Plainfield artist, designer featured at "Mansion in May' showcase in Morristown


Alnwick (The Abbey) on Madison Avenue
is the site of this year's "Mansion in May" showcase.


Plainfield artist Gerry Heydt, well known for her landscapes, garden and floral paintings, is partnering with Bill Santoriello, owner of Plainfield Restoration and Reproduction, and Studio 7 gallery of Bernardsville (where Gerry's work is on view and for sale), to decorate a space in the "Mansion in May" showcase house this year.

The showcase is a fundraiser for Morristown Medical Center and is organized by their Women's auxiliary.

The mansion -- originally known as Alnwick, and subsequently "The Abbey" -- sits along the mansion row on Madison Avenue between Morristown and Madison.

Sixty-four top designers from around the region have renovated and decorated 41 spaces in the 20,000 square foot mansion and 17 landscapes on the spacious property. Over 1,300 volunteers will staff the showcase during May.




"Along the Passaic II", painted in the Great Swamp,
is among the works of Heydt being exhibited.

Heydt, Santoriello and Studio 7 are in space #13 on the second floor, where 17 of Gerry's works are featured. Gerry's website is here, where she displays a variety of her works; Studio 7's website is here, where you can see more of Gerry's work. Plainfield Restoration and Reproduction's website is here (you may want to check Bill's Angie's List rating here).

The "Mansion in May" showcase is open 10 Am - 3 PM every day through the month of May. Tickets may be bought online here ($40/person if bought in April; $50 if bought in May). The showcase website also has useful information on offsite parking, as well as on the work of the Women's Association.
