The Andrea’s Gallery which is located within the Renegade Winery in Stroudsburg, PA held an Artists’ Reception for their Five Artists Exhibition featuring the works of Jim Chesnick, Jim Wyckoff, Tess Carbone DeLuise, Heidi Hooper, and Andrea Robbins Rimberg on Sunday March 20th. A sizable number of individuals gathered in the venue with many coming from the Annual St Patrick’s Day Parade that was taking place in the town during the event. The talents of each individual artist proved to be exceptional demonstrations of various creative techniques. Yet, the images presented by each artist blended wonderfully with the other works that were presented. The Exhibition will continue to be on display until August 15th.

The gallery’s curator is Andrea Robbins Rimberg who once owned an Art Gallery known as “Soho in the Burg” that once occupied the space where the Renegade Winery currently is. The winery reserves a space within their establishment so the work from the artists she showcased when it was her gallery can still be enjoyed by those who visit the site. Her photographic work can be seen at the Monroe County Historical Association Stroud Mansion in Stroudsburg, PA and in the archives of the National Museum for Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. She was also commissioned to do a bust of Governor Tom Ridge while he was Secretary of Homeland Security.

The owners of the Renegade Winery in Stroudsburg, PA began as the Pocono Mountain Region’s first urban concept winery. They participated in numerous outdoor market places and festivals to introduce their wine. Although they still partake of the opportunities presented by these venues, their 600 Main Street location in Stroudsburg, PA is the epicenter of their business. They present live music during the weekends and offer a space to hold special events like wedding showers and other celebrations.
