Russ Conn 150th Art Exhibit
Thanks to a generous donation by our local community hospital, Saint Clare’s Health, a selection of local artist Russel Conn's watercolors, featuring Main St. and other Boonton venues, which haven’t been seen in Boonton for 35 years, are being made available to the public for viewing. Lovingly and professionally reproduced by John Castronovo's Boonton Main Street business, Techphoto, the art will be on display in the coming months to honor Boonton's 150th birthday. Currently 3 Main Street galleries (Broadfoot & Broadfoot, Speakeasy and Black River Gallery) are discussing the best way to make them available to the public. In addition, Saint Clare’s Health will be hosting an open house to view the originals at the hospital. Keep an eye out for more details around the Boonton Day Celebration weekend.
More thanks are in order to A. Lloyd Charlton who has loaned his collection of Bob Bogue paintings for display during the 150th celebration year. Featured in Lloyd's Book, The Artistry of Bob Bogue, more than 15 paintings were done over the last several years as Lloyd asked his old friend Bob (now in his 80s) to paint works of personal significance to Lloyd. Lloyd’s family history in Boonton dates back several generations. Keep an eye out for the Bogue collection during the September 150th Celebration weekend.
