairing” which took place on Saturday December 10th within the Renegade Winery where the gallery is now housed. The whole building (known as the J. J. Newberry Building) was previously rented by The Soho in the Burg Gallery but it changed hands during the July of 2016. Please feel free to read our Article about their farewell exhibit titled, “So Long Soho” at www.facebook.com/notes/the-forwardian-arts-society/so-long-soho/10155097171358761.

With an enhanced d├ęcor conducive to the tasting and consumption of a variety of delicious wines offered by the Renegade Winery, the sampling and purchasing area of the establishment flowed gently into the gallery. The space where the gallery inhabited provided enough room for the large number of art lovers who came to the event to move around so they could explore the beautiful works created by Andrea Robbins-Rimberg (the gallery's curator), James Chesnick, Jill Swersie, Andrei Protsouk, Anna Kaszupski, Susan Washington, and Jack Swersie while being small enough to inspire some intimate and meaningful conversations. A variety of foods were provided by the artists which added to the flavor of the wine and the atmosphere of the afternoon.

The reception proved to be a wonderful time as it touched upon the blessings often associated with the Winter Holiday Season. It was a joy to be among one of the attendees and the news that was shared in regards to future exhibitions at the gallery was welcomed with a loving embrace by all who received it. The SOHO in the BURG Gallery will present their exhibition titled, “A Pairing” until January 30th. Their next exhibition is scheduled to open Saturday February 11th and it's theme will be in keeping with the St. Valentine's Holiday.
