As winter turns to spring, preparations for The Osborn’s Annual Easter Egg Hunt begin. The annual event is held in memory of longtime board member and former chair, Jack Miller. On Saturday, April 20, at 11:15 a.m., The Osborn (101 Theall Road, Rye) will welcome the entire community for a morning full of springtime and Easter fun. Annually, for nearly two decades, the event has been drawing hundreds of participants from throughout Westchester County, as well as southern Fairfield County, Conn. During the festivities, 6,000+ Easter eggs will be hidden for children to find, gather, and enjoy. The event is split into two groups – one for children under 3 years of age and the other for children over 3. This allows the little ones to get a head start on the hunt.
The event provides the opportunity for seniors and children to interact in a way many may not have the opportunity to do otherwise. Residents of The Osborn flank the sidelines of the great lawn and South Porch to have a birds-eye view of the annual event.
“The event is such a wonderful gathering of people of all ages to share some holiday fun,” says Matt Anderson, president and CEO of The Osborn. “It also allows visitors to enjoy The Osborn’s wonderful 56-acre campus during the most beautiful time of the year.”
The egg hunt is free and open to the public and pre-registration is NOT required. The hunt begins promptly at 11:15 a.m. with gates opening at 10:45 a.m. The Osborn is located at 101 Theall Road in Rye (just off Playland Parkway Access). Participants are asked to bring their own baskets to gather eggs. The Easter Bunny will make an appearance and be available for photos. The event features a live DJ, dancing, and games. Lunches, which include a hot dog, drink, chips, and cookie for only $5.00, will be available. For information about the Easter Egg Hunt, please call (914) 925-8218 or visit TheOsborn.org.

Heaven and Earth – new paintings by David Konigsberg
Kenise Barnes Fine Art is pleased to present Heaven and Earth, an exhibition of new oil paintings by contemporary artist David Konigsberg. This is the artist’s fifth solo show with the gallery who has had the honor of representing the artist since 2007.
With this new body of work, Konigsberg revisits the eternal and fascinating relationship between earth and sky—between stoic landscapes and their influencing opposite: a troposphere bursting with activity and rapidly shifting intention and mood.
Konigsberg, an inveterate hiker, depends on the natural world for the captured and imagined drama in his paintings. Living in the upper Hudson Valley, which is still rural and agricultural, the artist is surrounded by mountains laced with foot trails; it is an ideal location for a painter whose compositions are a testament to the sweetness of lingering recollections and the introspective journeys they inspire. David Konigsberg’s work bridges the divide between art and real life in paintings that are both objective and conceptual and are a meditation on life and creativity.
“The work in this cycle reflects a welcome (if never quite settled) return to form, after a year of challenges that left me with a truer appreciation than ever of the sweep of time. Nothing, for me, expresses this better than the never-ending rhythms of the natural landscape, and the considerable but ultimately temporary imprint of human activity.” – David Konigsberg, 2019
The artist’s work has been exhibited throughout out the United States and has been featured in The New York Times, Chronogram, Wall Street International and Brooklyn Journal as well as numerous art and culture blogs. David Konigsberg lives and works in Hudson, New York.
A link to the digital exhibition catalogue for Heaven and Earth can be found on our website KBFA.com
Additional space in our project room is reserved for framed drawings and our flat files which house hundreds of unframed works on paper. We always have a wide selection of paintings, drawings, prints, monoprints and photographs to offer collectors. We maintain an extensive inventory in our warehouse that includes a private presentation room.
In-home or office consultations are complimentary.
Please contact the gallery for images, information or to arrange a preview of exhibitions.
