Press release from Frame to Please

In the classic movie Pride of the Yankees, Hall of Famer Lou Gehrig promises to hit two home runs in a single World Series game, as a pledge to a seriously ill young boy named Billy. Beginning this month, Gehrig, his fellow Yankee Captains, and a host of sports and entertainment legends all have a part to play — as a Red Bank gallery and an award-winning New Jersey artist team to hit one over the fence, on behalf of cancer-afflicted children and their families.

As the latest in a series of Art from the Heart exhibits inside The Galleria building, Frame to Please co-owner Megan Prenderville presents Capturing the Game, a showcase of paintings and prints by fine artist Mike Kupka. A resident of Rahway whose work is inspired by music, movies and his love of sports, Kupka’s pieces appear worldwide in galleries, and are in the private collections of numerous celebrities and athletes.

Beginning with a meet-the-artist on Friday, August 28 from 6 to 9 pm, the exhibit continues at The Galleria building through September 30, with proceeds from all art sales benefiting the nonprofit Ashley Lauren Foundation.
