Toni Raiten-D’Antonio art exhibit runs to March 27

March 22, 2012 by  

If the flyer printing around town hasn’t already caught people’s eyes, the effort that the Smithtown Township Arts Council has put into promoting one of its latest exhibits is sure to garner attention sooner or later.

From today until the 27th, the Arts Council will be showing the works of the very talented Toni Raiten-D’Antonio at Apple Bank. As explained on the Smithtown Township Arts Council website, this artist is one of many who didn’t get into painting, initially, with the intention sharing her work with the world. According to Raiten-D’Antonio, her art began as a type of personal therapy and tells the story of her personal memories. While this exhibition is still showing, Smithtown residents will be able to see Toni’s skill for themselves. Since there are no fees for this one, art-lovers have nothing to lose.

Speaking of artists that are getting their names out there, there are at least a couple of exhibits being held in communities not too far from here. Among these is the Group Exhibit that the Smithtown Library’s Nesconset branch has been showing since the 7th with the intention of wrapping things up this weekend. Featuring the work of a number of local artists, the amount of variety to be seen here is something worth checking out.

When it comes to finding fun ways to spend an afternoon, it’s tough to beat what some of these free artist showcases have to offer residents.
