I am really proud of the hard work my students have put into the exhibition we are having of paintings and pastels at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey! The show is on display now through July 1, and on Friday, May 11, there will be a reception from 6 to 8 pm.
Everyone put forth their best effort to make this exhibit a success! Each artist who participated created a new piece specifically for the show. There are 44 artists exhibiting, media includes oil, acrylic, pastel and mixed media. The subjects and styles are incredibly diverse, but the show holds together very well due to the standardized format of a 12×12 square for paintings or a 16×16 in. framed format for the pastels.
I hope you can make it to the art center to see the exhibit live and meet some of the artists. There are 3 other exhibits opening that night at the center, so it should be a fun and lively evening. Hope to see you there!
