Pro Arts Jersey City presents "Resilient 2"

"By nature we are resilient beings; we are buoyant, elastic, and irrepressible," said Ivy Brown in a Curator Statement. "We all have scars, seen or unseen. What we do with them is what sets us apart. Artists have an outlet from which they benefit. Some artists will take you on their journeys of trials and tribulations, while others will escape entirely with no reference to their paths.  All the scars and the resilience are there in many forms. The artists in this exhibition take us on their journeys and show us their resilient nature via their visual voices."

Ivy Brown Gallery was founded in 2001 as a result of 9/11 and her commitment to opening doors in her community. The Gallery represents and exhibits contemporary art of all mediums. Dedicated to supporting emerging and established artists, Ivy Brown takes her experience from the commercial art world and brings it to the fine arts arena. The gallery also curates exhibitions throughout New York City. Ivy’s commitment to art and the critical part it plays in our humanity is the grounding force behind the gallery.

ART150 Gallery is located at 150 Bay Street in Jersey City, New Jersey. Elevator entrance is at the corner of Provost and First Streets. This location is wheelchair accessible. Hours: Saturday and Sunday 1:00pm-4:00pm.
