AAG Group Show: New Beginnings Opening!

"Every day is a fresh beginning, Every morn is the world made new"

Begin again. Take a deep breath and set your eyes to the horizon. Anything is possible.
The Allentown Art Guild, in collaboration with the Laurita Winery, invites you to attend New Beginnings, an exhibition featuring works by the multi-talented members of the Allentown Art Guild. The exhibiting artists reflect a wide range of styles: non-representational abstract, impressionism, realism, and expressionism, and a wide variety of subject matter with New Beginnings being the common theme.

The public is invited to the opening reception on Sunday, May 23, 2010, from 2-5 pm at the Laurita Winery, 35 Archertown Road in New Egypt, New Jersey. There is no charge for admission for this event and RSVP is not necessary. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. The art work will be on display from May 23rd thru September 19th, 2010.

The Allentown Art Guild is comprised of 25 plus members – full-time and part-time artists from the Allentown, Cream Ridge, Perrineville, Roosevelt and East Windsor areas. Since the Guild was formed as a non-profit organization just over three years ago, it has made tremendous strides in appreciation of the arts in the community.

The Guild holds monthly meetings that include workshops, demonstrations and lectures by distinguished artists from New Jersey. The public is invited to attend many of these events since it is the Guild’s goal to encourage art appreciation in our community as well as to encourage artistic growth among its members.

Information about the exhibit, monthly Guild activities or information on how to become a member can be found on the Guild web site at:

Nestled in a natural setting that invites visitors to return again and again, not only for its wine, but for its natural and architectural beauty, the Laurita Winery is a unique destination featuring beautiful vineyards, trails to explore, spacious patios and private wine tasting rooms. Co-owners Randy Johnson and Ray Shea designed Laurita to be guest friendly as well as environmentally friendly, to the greatest extent possible.
“I estimate that about 60 percent of Laurita Winery is made from recycled or salvaged material”, says co-owner Randy Johnson. The uniqueness of Laurita Winery can only be compared to the wines the venue produces. Old world vision meets state of the art architecture and agriculture at Laurita Winery.

The hours for visiting Laurita Winery, 35 Archertown Road, New Egypt, NJ, are Monday, Thursday & Friday, Noon to Sunset. Saturday & Sunday, 11:30 am to Sunset. The winery is closed Tuesday & Wednesday.
