Rare Wildlife Revealed: The James Fiorentino Traveling Art Exhibition

Jan 13-Feb 19

Rare Wildlife Revealed: The James Fiorentino Traveling Art Exhibition 

Pollak Gallery - 9 AM

The youngest artist ever inducted into the prestigious New York Society of Illustrators, Fiorentino uses his trademark detail and realism in watercolor to paint New Jersey’s most endangered and vulnerable wildlife species. His evocative artwork inspires viewers through his life-like depictions of rare wildlife in their natural surroundings. His paintings truly bring wildlife to life on paper, and in doing so, his art helps to educate and engage viewers about the precipitous declines that many of these species have undergone. This exhibition is presented in partnership with Conserve Wildlife Foundation.

NATURE AND NURTURE - Mother/Daughter Artists: The Paintings of Cheryl Griesbach and Claudia Griesbach-Martucci

Sep 5-Dec 3

NATURE AND NURTURE - Mother/Daughter Artists: The Paintings of Cheryl Griesbach and Claudia Griesbach-Martucci 

Rotary Ice House Gallery - 10 AM

In 2000, Cheryl Griesbach began creating a body of paintings based on her interests in European 18th and 19th century still-life, botanical and landscape art. Her method includes the manipulation of segments of Northern European paintings and incorporating that imagery in building a new landscape, like a stage. Following in her parent’s footsteps Claudia Griesbach also attended the School of Visual Arts and with her background in illustration and oil painting, a skill she learned from her mother, each of her paintings tells a story. In her most recent work she explores the notion “that behind every exquisite thing that exists there is something tragic,” a quote from Oscar Wilde’s Portrait of Dorian Gray.

WOMEN IN THE WORLD… A VISUAL PERSPECTIVE

Grauer, uses the work of a socially and culturally diverse group of New Jersey based women artists to explore this seemingly simple topic. The images in this exhibit are not necessarily intended to be a literal interpretation of the theme, rather they often offer a metaphorical relationship to the theme. This inspiring exhibit is not to be missed! Opening Reception: Feb. 10, 6:30-8:30 PM. Exhibiting Artists include: Sybil Archibald, Anonda Bell, Cathleen McCoy Bristol, Eleta Caldwell, Caren King Choi, Dominique Duroseau, Anne Dushanko Dobek, Adebunmi Gbadebo, Evelyn Graves, Donna Conklin King, Yolande Skeete-Laessig, Grace Graupe Pillard, Patricia Arias-Reynolds, Melissa Saenz, Danielle Scott, Armisey Smith, Nette Thomas, Toni Thomas, Shoshanna Weinberger, and Adrienne Wheeler.

Drones by Karina Aguilera Skvirsky

Drones are in the news.

This series includes landscapes from US, Ecuador and other unidentifiable locations. Skvirsky is a multi-disciplinary artist who works in photography, video and performance. Her work has been exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions. She teaches at Lafayette College and The New School, Parsons School of Design.
