Glenwood Arts celebrated its gala opening recently with an evening of art, wine, film, food and live performances enjoyed by a huge turnout. A video highlight of the evening can be viewed at Glenwood Arts website: www.glenwood-arts.org.
Glenwood Arts director of fine arts and Glenwood resident Jason Paradis curated a showing of 12 artists of diverse styles in the newly-renovated Glenwood Arts gallery. The Aeros Quintet led by Glenwood resident Michelle Haim performed an exciting array of classical and contemporary music. New York City storyteller Regina Ress enchanted the crowd with a performance of her original “Village Vignettes.” The evening was capped off by a screening of the award-winning, entertaining short film, The Quality of Mercy, directed by Long Island’s own Stephen Marro, who was in attendance. Local singer-songwriter and artist Todd Borom, kicked-off musical festivities and also created the commemorative poster that will be on sale online.
