Budget Entertainment In New Jersey

Straube Center Gallery Opening

Looking for something to do in New Jersey on these hot days? Well we have been graced with some rain that will hopefully cool it off for a few days, but even then, we find ourselves running for cover- so what to do?

Straube Center in Pennington, New Jersey houses some of the best artwork along their buildings hallways and art room in #100 and #112.

Their newest gallery showing is ‘Ominafarious’, translates ‘variety’ of artist and mediums. Attending the opening last evening we found ourselves surrounded by ‘Fiber Revolution’ handcrafted quilts of enormous talent, Home Front- Homeless Artworks that will touch you, and other wonderful artist who have put their brush to canvas. Bringing along some Asian Rice Noodles with locally grown wild garlic, mushrooms, and vegetable dumplings it seemed to be a well rounded evening with the great crowd.

Hubby and I also carted two bottles of wine to show our appreciation for the hard work that goes into a showing such as this- Alisandra Wederich, Art Curator for the Straube Center does a great job working with the artists and picking the show themes. What does not go well with people, wine, art, and food?

Check out more information on the website @ Straube Center– I highly recommend the trip to see the property which was a historical Contreau Distillery and sculpture garden; it has been preserved as close as possible on the outside structure to its original look. The Straube Office houses the old furnace (you see when entering front door) and more sculptures that are more sensitive to the elements of the outdoors.
