Enjoy a 'Roadtrip Across America' Reception in Rahway

Arts Guild New Jersey hosts a reception today for the work of 11 peripatetic artists.

 presents 'Road Trip: My America', an exhibition exploring America through the creative viewpoints of eleven artists. The show, held at 1670 Irving Street in Rahway, opens with a free reception today, Sunday, Feb. 12, from 1 pm to 4 pm.

Participating artists include: Susan Marie Brundage from Pennsylvania; Walter Chandoha, Annandale; Don Edler, Brooklyn; William Graef, Manhattan; Neal Korn, Union; Marianne McCarthy, Brooklyn; Nancy Ori, Berkeley Heights; Hannah Rappleye, Brooklyn; Rocco Scary, NJ; Robin Stein, Seattle, WA; and Sue Zwick, Summit.

In the last century, traveling by back road and interstate has been one of the most popular ways of seeing destinations throughout the United States.

"In much the same way a true American road trip links together national landmarks, roadside attractions, and cultural hotspots over the course of many miles, [this exhibition] weaves together a number of uniquely American themes," said curator Rachael Faillace.

Touching on everything from roadside architecture to the concept of the American Dream, 'Road Trip: My America' examines the country from a variety of sometimes contradictory perspectives.

The show runs through March 15. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 1 pm to 4 pm, and during regular office hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, from 9 am to 4 pm. The exhibit is wheelchair accessible.
