Art Strings Exhibit and Reception Planned

RAHWAY—The Rahway Arts District will host the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Art Strings fundraiser at a public reception tonight from 6 to 9 p.m.

Art Strings is a creative art project that raises funds for the NJSO’s extensive youth and educational outreach programs. The NJSO commissioned 10 local artists to create individual works of art using violins as their canvas, drawing inspiration from a musical program or work the NJSO is presenting in its 2009–10 season.


The violins will be displayed at select concerts and local galleries throughout the year, culminating in a raffle drawing on June 1. Among participating artists includes Raquel Bonassisa, Belleville, Vicki Reikes Fox, Monclair, Mikel Frank, Maplewood, Luis Gallinat, Newark, Beverly Goldschmidt, Westfield, Vivian Olshen, Livingston, Melissa Bronwen Pyle, Spring Lake, Marleny Romano, Ocean, Kerrie Wandlass, Cranford, and Gisele Zeitler, Scotch Plains.

The event will be held at the Rahway Arts District Galleries, 1573 Irving Street in Rahway.
