The exhibition was a presented by the Wayne County Arts Alliance and the Hawley Silk Mill. As curator, Rocky Pinciotti designed the exhibition space transforming the 5,000 square foot newly painted raw space into a beautiful flowing gallery. He then selected 62 artists from the surrounding 11 counties to exhibit in one of the areas most exciting temporary art venues.

The inagural "Black Tie" party, pre-opening artists event at Ledges, the opening reception and the Friday night artists talks were all exciting events.

The "Fish" theme of this exhibition seemed appropriate since the Arts Center is located on the banks of the Delaware river in Sullivan County. The area is also home to the birth of Fly Fishing on the nearby Beaver Kill river. A open call was put out to artists who had work dealing with fish imagery both literal and conceptional. The exhibition included painting, prints, photographs, ceramics, mixed media and installation works. Bowls of "Goldfish" crackers were served at the opening reception and a good time was had by all.
The exhibition featured 23 artists whose work addressed the theme of fish. Below are images of gallery visitors playing with Rocky's contribution to the show. His "Go Fish" portfolio deck of cards feature an array of Rocky's images that relate to fish, water and nature and are used to play the traditional game of "Fish".
