Loving like a Soho Renegade

Photography by Paparazzi Paul

A night of enchantments indicative of the blessings of love touched the many souls who entered The Renegade Urban Winery in Stroudsburg, PA as The Soho in the Burg Gallery held an Artists' Reception within the winery for their Love, Love, Love Exhibition on Saturday February 11th. The work of Andrea Robbins-Rimberg (the gallery's curator), James Chesnick, Jill Swersie, Andrei Protsouk, Anna Kaszupski, Susan Washington, Jack Swersie, and several others adorned the walls of the establishment while its elegantly, rustic atmosphere enhanced the flavor of the art. Fine wines and beer enhanced the conversations of the large number of people who explored the work while a variety of foods reflecting the St. Valentine's holiday were lovingly consumed.

It was during the wonderful explorations of the art, food, and beverages did guitarist Zac Lawless step upon the Renegade Stage. His well rendered songs added a loving texture to evening as his thoughtful interpretations of the compositions he performed flowed among the gathering until their essence filled the pools of the heart. The spirit of love and delight inspired by the art, the music, and the winery was prevalent throughout the evening. It was a pleasure to be there and many ended their evening looking forward to The SOHO in the BURG Gallery's next exhibition. I hope to see you there. In the meantime, you'll find more photographs taken during Artists' Reception for their current exhibit in The Loving like a Soho Renegade Gallery at
