Meet New Jersey's Arts Leaders: Lauren Otis, Executive Director, Artworks
Long-time Trenton resident Lauren Otis is the executive director of Artworks, a downtown arts center with the mission of connecting community, culture, and creativity through the arts. Located in a former Sears warehouse nestled between giant government buildings and the quaintly historic Mill Hill neighborhood of Trenton, Artworks’ workshops, exhibitions, and other events draw a wide cross-section of people from the city and beyond. Plus, it produces two big annual events: Art All Night, a two day “arts extravaganza” held in the Roebling Wire Works building; and Art All Day, a city-wide open studio tour. Art All Day is still tentatively scheduled to take place “in real life” this fall, but Art All Night 2020 will take place virtually the weekend of August 15-16. More about that later.

SOPAC's Gallery Displays Artwork By High School Students
(SOUTH ORANGE, NJ) -- For the last six years, the South Orange Performing Arts Center has presented the INSPIRED MINDS: Young Artist Exhibition as a celebration of Essex County young artists in the Herb + Milly Iris Gallery with an opening reception that draws over 100 attendees. The Center is now temporarily closed, but creativity knows no bounds as we’ve surely seen during this pandemic. Musicians are performing virtual concerts, teachers are giving online classes and some galleries are staging virtual exhibitions, and Director of Education Linda Beard and Gallery Curator Jeremy Moss have come up with a creative solution of their own to display these budding artists’ artwork during this time of social distancing.

"Tracing Origins" at Rowan University Art Gallery
Long before we were all instructed to stay home, art curators everywhere had in place their exhibition schedules for the foreseeable future. And while the shutdown prevented galleries and museums from publicly presenting, in many cases, it didn’t keep artists and curators from installing shows. But the complications were clear – opening receptions, where art lovers see the works and meet the creators, and the bricks-and-mortar exhibitions – were put on hold or canceled.

LIFE as We Knew It: "LIFE Magazine and the Power of Photographs" at Princeton University Art Museum
In a hard-to-fathom turn of events, the world we live in has become a virtual one. Just a few weeks back, I visited the Princeton University Art Museum and saw “LIFE Magazine and the Power of Photographs,” the exhibition that had opened on February 22. And, though I had no way of knowing it then, I got there just in the nick of time. That following week, things started to dramatically change. In addition to most museums closing, my day-job workplace shut its doors to all-but-essential staff (which apparently, I am not) and the adjustment to days filled with news-watching and fretting about food began in earnest.
New Jersey Stage Magazine Issue 69: The Show Isn't Going On
The latest issue of New Jersey Stage magazine has a cover which is all too familiar in today’s world - an empty theatre with the words “The Show Isn’t Going On.” We debated about not putting out an issue during this period, but felt it was best to actually mark this period in time. The issue is available for free at www.njartsmag.com

Light In An Era Of Darkness (a letter from the publisher)
When the South X Southwest music festival in Austin was cancelled, the COVID-19 pandemic became very real to millions of people. One after another, major events became cancelled or postponed. The Montclair Film Festival was one of the first big names in New Jersey to cancel, but it was far from the last. Some vowed to return later in the year or tried going virtual like the Garden State Film Festival, but the situation remained the same - nothing was going to be normal for quite a while.
