Ori of Berkeley Heights and Michael Creem of Summit as an opportunity for photographers to gather and talk about their work and for exhibition opportunities within the fine art community. The membership comes from all areas of the state and as a group they have tremendous variety in style and use a wide array of photographic techniques.

Shore/Lines: Recent Paintings by Philip Kennedy-Grant

Barrier Island

Barrier Island

Opening Reception: Sunday, February 8, 2:00 to 4:00 pm

Philip Kennedy-Grant has recently concentrated on painting abstractions in oil, acrylic, and watercolor, continuing a career marked by extensive and accomplished architectural drawings. This exhibit consists of paintings depicting land and sea and sky in idealized and imagined settings. Executed variously on canvas, board, paper, and acrylic sheet, the effect differs even as the subject is largely unchanged. Supplementing the paintings, a selection of sketchbooks, small paintings, and drawings will be exhibited in the lobby display cases. This collection, spanning thirty years, suggests the sometimes direct, often roundabout, route from idea to execution. On view: February 2-27, 2015.
