The Gallery-on-the-Boulevard presents “Visions of the Shore” an exhibit by Anthony Rodriguez

The Gallery-on-the-Boulevard will present “Visions of the Shore” an exhibit of paintings and photography by multidisciplinary artist and musician, Anthony Rodriguez. The show will open on August 2nd and remain through November.

Rodriguez holds a BFA in Illustration and Visual Communications and a MFA in Painting and Photography. His paintings and photographs have been featured in multiple exhibits throughout New Jersey. He has been the recipient of artist residencies concentrating in painting from I-Park, Artist Enclave, in Connecticut and the Vermont Studio Center in Vermont. Mr. Rodriguez is also a guitarist for several NJ bands including The Accelerators and The Remains, to name a few.

Rodriguez states: “My work is influenced by artists I have admired: Picasso (red and blue periods), Hopper, Robert Henri, Gershon Benjamin, and late 19th –century painters such as Van Gogh and Monet. I’m also influenced by many film genres, such as film noir, which fuel my imagination and influence my work. I’m driven by the need to spill my vision in oil on canvas or panel and show the world what I see.”

All artwork is available for purchase by contacting the artist.
The exhibit is located in the Kenilworth Public Library. It is free and open to the public during regular library hours. For more information call 908-276-2451.
