B Homes Peter Abrams and Graham Apgar
October 11 - September 28
The B Home Project is a living arts installation based on sustainable building practices. The B Home is the vision of a unique combination of artist and engineer, Pete Abrams and Graham Apgar. B Homes are low-cost shelters with applications ranging from disaster relief to ecotourism to alternative dwellings for under-served populations. As their design continues to evolve, they can also be playful, whimsical and fun backyard escapes ranging in size from single cells to multi-cellular units. The structures are built from shipping pallets and other post-industrial and natural materials. Read the catalog for more information or visit www.thebhome.com.
Join us on Monday, September 28 at 5:30pm to celebrate the B-Homes exhibition coming to an end, located on the Graves Terrace at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street, Princeton NJ. The B-Homes will be available for purchase via silent auction.

Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces
The Arts Council of Princeton presents Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces, a dual exhibition by photographer Ricardo Barros & sculptor Austin Wright. This installation addresses volume– the space a substance occupies – in various ways through light, shadow, and form. “You could say we’re focusing on the same subject, but seeing it through different lenses,” says Princeton resident photographer Barros. “Or,” sculptor Wright adds, “We’re both pursuing a sculptural vision. Mine results in a three-dimensional sculpture. Ricardo works with similar forms to produce a two-dimensional …
Ceramics by Jenyfer Guethe
Visit the Arts Council of Princeton’s Solley Lobby Gallery to view work by ceramic artist Jenyfer Guethe. My work with clay combines functional pottery with free flowing sculptural forms. Since I was young I’ve been fascinated with how nature seems to have an overall “flow”, similar to how ocean waves are constantly changing the shoreline with each ebb and flow of the tide. This can leave a subtle soft touch on the sand when a gentle wave has pulled away, or a more pronounced sharper …
WILD: Wildlife Paintings and Drawings
The Arts Council of Princeton of Princeton is pleased to present an exhibition of wildlife related artworks by Charles David Viera in support of the Wildlife Painting and Drawing class offered for adults. Horses, wolves, birds, and other animals are featured in these paintings and drawings for the aesthetic value and emotional impact that they inspire in this artist and longtime ACP instructor. The public is invited to join us for the exhibition opening, enjoy the exhibition, and register for the accompanying studio class.
The Concussion Diaries
“I suffered a serious concussion in April 2017. Alice fell down a rabbit hole; I just fell on the floor. The doctors forbade ‘reading, screens of any sort, and complex thinking.’ For the first four months I couldn’t even listen to music. I wondered if I might go bonkers – and then I wondered if that was complex thinking. Without the capacity for the usual distractions, I found myself in a quiet world of color and composition. In some ways my sensory experience was stripped …
The Periodic Table of Elements
“My work has always been inspired, to one degree or another, by my interest and attention to the Sciences. This new body of work, THE PERIODIC TABLE OF ELEMENTS, gets to the essence of life and ecosystems by focusing on the natural “elements” themselves which make everything in the natural and synthetic worlds possible. Congruent with this are my own principle interests with surface and materiality as each work is an experiment with materials and texture – mixing a variety of gels and other additives …
