In October, the Gateway Playhouse in Somers Point, New Jersey further expanded their support of the arts to include featuring the work of a new local visual artist each month. The artwork can be viewed prior to the shows and during intermission and is available for purchase.

I had the opportunity to be the first  artist to show my artwork at the Gateway Playhouse. My connection paintings displayed through the month of October 2017. It’s really exciting to experience the overlap of artists supporting artists.

After hanging my show, I was able to attend the theater during the show, “She Loves Me.” It was absolutely fabulous! I think I have a new hobby.

Ah, you can’t help but feel the creative energy and love for the arts when you walk in the door. There is nothing like watching a live performance at the theater. Trust me. If you haven’t been yet, unplug and go! It’s wonderful.

If you’re not from the area, there are quite a few restaurants in walking distance and you can usually find dancing around the corner at Clancy’s on Saturday nights after the show.

Here’s the address.
