Gina Petrecca has loved photography since she was a child when she became fascinated with preserving memories. She loves taking pictures of still lifes, landscapes, nature, and animals as well as special events and parties. Her inspiration comes from colors, shapes, or anything different, and it changes depending on the situations she finds herself in.

Paintings by Joanne Bodnar
On view: January 3-30, 2019
Artist’s Reception: Sunday, January 6, 2:00-4:00 pm
Joanne Smith Bodnar is a watercolor and pastel artist. Traditional and creative whimsical pieces make up most of her painting subject matter. She has been a painter and teacher for over 35 years. Design and color are strong components of her work. Music, a play on words and finding unusual objects for subject matter influence the compositions of her paintings. Many of her paintings are inspired from just one object, from which she proceeds to develop an entire painting. She has exhibited extensively in juried shows, won numerous awards and has paintings in several corporate and many private collections.

Images by the Exhibition Committee of the New Jersey Photography Forum. Impressionism is an art movement that began in the 19th century with painters Monet, Pissaro, and Degas, to name a few. Lacking in realistic detail, impressionistic images emphasize color over line and, in some cases, are soft, dreamy or have a painterly feeling. The images in this show convey the feeling of a scene, a general impression or suggestion of a scene or subject. The New Jersey Photography Forum is dedicated to furthering the interests of professional and serious photographers living or working in the New Jersey area. Over the past 24 years under the direction of Nancy Ori, the NJPF has become the largest and most recognized group of fine art exhibiting photographers in the state.
