(HACKENSACK, NJ) -- Local artists from the borough of Leonia will present the group show from April 16 to May 31 at Edward Williams Hall Gallery at Fairleigh Dickinson University, located at 150 Kotte Place in Hackensack, New Jersey. The show’s title, “Do Not Enter”, is intended to be a humorous play-on-words of the borough of Leonia's recent enactment of new traffic rules.
Leonia, once the site of a renowned, thriving art colony, continues to attract artists in a range of medium. The borough’s lengthy list of prominent visual artists included Charles Chapman and painter and etcher Grant Reynard. The Leoniaartists presenting their work in this show perpetuate that rich heritage.

Making Newark A City Of The ArtsIf you recall, back in January, I reported on Newark’s community info session for the conversion of a long dormant bank building on South Ward’s Clinton Ave. into an artist’s housing and creative community center. That session, and the details shared, is just one of the multi-pronged efforts Brick City is making to revitalize every ward in Newark, not just the downtown area. It’s also a part of Newark’s efforts to brand itself as a “city of the arts.”
