Megan Gray’s landscapes are heavily influenced by her time spent in nature which inspires, calms, and fills her with gratitude. She takes those feelings back to the studio where she translates them into the paintings you see in the windows of the Art Alliance during the month of February.   Gray sees her landscape paintings as a way to connect with the world around us and also to connect with ourselves, to calm our minds, but also to challenge ourselves.  Gray states that “I only hope that my paintings act as reminders to be present, and to connect with the beauty in the world around us.”   In the main Gallery Gray will jury work on the themes Circles, Spheres, and other Round Things and Field of Dreams.  These works will be on display February 1, 2020 through March 3, 2020 at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701.

Michael Short will be showing work constructed from driftwood and aged wood in the windows of the Art Alliance for the month of September. Short’s work uses the medium of driftwood and found wood to focus on repetitive patterns and the juxtaposition of opposites.  He enjoys the medium in-and-of-itself and the history that the individual pieces of wood convey.  He uses this unusual medium to play with contradictions: pretty and tattered, new and old, random and specific, grown and constructed.    The main gallery of the Art Alliance will exhibit work by members on the theme In the Beginning.   An Artists’ Reception will not be held due to Covid social Distancing recommendations.    The exhibition is on view September 12 – 29, Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 PM.  Free of charge at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ.    For more information, visit the website at www.artallianceofmonmouth.org, or visit or call the gallery during operating hours, (732) 842-9403.

Urbanski advises corporations and private clients on the acquisition and maintenance of contemporary fine art collections in public and private spaces. She has acquired artwork for Fortune 500 companies including Pfizer, Inc. where she advised on the acquisition of all the art for several international divisions. She has worked with architects such as HLW and The Rockwell Group, where she acquired artwork for a 500 room casino hotel. A significant ongoing project is the creation of a contemporary art collection for noted philanthropists Marilyn and Jim Simon’s private charitable foundation — the Simons Foundation in NYC.  Additionally, Urbanski served as the art curator of the Port Authority of NY & NJ which has an extensive corporate and public art collection. In this capacity she oversaw all aspects of collections management and helped research and present artists' proposals for large scale site specific public commissions through their 1% for art program.  She created a program for rotating artwork in the Port Authority’s public spaces such as Laguardia and Kennedy Airports. Urbanski gave a TEDx talk on selfies entitled Selfies: A Visual Analysis which compared these instant self portraits to art historical precedents. She was the curator of the TEDx Navesink “Art at Play” exhibition, which was installed at the Two River Theater, Red Bank, NJ in the Spring of 2014.

Urbanski advises corporations and private clients on the acquisition and maintenance of contemporary fine art collections in public and private spaces. She has acquired artwork for Fortune 500 companies including Pfizer, Inc. where she advised on the acquisition of all the art for several international divisions. She has worked with architects such as HLW and The Rockwell Group, where she acquired artwork for a 500 room casino hotel. A significant ongoing project is the creation of a contemporary art collection for noted philanthropists Marilyn and Jim Simon’s private charitable foundation — the Simons Foundation in NYC.  Additionally, Urbanski served as the art curator of the Port Authority of NY & NJ which has an extensive corporate and public art collection. In this capacity she oversaw all aspects of collections management and helped research and present artists' proposals for large scale site specific public commissions through their 1% for art program.  She created a program for rotating artwork in the Port Authority’s public spaces such as Laguardia and Kennedy Airports. Urbanski gave a TEDx talk on selfies entitled Selfies: A Visual Analysis which compared these instant self portraits to art historical precedents. She was the curator of the TEDx Navesink “Art at Play” exhibition, which was installed at the Two River Theater, Red Bank, NJ in the Spring of 2014.

Urbanski gave a TEDx talk on selfies entitled Selfies: A Visual Analysis which compared these instant self portraits to art historical precedents.

