The Cercle d’Art de Bayonne opens its Spring Art Show on Friday with a reception at 7 p.m., at the Bayonne Community Museum, 229 Broadway, at 9 a.m.e Street.
Works by over 60 artists will be on display, including drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures, glass, jewelry and more.
The show will continue all weekend with hours on Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
Among the participating artists is Grigory Gurevich, a painter, sculptor, graphic designer, photographer and mime artist originally from Leningrad and having worked in the arts in Russia before moving to the United States.
He has exhibited work as part of the Jersey City Art and Studio Tour and has been active in the arts of Hudson County for many years. He played mime and taught art and mime to young people in Hudson County. Gurevich will exhibit his work in the painting, drawing and printing area of the exhibition.
Elsie Sienkiewicz, who has long been active in the arts in Bayonne, both painting and quilting, will also exhibit works. She will exhibit works in fabric and mixed media.
Glass artist Rich Roberts recently had an exhibition at the Hob’art Gallery in Hoboken in February. Roberts is a self-taught glass artist and has spent the last year and a half transitioning from copper foil and mosaic to kiln-formed glass creations. His work ranges from satire to realism.
