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.

"Flowers" Works by Pat Dunigan and Monica Loncola opens with a cocktail reception on Friday, July 8th@6p. Enjoy a lively evening at the Hotel chatting with the artists and looking at the beautiful paintings.
.
This work by Dunigan is representative of her loose and gestural style. The opposition of styles and presentation is why I juxtaposed these two artists.

Flowers bursting with bounteous blossoms of beauty are the subject of this exhibition featuring the paintings of Monica Loncola and Pat Dunigan. The two artists share a common subject painted in wildly different styles: Pat’s flowers are free-wheeling large and gestural while Monica are diminutive studies with controlled brushstrokes.

I color “outside the lines” in sweeping brush strokes. Recent paintings explore forms found in nature - flowers, fields of grasses, vines. I love the “architecture”, the shapes and colors, and work to bring them to life in unexpected ways. - Pat Dunigan
