Friends of Historic Huletts Landing hosting art exhibit

F or the third year, Friends of Historic Huletts Landing will be holding its annual art exhibit, which gets underway on Saturday, June 28, with the opening reception at 5 p.m.
The exhibit will take place on the corner of county Routes 6 and 6A in Huletts Landing and will feature the mother and son combination of Myla Jellffe, who does watercolors and Jon Punch, who works with pen and ink.
“This is a great opportunity for people to meet the artists.” Curator Tom Keating said, “Each opening includes a cheese and wine reception, it is really nice.”
Keating added that although this is only the third year that this has been an official art exhibit, that the Friends of Historic Huletts Landing had put on one or two non-official art galleries prior.
“We did one or two informally and then we decided that we should have a curator,” Keating added, “I decided to be curator and now we do three art openings per year.”
In addition to the June 28 opening, there will also be a July 19 opening with photographer Carrie Burr and then on Aug. 23, there will be an art auction.
The art auction will feature any local artists who wish to submit their artwork for the silent auction, from which they will take home 60 percent of the proceeds, with the other 40 going to the historic society.
All three openings will include a cheese and wine reception; in addition to the three openings, the art exhibit will also be open from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
All artwork featured in the exhibit comes from Huletts Landing locals.
“Hopefully we can get some people over the mountain to come see some great, local artwork in Huletts Landing” added Keating.
