THS juried art show opens with champagne preview


The 28th Juried Art Show and Sale, sponsored by the Tewksbury Historical Society, opens Friday, Oct. 11, with a Champagne Preview from 5 to 6 p.m., prior to the reception and show.

This new feature of the evening allows potential buyers to view the artwork early while enjoying a special drink and food. Those not interested in arriving early may attend the reception and show from 6 to 8 p.m., as in the past.

Activities will be held at the Zion Lutheran Church, Christian Education Building, 15 Miller St., Oldwick, N.J. Champagne Preview tickets are $75 with advance reservations only. Reception tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. All tickets permit returning to the show during the week as often as desired.

The festivities will include butlered hors d’oeuvres, food stations and a standing bar, where Signature Drinks created especially for the show will be served.

Awards based on the decisions of jurists Gerry Heydt, judge of selection, and Charlie Churchill, judge of awards, will be presented by show co-chairs Shaun Van Doren and Andy Calamaras.

Media represented in the show includes oils, acrylics, pastels, watercolors, mixed media collages, etchings, silk screens, lithographs and photography.

In addition to the juried artworks, buyers may also purchase small works and portfolio items. All of the art is submitted by the artists represented in the show. This is an opportunity to own the work of an artist whose work is “up and coming,” while supporting THS. The Society earns a small percentage of all items sold during the week.

The show continues through Saturday, Oct. 20. General Admission tickets are $3.

For purchase of preview and reception tickets and for show information, visit or call 908-832-6734.
