Nassau Hall to Hoagie Haven: Princeton Paintings by James McPhillips

“Having worked for McCarter Theatre, I gained an appreciation for Princeton’s people, architecture, university and businesses. All of which have been natural inspiration for my paintings and even my graphic work like the Prince-TON art. After McCarter, I partnered with jane shop (7 Spring St.) to showcase my Princeton work and beyond (currently a Paris series). I am grateful, honored and thrilled that Arts Council of Princeton and The Princeton Public Library asked me to share these pieces for the launch of the second floor renovation.”

Workshop: Sketchbook Collaborations 101

- $60

Sketchbook Collaborations 101 is an exclusive workshop taught by the ACP’s Spring 2017 Anne Reeves Artists-in-Residence Fiona Chinkan and Maria Doering.

In this workshop, Fiona and Maria will dive deep into the idea of sketchbook sharing with another artist and introduce the class to different methods of sketchbook collaboration. You will also explore how this method works when artist teams live close together versus living long distances from one another. Participants are paired up to start working together in small folio sketchbooks while expressing their own ideas and reacting to each other’s styles. This workshop is for individuals as well as students who would like to take a workshop with their art buddies.
