‘Meet the Artist’ at Café Arts in Urbanna

Event organizers Hank Roden and Lawrence Fuccella prepare for this weekend’s Café Arts in Urbanna.

Well-known artists Wanda Hollberg, Jacquie Colligan, Hank Roden, Ginny Sawkins, LaJean Browning-Smith, Peter Keen, Kelsey Robusto, Anna Pomaska, Candie Newman and others will exhibit at Café Arts in Urbanna this Friday and Saturday, April 3-4, in the historic Taylor Hardware building at 51 Cross Street. 

All of the artists are inspired and accomplished in their individual field of self-expression through the fine arts, and enable viewers to find an element of their own inner being in art. “Does that make sense?” asked an event spokesperson. “If not, then come to Café Arts. An understanding will be gained!”

The public is invited to experience a few hours viewing great art and speaking with the artists while listening to live music. Enjoy homemade hors d’oeuvres with wine or coffee, and it’s all on the house.  “You just might hear your intuitive calling of the soul to start creating yourself,” said the spokesperson.

The exhibiting artists include painters, jewelers, potters, photographers, pen and ink drawing artists, watercolor artists, a children’s storybook illustrator, and more. 

“Some of the artists are well known in Middlesex, others are new, and all bring a vibrant energy to this exhibit,” said the spokesperson.

This art experience has been organized and will be presented in Urbanna by Lawrence Fuccella and Hank Roden. “Their continued interest in improving the quality of living in Middlesex can be greatly appreciated by all,” said the spokesperson.

The old Taylor Hardware building has been renovated into a multi-functional address with several offices and shops, which include a café, beauty salon, Realtor, massage therapist, artist studio, photographer and architect. The building is wheelchair accessible by a ramp in the back.

On Friday, April 3, the exhibit will be open from 3 to 9 p.m., and on Saturday, April 4, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“See and meet the faces behind the names. And please feel free to twitter and text message all your friends and invite them to come and appreciate the pleasures of Café Arts,” said the spokesperson.
