Open StudioYU Art Show: March 2017

Indulge your senses and join us every Thursday to Sunday, the entire month of March, for an international art exhibition, live artists’ demos, special sale of artwork directly from the artists, raffles / giveaways, live music (see HVV calendar), brick oven pizza, and plenty of award-winning wines, while surrounded by fun and friendly company. From Latin American to Chinese American, and everything in between, we are celebrating cross cultural experiences through art, painted by citizens of the world. In this premier event, StudioYU and Hopewell Valley Vineyards have teamed up to bring together artists who would otherwise never meet, and they have opened up their studio to the general public as they paint on site in a 75 acre vineyard in the heart of New Jersey.

Each featured artist provides a distinctly unique commentary that feeds into the broader vision and international experience of StudioYU. DeFelice (left) captures her experiences of extensive world travel on canvas with a desire to transcend traditional ethnic identities. Bensliman (2nd from the left), a Tunisian social artist and designer, expresses her cultural roots through recycled materials and doodles. Ramos (2nd from the right) communicates ideas and emotions through daring colors reminiscent of Latin America. J. Yu (right), StudioYU’s founder, beautifully intermingles east and west cultures within pieces that merge Asian brush techniques with western mediums. Their demo dates and details of this event is located at

StudioYU was founded in 2015 with a dream of existing in a more collaborative, interactive, and culturally-vibrant art world. Through an online platform that selects noteworthy, yet underrepresented international artists, the organization works to enable these artists to collaborate without borders and reach a wider community of art-lovers and art-seekers. This Open StudioYU Art Show is a step towards creating this reality. Be a part of the cross-cultural experience this March and support StudioYU’s vision for building international, social, and cultural awareness in the arts. Visit for more information about StudioYU’s mission and join us in bringing the community together.

There will be an opening reception on March 2, 6-9pm at Hopewell Valley Vineyard on 46 Yard Rd. in Pennington, NJ. All are welcome to attend this public event. This exhibition provides an experience like no other, in which influence is drawn from a spectrum of geographic locations ranging from Hong Kong to Ecuador. Mark your calendar today!
