An exhibition showcasing more  than 50 paintings and welded steel sculptures by Westchester artist David Tobey will be on display at the White Plains Museum Gallery at the White Plains Library starting March 30.

Artist, teacher and Westchester Philharmonic Orchestra violinist, Tobey has created an extensive collection of pop and abstract art, as well as sculptures.  He is the son of the late Larchmont historical painter Alton S. Tobey, with whom he studied.

The exhibition will run through June 15 at the Museum Gallery, 100 Martine Ave. in White Plains. The exhibition will include art for sale, with 20 percent of the proceeds going to The Friends of the White Plains Library and The White Plains Library Foundation.

A free reception for the show, at which Tobey will be performing on violin with keyboard artist Kirk Ehrenreich, will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on March 30 at the gallery. All are welcome.

More information on the exhibition can be found on Tobey’s web site.

  1. In addition to having his sculpture at three locations in Westchester, Tobey just installed seven of his welded steel pieces at Rye Town Park, 95 Dearborn Avenue in Rye.

    The park will open this exhibition of his sculpture by their Duck Pond on this Saturday afternoon, October 22nd from 2-4 with a free and open to all reception party for the artist. The event will feature live music by KirkMusic Productions of Westchester’s jazz quartet “The Pink and Green Cafe”; complimentary refreshments and free parking for all guests.

    The sculpture show at the park will run through November 17th, and a portion of any proceeds from the sale of sculpture will go to benefit The Friends of Rye Town Park.

    Photos and more information on the event are on the artist’s web site at http://www.davidtobey.com, or call him at (914) 632-8226.

    In addition to the artwork and live music, the park — with a Long Island Sound beachfront and over 20 acres of landscaped paths and lawns — is a great place to view the fall foliage, that will be at its height this weekend.

    The park expects ghood attendance, so come early to stroll around the
    and enjoy the landscape, complimentary snacks & beverages, see the sculpture and the ducks at the pond; and at 2:30 attend the mini-concert. Many art and music people are expected, and we hope you can join us!
