Josef Kote – Drifting Away
May 27 @ 7:00 pm – May 28 @ 10:00 pm
Josef Kote - Drifting Away @ Ocean Galleries

Ocean Galleries is delighted to welcome Josef Kote to Stone Harbor for his first NJ exhibition over Memorial Day Weekend – Friday, May 26 through Monday, May 29. Meet the artist 7-10 PM Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28. A New York-based artist, Kote is best known for his distinctive style and technique. His paintings are symphonies of light and color that are lyrically stunning and romantic, edgy and current. Kote achieves this delicate balance of seemingly contradictory qualities through his complete mastery of technique and through years of experimenting to find his own unique style. With the lightness of a true master’s hand, he combines classic academic and abstract elements, fusing these, literally letting them run into each other with dripping colors and light, by using his signature drip effect along the bottom. Kote’s trademarks are his bold brushwork, and sweeping strokes of vibrant colors applied – more often than not – with a pallet knife, while other areas of the canvas are left monochromatic and devoid of detail, creating a negative space that lets the eye drift to infinity. The results are paintings that tremble in stillness with energy and light.

Civics 101: What Does It Mean to Be a Good Citizen?
Jun 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Civics 101: What Does It Mean to Be a Good Citizen? @ The Royal Theater at the University of Scranton’s McDade Center for Literary and Performing Arts | Scranton | Pennsylvania | United States

In many countries, citizenship means you are required to DO something. In America, a fundamental right for many is the freedom FROM government. But the 2016 election saw voter turnout at a 20-year low. Some polls show a public either turned off by politics and government, or unwilling to engage with people with different views. Other polls show many Americans are uninformed when it comes to basic facts about their country. Some are reflecting on whether the United States is at a crisis point with regard to civic engagement. In an era of seemingly toxic partisanship and withdrawal from the public sphere, is freedom from government enough to ensure a healthy democracy?

NPR’s Going There with Michel Martin and WVIA present a provocative discussion around the question of what is means to be a good citizen in 2017. Is it voting? Paying taxes? Serving in the military? Protesting injustice or resisting over-reaching authority? Is it volunteering in your neighborhood school, or some form of national service or running for office? Join the conversation on Twitter with #NPRGoodNeighbor and at @NPRMichel.

Legendary music icons, THREE DOG NIGHT, celebrating nearly 5 decades, claims some of the most astonishing statistics in popular music.

THREE DOG NIGHT hits wind through the fabric of pop culture today, whether on the radio where they are heard day in and day out, in TV commercials or in major motion pictures — songs like “Mama Told Me (Not To Come)”, “Joy to the World”, “Black and White”, “Shambala” and “One” serve to heighten our emotions and crystallize THREE DOG NIGHT’s continuing popularity. Don’t miss THREE DOG NIGHT at the Sherman Theater on Sunday, June 11th!

Vince Gill @ FM Kirby Center

Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Vince Gill, will perform at the F.M. Kirby Center on Thursday, June 15 at 7:00 p.m., as part of the Wells Fargo Concerts and Comedy Series.

It would have been easy for Vince Gill to kick back a bit when working on Down to My Last Bad Habit, his 18th studio album. After all, when you’ve sold more than 26 million albums, won 20 Grammys, and earned 18 CMA Awards (including two Entertainer of the Year trophies), you’ve done it all, right?

Not a chance, says this musician extraordinaire, who produced the new album with engineer Justin Niebank. The record, released this past February, is Gill’s first solo album as part of a new deal with MCA, the label he joined in 1989.

If I Ran the Zoo – The Art of Dr. Seuss @ Ocean Galleries | Stone Harbor | New Jersey | United States

If I Ran the Zoo, a compelling selection of limited edition artwork from The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection, will be on display Father’s Day weekend at Ocean Galleries in Stone Harbor, NJ, featuring his little-known Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy. Noted Dr. Seuss expert, Jeff Schuffman, will share insight on the exhibition during receptions 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Saturday, June 17 and 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 18, 2017. Eighty years have passed since Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, produced what he called his “Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy,” an amazing menagerie of Seussian animals often constructed from real animal beaks, antlers, horns, lions’ teeth, rabbit ears, and turtle shells. Celebrating the release of Dr. Seuss’s Powerless Puffer – the final Marine Muggs cast-resin sculpture in the Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy – a traveling exhibition is being launched to feature all 17 of these incomparable artworks. This new exhibition, If I Ran the Zoo, marks the first time all 17 sculptures have been presented together in an exhibition dedicated to Dr. Seuss’s sculptural heritage. The exhibition highlights Dr. Seuss’s little-known sculptural legacy and spotlights the fascinating correlations between his two-dimensional artworks and three-dimensional sculptures. The exhibition will also feature rarely seen estate authorized limited editions from the Secret and Archive Art Collections. All sculptures and artwork will be available for acquisition. If I Ran the Zoo opens Friday, June 16 and runs through Monday, June 19, 2017.

Sal “the Voice” Valentinetti
Jun 17 @ 8:00 pm
Sal "the Voice" Valentinetti @ Sherman Theater

A voice from a different Decade

Sal first learned the American standards at his grandmother’s knee and his passion grew further when he discovered his hidden vocal talent in his teenage years. “Sal the Voice,” as he is known by everyone from Brooklyn to Bayshore, can be found on most Sundays sipping cappuccino at the café, telling stories, making jokes and planning his next move – to bring back to American pop culture the consummate, classy, old-school entertainer with a heart of gold.

When his grandmother passed away, her music was all Sal had to remember her by. He had previously tried out for season 14 of American Idol, where he successfully made it past the auditions but did not proceed to the live shows. On Season 11 of Americas Got Talent Sal wowed the judges and won Heidi Klum’s golden buzzer. He then made it past the Semi-Finals and competed in the Final Show.

The songs on band’s sixth album, Like an Arrow, show just how far this authentic American rock band has come as the accomplished group of musicians tackles a diverse set of new ideas, sounds and territories, long after most bands with half the success might have settled into a well-worn groove.

Like An Arrow has been well received by fans and critics alike, landing at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Country and Americana/Folk charts.

Stay for Fireworks on Tuesday, July 4.

Take a horse-drawn hitch wagon or pony ride. Pet a gentle alpaca, bounce on an inflatable house, or ride a mechanical bull. These experiences, live entertainment and much more are included in the price of admission. Free on-site parking and shuttle service is available.

Hamburgers, BBQ chicken, French fries, ice cream, and a variety of other foods, as well as country crafts and Star Barn souvenirs will be available for sale at the event.

Bring your own camping chair or blanket, relax, and enjoy watching The Star Barn come to life. Proceeds from ticket sales will be utilized to offset the cost of the event and restoration of The Star Barn and its related structures.

The number of people that can be admitted to this event is limited and we would not want you to miss out on this opportunity to experience history. For more information about The Star Barn Complex, go to: thestarbarn.com.
