These Walls Can Talk - 10 yr anniversary show Friday, February 1, 2019 • 06:00 PM - 12:00 AM • Boonton,NJ
Speakeasy Art Gallery will be celebrating their 10 year milestone with the exhibit, "These Walls Can Talk" opening Friday, February 1st. The exhibit will showcase one piece of art from each artist who has had a solo exhibit at the gallery. Opening reception Friday, February 1st from 6-9pm. On January 23, 2009 Speakeasy Art Gallery opened it's doors to it's brick and mortar gallery in Boonton, NJ. Previously, owner and founder Paul Jach was curating pop-up shows at lounges, clubs and bars in NYC and Northern NJ, which is where the name originated. Paul partnered in the gallery located in Boonton with art consultant and installer, Michael Paquette. At the time of the grand opening it was the height of the great recession and Boonton had a lot of empty store fronts. Cautiously, they signed a 6 month lease to see how it went. Bucking the trend of most new and established businesses at the time, the gallery flourished. After two years, Paul and Michael found that they had different visions of how they saw the gallery evolving. So they amicably parted ways, Michael remained in the original space and opened Gallery Paquette while Paul moved Speakeasy Art Gallery across the street to it's new location where it has remained for the last eight years. At that point, Paul's wife Kristy Brucale Jach came on board as the co-owner of the gallery. The gallery has always aimed to exhibit art that is new, interesting and out of the ordinary. Paul was always drawn to the aesthetic of publications such as Hi Fructose and Juxtapoz. He wanted to fill a void with a gallery that exhibited work of this kind in Northern New Jersey. Artists working in this style from the area and as far as Japan have become a part of Speakeasy Art Gallery's impressive stable of artists. They have done close to 30 solo shows and over 50 exhibits all together. The gallery was instrumental in establishing a first Friday event in Boonton, holding there opening receptions on that day each month. The gallery and it's owners have received many accolades over the past decade including being voted the Best Gallery in Morris County multiple years by publications such as the Daily Record and Morris/Essex Health & Life. In 2013 the Boonton Main Street organization named Speakeasy Art Gallery "Business of the year". The Morris County Arts Council, Morris Arts, awarded Paul & Kristy the "Outstanding Professional in the Arts" award in 2014, that same year they also received "Citizens of the Year" honors from the Town of Boonton. The gallery owners are proud of what they have accomplished in the past 10 years, providing a venue for emerging and established artists to exhibit their work and nurturing the next generation of artists with their classes. They are now excited to move into their second decade, continuing to push the envelope of what can be shown in a gallery in New Jersey! Participating artists include: Christine Wagner Michael Teters Ryan Ganley Rob Barth JMR Peet Sketches Francesca Azzara Tom Shelton Amy Puccio Toni Silber-Delerive Rob Hessler Jan Huling Tricia Zimic C. Spliedt Anthony Weird Eye One Mike Moran Betty McGeehan Dave Calver Mike Bell Kelly Vetter Kasey Tararuj Jenna Morello Bill Ross Elisabeth Ladwig Jim Somers Justin Long Dion Hitchings Adam Gustavson Ezerd

Mendelssohn’s mastery of melody, form, counterpoint, and the chamber idiom were imitated for generations. Bookended by Mendelssohn’s own works, his admirers respond with their own Mendelssohnian gifts: Schumann’s piano trio; Brahms’s lyricism through the dark voice of the viola; and Tchaikovsky’s character pieces, combining Russian melancholy and splendor in selections from “The Seasons”. INON BARNATAN, Piano CHO-LIANG LIN, Violin PAUL NEUBAUER, Viola JAKOB KORANYI, Cello ROMIE DE GUISE-LANGLOIS, Clarinet Pre-Concert chat with the artists at 7:15 pm

Dr. K's Motown Review Saturday, June 29, 2019 • 08:00 PM - 12:00 AM • Hackettstown,NJ
2019 Fundraiser for the Hackettstown Rotary! Without a doubt, The Motown Sound has left an indelible stamp on the heart, soul and mind of several generations of fans worldwide. Over the years many of the artist and writers responsible for bringing to the world this incredible body of work has passed on. The music however, lives on through movies, radio, television commercials, collectible CD's, dance halls, weddings and karaoke clubs. It's not just the songs but the memories associated with them that have forever imprinted the Motown Sound in the hearts and souls of music fans. Without even consciously realizing it, we all know every lyric, melody and instrumental phrases associated with the songs. So much so that if a live band plays the songs and leaves out any of these memorable licks, we know it and subconsciously add it in ourselves. That brings us to Paul Korman and his visionary quest to create the ultimate Motown tribute band. *Not included in Flex Pass!*
Summer Fest: Nunsense Thursday, July 11, 2019 • 07:30 PM - 12:00 AM • HACKETTSTOWN,NJ
Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns,tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages. Book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin "A hail of fun and frolic- Nunsense, like the holy mother church, is a bona fide institution." - The New York Times