Michael Short will be showing work constructed from driftwood and aged wood in the windows of the Art Alliance for the month of September. Short’s work uses the medium of driftwood and found wood to focus on repetitive patterns and the juxtaposition of opposites.  He enjoys the medium in-and-of-itself and the history that the individual pieces of wood convey.  He uses this unusual medium to play with contradictions: pretty and tattered, new and old, random and specific, grown and constructed.    The main gallery of the Art Alliance will exhibit work by members on the theme In the Beginning.   An Artists’ Reception will not be held due to Covid social Distancing recommendations.    The exhibition is on view September 12 – 29, Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 PM.  Free of charge at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ.    For more information, visit the website at www.artallianceofmonmouth.org, or visit or call the gallery during operating hours, (732) 842-9403.

Urbanski advises corporations and private clients on the acquisition and maintenance of contemporary fine art collections in public and private spaces. She has acquired artwork for Fortune 500 companies including Pfizer, Inc. where she advised on the acquisition of all the art for several international divisions. She has worked with architects such as HLW and The Rockwell Group, where she acquired artwork for a 500 room casino hotel. A significant ongoing project is the creation of a contemporary art collection for noted philanthropists Marilyn and Jim Simon’s private charitable foundation — the Simons Foundation in NYC.  Additionally, Urbanski served as the art curator of the Port Authority of NY & NJ which has an extensive corporate and public art collection. In this capacity she oversaw all aspects of collections management and helped research and present artists' proposals for large scale site specific public commissions through their 1% for art program.  She created a program for rotating artwork in the Port Authority’s public spaces such as Laguardia and Kennedy Airports. Urbanski gave a TEDx talk on selfies entitled Selfies: A Visual Analysis which compared these instant self portraits to art historical precedents. She was the curator of the TEDx Navesink “Art at Play” exhibition, which was installed at the Two River Theater, Red Bank, NJ in the Spring of 2014.

Michael Short will be showing work constructed from driftwood and aged wood in the windows of the Art Alliance for the month of September. Short’s work uses the medium of driftwood and found wood to focus on repetitive patterns and the juxtaposition of opposites.  He enjoys the medium in-and-of-itself and the history that the individual pieces of wood convey.  He uses this unusual medium to play with contradictions: pretty and tattered, new and old, random and specific, grown and constructed.    The main gallery of the Art Alliance will exhibit work by members on the theme In the Beginning.   An Artists’ Reception will not be held due to Covid social Distancing recommendations.    The exhibition is on view September 12 – 29, Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 PM.  Free of charge at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ.    For more information, visit the website at www.artallianceofmonmouth.org, or visit or call the gallery during operating hours, (732) 842-9403.

Michael Short will be showing work constructed from driftwood and aged wood in the windows of the Art Alliance for the month of September. Short’s work uses the medium of driftwood and found wood to focus on repetitive patterns and the juxtaposition of opposites.  He enjoys the medium in-and-of-itself and the history that the individual pieces of wood convey.  He uses this unusual medium to play with contradictions: pretty and tattered, new and old, random and specific, grown and constructed.    The main gallery of the Art Alliance will exhibit work by members on the theme In the Beginning.   An Artists’ Reception will not be held due to Covid social Distancing recommendations.    The exhibition is on view September 12 – 29, Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 PM.  Free of charge at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ.    For more information, visit the website at www.artallianceofmonmouth.org, or visit or call the gallery during operating hours, (732) 842-9403.

On Sunday, March 22th, at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, Elizabeth Urbanski will share wisdom gained from more than 20 years as an independent art and design consultant. Urbanski advises corporations and private clients on the acquisition and maintenance of contemporary fine art collections in public and private spaces. She has acquired artwork for Fortune 500 companies including Pfizer, Inc. where she advised on the acquisition of all the art for several international divisions. She has worked with architects such as HLW and The Rockwell Group, where she acquired artwork for a 500 room casino hotel. A significant ongoing project is the creation of a contemporary art collection for noted philanthropists Marilyn and Jim Simon’s private charitable foundation — the Simons Foundation in NYC.  Additionally, Urbanski served as the art curator of the Port Authority of NY & NJ which has an extensive corporate and public art collection. In this capacity she oversaw all aspects of collections management and helped research and present artists' proposals for large scale site specific public commissions through their 1% for art program.  She created a program for rotating artwork in the Port Authority’s public spaces such as Laguardia and Kennedy Airports. Urbanski gave a TEDx talk on selfies entitled Selfies: A Visual Analysis which compared these instant self portraits to art historical precedents. She was the curator of the TEDx Navesink “Art at Play” exhibition, which was installed at the Two River Theater, Red Bank, NJ in the Spring of 2014.

