Upcoming Events

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Connections: Pastels by Linda Schwartz

Jumbo Gumballs

On view: September 5-28, 2017

Warren resident Linda Schwartz has been interested in drawing since childhood and took photography, pottery and sculpture classes in college. She has studied portraiture and painting with Enrique Flores-Galbis, Andrea Gianchiglia and Anne Kullaf at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey in Summit and the Center for Contemporary Art in Bedminster. Her work has been shown in juried and solo shows in New Jersey.

“Capturing people, places and objects that evoke emotion and connect us – to the past, to memories, to imagination, to joy, to childhood – is my motivation. Color, shape, light and reflections are the themes that I use to explore those connections,” says Ms. Schwartz, “​The rich color, immediacy and texture created with pastels offer the ideal medium to bring these themes to life. I use these themes to explore and express our connection to people, places and objects.”

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

A Small Thing But My Own: Photographs by Jim DelGiudice

Not One More Step!

On view: October 3-30, 2017
Artist’s Reception: Sunday, October 8, 2:00-4:00 pm

A lifetime New Jersey resident, exhibitor Jim DelGiudice picked up a camera for the first time in 1979 and has been documenting the local scene ever since. This show consists of a set of mostly unexhibited and unpublished pictures with surprising details. At once ironic and sentimental in nature, they’ve provided Mr. DelGiudice, a resident of Basking Ridge, with his most joy over the years as a visual artist. Each image comes with a back story, and it’s hoped that the viewer will enjoy the thought process (or sometimes lack of it!) that went into their creation.


10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

All That Jazz: Paintings by Sam Bleecker

Phantom of the Opera

On view: November 1-30, 2017

Samuel E. Bleecker was trained as a physicist and molecular biophysicist at Yale University. After graduation, he worked at Bell Labs. “Numbers and their connection to our understanding of the universe and our lives within it drives one aspect of my art,” he says, “[I work] to somehow link the assemblage of numbers and their geometric patterns into a larger, more aesthetic whole.” His abstract paintings, motivated by mathematics, physics and biological themes, have been exhibited at at galleries around New Jersey.
