LINWOOD — Nashville North Studios will present its end-of-summer group exhibit, “Inspired by Frida Kahlo,” and solo exhibit by Northfield resident Joe Rha beginning Aug. 23 with its Fourth Friday Art & Music Reception.

“This monthlong exhibit will highlight artistry that is both beautiful and thought provoking,” said Judith Saylor Allison, co-owner of the studio with her husband, Jim.

Kenn Dorn, the former saxophone player for Chubby Checker, and big band leader Lou Giunta will provide the music and may even play a couple of Mexican tunes to put guests in the mood for Kahlo.

The Solo Gallery will feature the art of Rha, a 2016 graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. His work has been shown in Philadelphia and New York City in curated exhibitions. 

“The painting practice arrives through painterly and personal intentions. The end game is clarity,” Rha said.

The montly Art Talk is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4. Rha will speak about his journey in the world of art and how the painting evolves in thought before it is executed. Additionally, a workshop is scheduled for 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 10, when Rha will demonstrate the proper way to stretch canvas over stretcher bars, how to make a small wood panel and different preparations between oil and synthetic primers. Reservations are necessary for both events as space is limited.  Call Nashville North Studios for more details.

This Fourth Friday Artists Reception is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. at Nashville North Studios, Suite 8 in Linwood Greene, 210 Route 9 in Linwood. All works are for sale and personalized gift certificates are available upon request. 

For more information, call (609) 504-5044 or visit nashvillenorthstudios.com. 

The studio’s next opening is scheduled for Sept. 27 featuring the group exhibit “Paris Affair” and a solo exhibit by Somers Point artist Kathleen Arleth. Regular business hours are noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and by appointment.
