Linda Ruth Tosetti, granddaughter of baseball legend Babe Ruth, will make a special appearance at the April 26 opening reception of D&R Greenway Land Trust’s newest exhibition, “Spring Training: People, Places, Play.”
The wide-ranging collection involves the urban, the rural and the wild as outdoors settings for play. Well known sports artist and D&R Greenway trustee James Fiorentino will unveil his newest portrait, “The Great Bambino,” evoking Ruth, legendary Yankee outfielder/pitcher and Hall of Famer.
Original digital prints of this work, signed by both Tosetti and Fiorentino, may be purchased, supporting D&R Greenway’s mission. Both guests will share personal perspectives on Babe Ruth, seven-time World Series champion.
Multi-media artwork, involving sailing, swimming, fishing, strolling, kayaking and beyond, is being exhibited by Hana Aviv, Lisa Budd, Kate Leigh Cutler, Mike Dziomba, Bernie Hubert, Sean Kane, Jack Quinn, Laura Renner and Ewa Zeller.
Keep an eye out for two vintage gloves from the 1920’s – one bearing the acrylic portrait of Babe Ruth; the other featuring Yogi Berra. This unique collection, honoring nature as play site, will be on view April 22 through June 14. Call to be sure galleries are not rented at time of visit.
