OVATION: Artists of the Studio Tour

On Display November 10-January 15
Opening Reception Thursday, November 10 from 5-8PM

This year, the Herb + Milly Iris Gallery extends the annual, local studio tour with an encore exhibition in OVATION: Artists of the Studio Tour. A community abundant in arts genres, there’s always a little slice of culture to experience. One such event is the South Orange Maplewood Artists Studio Tour, when, for one fabulous weekend, the local arts scene throws its doors wide open allowing visitors to access the behind-the-scenes look at artists’ private creative spaces. The Tour celebrates the many artists among us, and the exhibition allows us to revisit those artists and bring local art to all.


Luis Alves, Elisabeth Antoine, Carol Cassel Baker, Jennifer Crohn, Cat Delett, Jocelyn Fine, Matilda Forsberg, Sumana Ghosh-Witherspoon, Adam Gustavson, Rosemary Guttormsson, Denise Hardie, Samar Hussaini, Aida Jones, Lisa Lackey, Jenn Malone, Julia Maloof Verderosa, Jeremy Moss, Aimee Mower Lally, Liz Munro, Robert Nealon, Erin Rogers Pickering, Maria Savidis Markatos, Michele Tara Soncini, Alicia Starr, Iram Yeates and more…
