Complimentary Art Brunch & Browse in New Rochelle June 13th

May 14, 2010 - 06:07

On Sunday, June 13th from 1 to 5 P.M. Westchester artist, art collector and enthusiast Yvonne Wynter will open her home at 52 Nob Court in New Rochelle to art gallery owners, interior designers and the public for "Brunch & Browse", a reception and exhibition of art by the local well-known artist David Tobey. The event marks the closing of a two month showcase held there of Tobey's work that features paintings, sculptures and new prints by the artist.
Ms. Wynter first saw Tobey's art at his solo exhibition in November of '09 at BID Gallery 542, a gallery established last year by the Business Improvement District of New Rochelle. She fell in love with his work, and purchased a number of his paintings for her own collection. "Once I saw David's work" she said, "I knew that many of my friends who were also art enthusiasts would want to see them too. There were only a few days left before David's show at the BID Gallery was closing, so I just decided to offer the walls in my own home for him to show them later in the year." It turned out that Mrs. Wynter was right. Many of her friends who saw David's art immediately fell in love with it too, and the first event attended by over 100 people was a huge success.
