BlueStone Gallery opens in Milford
MILFORD, PA Borrowing its name from the bedrock of Pike County, BlueStone Gallery has opened its doors on East Ann Street in Milford. Gallery owner Robert Levine will exhibit both fine and functional art, and plans for the gallery to become a center for intimate cultural events in Milford.
Levine, along with his operating partner David Greenbaum, who is himself a nationally recognized potter, have selected 12 artists for their opening exhibition. These artists include painters, sculptors, a wood turner, a glass artist, a blacksmith, a clothing-designing couple as well as Greenbaum.
Levine, an intellectual property attorney in New York, and his wife, the writer Suzanne Braun Levine, have spent weekends in the region for over 30 years. Inspired by the creation of the Hotel Fauchere, Levine found himself spending more and more time in Milford. I found that I wanted to become part of the Milford community, involved and committed not just a visitor said Levine. The gallery is an opportunity to combine my interests and abilities and to contribute to the cultural life of Milford.
Levine and Greenbaum intend to edit their exhibition regularly and to continuously add new artists. They are offering regional artists an opportunity not just to show their work but to become part of the new BlueStone community. What most surprised me, said Levine, was that of all the artists we selected for our first exhibition, none of them knew any of the others.
BlueStone Gallery is located at 104 East Ann Street in Milford and will be open Friday through Sunday every week from 11:00 a.m. through 6:00 p.m.
