Paintings from the Garden State Students of Charles David Viera

September 7 - September 28

The Arts Council of Princeton presents an exhibition of landscape paintings created by students in classes offered by the Arts Council and Readington Parks and Recreation and instructed by artist Charles David Viera.


Paintings from the Garden State  will be on display in the lower-level gallery from September 7 – 28, with an Opening Reception on September 7 from 1-3pm, coinciding with the ACP Fall Open House.

“The landscape of NJ, from the beautiful shoreline to the spacious farmlands, has been a wonderful inspiration to artists and is often overlooked when the conversation turns to the beauty of the northeast,” states Viera. “Working primarily from vistas in Hunterdon and Mercer Counties, the artwork in this exhibition will remind us why New Jersey was dubbed the Garden State.”

LUMINOUS MATTER

My work LUMINOUS MATTER channels the forces of fluid dynamics. I achieve this otherworldly look in my artwork by combining pigments, fluids, and additives to produce a physical reaction. Layering different densities of paint leads to the formation of cellular structures that echo natural processes. Some of my results are comparable to phenomena that can be observed in astronomy, such as the Rayleigh-Taylor instability seen in The Crab Nebula. To create my paintings, I myself mimic the forces of nature by using multiple types of
