Recap: Roselle Park Loves Art!

We are so pleased to have participated this afternoon in Roselle Park’s RP Loves Art! street festival. Located on several lovely, tree-lined, residential blocks of Chestnut Street, the attractions were local art, music, theater & dance groups, alongside local food vendors. The weather, for a change, cooperated.

Our own WAA board members Mary Ann Iannitto (pastel portraits) and Ginny Puskar (acrylic painting) created original art live at the event, and drew lots of attention. We also set up exhibit walls in the street to display the locally-focused artwork of several more WAA members.

Over the afternoon we met many new friends, had fun arguing about art & artists, enjoyed real food, and had our pictures taken many, many times.