Michael Short will be showing work constructed from driftwood and aged wood in the windows of the Art Alliance for the month of September. Short’s work uses the medium of driftwood and found wood to focus on repetitive patterns and the juxtaposition of opposites.  He enjoys the medium in-and-of-itself and the history that the individual pieces of wood convey.  He uses this unusual medium to play with contradictions: pretty and tattered, new and old, random and specific, grown and constructed.    The main gallery of the Art Alliance will exhibit work by members on the theme In the Beginning.   An Artists’ Reception will not be held due to Covid social Distancing recommendations.    The exhibition is on view September 12 – 29, Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 PM.  Free of charge at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ.    For more information, visit the website at www.artallianceofmonmouth.org, or visit or call the gallery during operating hours, (732) 842-9403.

Megan Gray’s landscapes are heavily influenced by her time spent in nature which inspires, calms, and fills her with gratitude. She takes those feelings back to the studio where she translates them into the paintings you see in the windows of the Art Alliance during the month of February.   Gray sees her landscape paintings as a way to connect with the world around us and also to connect with ourselves, to calm our minds, but also to challenge ourselves.  Gray states that “I only hope that my paintings act as reminders to be present, and to connect with the beauty in the world around us.”   In the main Gallery Gray will jury work on the themes Circles, Spheres, and other Round Things and Field of Dreams.  These works will be on display February 1, 2020 through March 3, 2020 at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ 07701.

Michael Short will be showing work constructed from driftwood and aged wood in the windows of the Art Alliance for the month of September. Short’s work uses the medium of driftwood and found wood to focus on repetitive patterns and the juxtaposition of opposites.  He enjoys the medium in-and-of-itself and the history that the individual pieces of wood convey.  He uses this unusual medium to play with contradictions: pretty and tattered, new and old, random and specific, grown and constructed.    The main gallery of the Art Alliance will exhibit work by members on the theme In the Beginning.   An Artists’ Reception will not be held due to Covid social Distancing recommendations.    The exhibition is on view September 12 – 29, Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 PM.  Free of charge at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, 33 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ.    For more information, visit the website at www.artallianceofmonmouth.org, or visit or call the gallery during operating hours, (732) 842-9403.

On Sunday, March 22th, at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County, Elizabeth Urbanski will share wisdom gained from more than 20 years as an independent art and design consultant. Urbanski advises corporations and private clients on the acquisition and maintenance of contemporary fine art collections in public and private spaces. She has acquired artwork for Fortune 500 companies including Pfizer, Inc. where she advised on the acquisition of all the art for several international divisions. She has worked with architects such as HLW and The Rockwell Group, where she acquired artwork for a 500 room casino hotel. A significant ongoing project is the creation of a contemporary art collection for noted philanthropists Marilyn and Jim Simon’s private charitable foundation — the Simons Foundation in NYC.  Additionally, Urbanski served as the art curator of the Port Authority of NY & NJ which has an extensive corporate and public art collection. In this capacity she oversaw all aspects of collections management and helped research and present artists' proposals for large scale site specific public commissions through their 1% for art program.  She created a program for rotating artwork in the Port Authority’s public spaces such as Laguardia and Kennedy Airports. Urbanski gave a TEDx talk on selfies entitled Selfies: A Visual Analysis which compared these instant self portraits to art historical precedents. She was the curator of the TEDx Navesink “Art at Play” exhibition, which was installed at the Two River Theater, Red Bank, NJ in the Spring of 2014. She is a member of Art Table and the Association of Professional Art Advisors, both based in New York City.
