Artist David John Rush Invited to 20th Anniversary Retrospective Juried Exhibition

To celebrate their 20th anniversary and highlight their mission of community and charity, the Park Avenue Club Art Committee invited New Jersey artists to submit their work in a juried exhibition entitled, 20th Anniversary Retrospective. Chosen for his submission, artist David John Rush captured the theme with a series of contemporary paintings on four panels called, Quadriptych.
“My concept was to depict the development and growth of the Park Avenue Club through its 20 years of giving to the community,” commented David Rush. “Quadriptych takes you from the Club’s initial concept to its present day continuation of success. I’m happy the Park Avenue Art Committee liked my thought process and interpretation of their theme. They deserve recognition of their on-going work and if my paintings help to do that it’s all the more satisfying.”
Mr. Rush’s paintings, as well as the work of many other artists, can be seen September 8 through January 5, 2015 in the Hedley Room at the Park Avenue Club located at 184 Park Avenue, Florham Park, N.
