Vernissage 8 at RIVAA

The Roosevelt Island Visual Arts Association (RIVAA) is hosting Vernissage 8 starting on March 14, 2009 running through April 19, 2009. This group show is always a great one to catch as the variance of artists is extremely enjoyable.

As per Bonnie Goodman of RIVAA: "Vernissage has its roots in the old practice of setting aside a day before an exhibition’s opening for artists to varnish and put finishing touches to their paintings – a tradition that dates back to 1809 when it was instituted by England’s Royal Academy of Arts."
