History Relayed by a Fine Artist

by Ilene Dube, JerseyArts.com - published 2024-07-06

The woman in the photograph wears a perfectly crisp blouse, skirt, and apron. Even the mending work on her lap looks freshly ironed—and mind you, this was several decades before the permanent press was a thing. The combination of polka dots, checks, and plaid on the statuesque figure projects a panoply of patterns with the screen door behind her.

WhittemoreCCC's "Bridging Nature" Exhibit Creates Connection within the NJ Art Scene

by Sara Catherine Lichon - published 2024-06-26

​​​​​​​New Jersey has a truly diverse and thriving art scene, drawing inspiration everywhere from the high rises of Jersey City to the tree canopy in Hunterdon County. This is the theme of WhittemoreCCC (WCCC)'s latest art exhibit, "Bridging Nature." This exhibit not only comments on how humanity can connect to nature, but also creates a bridge between the two seemingly-distant sides of northern New Jersey: the eastern, more dense metropolises and the western, more rural forests and fields. With almost 40 submissions, WCCC's first small-works exhibit brings together a large array of ideas about nature, while also tying together several strands of the Jersey art scene into one stunning tapestry.

by Chris Lillja, JerseyArts.com - published 2024-06-20

Art All Night Trenton (AANT) has always been a vibrant and immersive celebration of art, culture, and the community that is Trenton, New Jersey. While the pandemic turned it into a virtual event, this highly-anticipated return to an in-person format brings together artists, performers, and art enthusiasts from all walks of life in the capital region, transforming part of the city into a colorful and lively hub of creativity. With its rich history and diverse artistic landscape, Trenton (and AANT's new home - the Trenton War Memorial Building) provides the perfect backdrop for this weekend-long extravaganza.

Camden FireWorks Tells a Story in Quilts

by Shen Shellenberger, JerseyArts.com - published 2024-04-18

I love an "a-ha moment" – that point when timing, circumstance, and cognition meet – and within minutes of stepping into the opening reception for Camden FireWorks' current exhibition, "Storytelling Quilts: Celebrating Communal Textile Traditions," I had one of those moments.

by Ilene Dube, JerseyArts.com - published 2024-04-14

In the current exhibition at the CASE Gallery at Rowan University, a basket sits on a podium overflowing with black buttons whose white letters ask: "Where's Bernstein?" Just who is Bernstein, anyway?

Bridging Nature and the Man-Made - "Reverie of the Natural & Found" Combines Assemblage and Environmental Art at WhittemoreCCC

by Sara Catherine Lichon - published 2024-03-29

On a sunny spring evening, you enter a small and unassuming art gallery nestled in the forest. It's buzzing with excitement. Classical guitar weaves through the rooms, filling the space between conversations and observations. On a table near the door lies a gigantic, custom-made charcuterie board of upcycled wood, filled with marinated feta, sun dried tomatoes, pickled mushrooms and green strawberries, crostini's, smoked salmon, whipped ricotta spread, and cheeses locally sourced from local farms and food purveyors.* After grabbing a snack, you move from room to room, greeted by a variety of unique and intricate pieces.

Playing Seriously at the Hunterdon Art Museum

The Pattern & Decoration (P&D) movement emerged in the 1970s as an "irreverent upstart movement," to borrow the words of New York Times art critic Roberta Smith. It offered an alternative "to the general manliness of modernism," and elevated women's work. It looked to decorative traditions across the world, to surfaces like textiles, to wallpaper, manuscript illuminations, mosaics, glassware, embroideries, and architectural flourishes, writes Tess Thakara at Artsy.net.
