The gallery opening will feature artists’ interpretations of how their work relates to last year’s festival theme: “Relentless Rhythm: City in Motion”; live music from The Jazz Salonists and refreshments. This is a free event.

The Fall for Arts Festival, now entering its 13th year, is an annual Roosevelt Island event that invites artists – children and adults - to participate in the day- long mural and crafts festival set to a pre-determined theme. Participation in the event is free; as are all basic paints, brushes and primed painting surfaces. Winning murals will hang in the garage atrium for one year.

The 2018 Fall for Art Festival on the island will be held September 29, 2018.
Here are some of the murals from 2017 Roosevelt Island Fall For Arts Festival that will be displayed at the Motorgate Gallery.

Stop by tomorrow evening and take a look.
