About Our Exhibitions

Oyster Point Gallery Exhibitions, originally conceived by Vice President Kevin Barry, and currently curated by Ellen Martin, provide a prestigious and viable alternative gallery venue to artists from New Jersey and nearby locations. 

Both emerging and established artists, many of whom are award-winning, have been included in the exhibitions that are shown in the public spaces of the first two floors of the Hotel. 

The work is primarily two-dimensional and encompasses painting, photography, wall-mounted sculpture, collage, and collaborative work. The Gallery is an asset both to our community and guests of the Hotel.

Geanna Merola: Window Works – The Bowery

Jun 3, 2022 – Jul 5, 2022For 17 years I enjoyed having an apartment on Elizabeth Street, in Manhattan. I eventually found my way down to the lighting district, an area of the Bowery between Kenmare and Grand streets. There I recorded the dream-like imagery of hanging crystal lamps visible through the large glass panes. I continued to photograph on this stretch of the city for about the next ten years. The last images in this series were made in 2020…

Doing studio visits is one of the best parts of being a curator. You get to see the breadth of what an artist is doing and select exactly which works you want to exhibit. This was my second visit to Pat Dunigan's studio.
.
Stay tuned for more information on the "Flowers" opening.

"What Is and What May Be" by Joseph Borzotta is one of his "Mixed Emotions" series, a body of work completed over the last couple of years.
.
These pieces perfectly capture the precarious experience of living through the pandemic. There are emotional as well as technical elements to consider in this work.
.
In the background, you see a geometric painting. About half of it is overlaid with black loose painting ending in drips. There's a woman in the forefront, perhaps at a gallery, and it seems as though many thoughts are running through her head.
.
"Joseph Borzotta: Mixed Emotions” will open on Friday, June 3rd, 2022 at the Oyster Point Hotel. The reception will start at 6 and everyone is invited.

These two oil paintings by Andrea Geller are in our "UNSEEN" exhibit which runs through Memorial Day, with a closing reception on Friday, May 20 from 6 - 8 p.m.
.
Andrea Geller is a NJ based painter. After studying painting for two years at Cornell University, she earned her BFA from Parsons School of Design. Following a career as an illustrator and graphic designer, she earned her MFA from William Paterson University.
.
Andrea is a painter who easily shifts between figurative and landscape subjects as she paints the fleeting moment of the form in space. Color and the gestural mark are signature aspects of her work. Water in varying states has been a long time interest. The wide variety of the color blue is prevalent throughout her work.

SOLD! - "Dreamscape" by Leona Tenebruso-Shultes.

When I heard that Leona had tried a new technique in a painting and saw how excited she was about it, I knew I had to see the piece. Not only was I not disappointed, I asked her to exhibit the work in the UNSEEN show. And now it has sold and gone to a new owner who loves it. Congratulations to Leona Tenebruso-Shultes.
