Summer Sizzle: Paintings by Medy Bozkurtian - Last Day!

On the French Riviera

On view: July 5-29, 2017

Paintings in pastel, oil and acrylic.  Ms. Bozkurtian describes her artwork as “greatly influenced by my world travels and inspired by my love of music, people and nature. I endeavor to capture the essence and spirit of my diverse range of subjects with expressive realism and a touch of impressionism. Music is an integral part of the creative process for me.” In recent years she has been exploring and enjoying painting with watercolors, and studied this fascinating medium at the New Jersey Center for Visual Arts.

6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Egypt: The Sands of Time - Photo Exhibition

Felucca on the Nile River at Sunset

Artist’s reception and talk:
Wednesday, August 9, 6:30-8:30 pm
On view: August 1-30, 2017

This exhibition of photographs by Douglas Munch will display images of ancient and modern Egypt that Munch made in November and December, 2016 during his journey along the Nile River. The photographs will offer the viewer impressions of the simultaneously timeless and modern natures of Egypt. Photographs of both antiquities and modern life will bring forth this enduring contrast of cultures from a land which, in 450 BCE during a visit to Egypt, the Greek historian Herodotus called “The Gift of the Nile.”  Dr.Munch will give a two-part talk on Egyptian history in connection with this show. Free. Advance sign-up is requested. Click here to sign up.

Connections: Pastels by Linda Schwartz

Jumbo Gumballs

On view: September 5- 29, 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 NJ. “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 DelGuidice

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. DelGuidice, 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.
