The new exhibit of works by contemporary artists inspired by John A. Noble opened last night at the Noble Museum in Snug Harbor. Eight artists are presenting works big and small that “respond” to John A. Noble’s magnificent body of work, drawings, paintings, etchings, etc. that are on glorious display in the museum. There are oil paintings, including some beautiful miniatures done on old metro cards by Patrizia Vignola, and a scale model of a salt dock by Dan and Mariel Law Adams. There are other impressive works by Bill Higgins, Frank Hanavan, Patricia Melvin, Dan Thompson and Christopher Clarke. Get an idea of the exhibit at the Noble Museum’s Facebook page and get more info about the museum on their website. The exhibit is a great reason to get out to Snug Harbor to visit the museum and reacquaint yourself with the maritime art, artifacts and history on view there.
