B Homes Peter Abrams and Graham Apgar

October 11 - September 28

Graves Terrace

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.

COMMUNICATION BETWEEN FORMS

My work has been evolving recently to include more layers, more color and more depth. I’ve been continuing the push to step away from the usual process, which was: draw a shape and fill in the shape. Instead, I’ve been creating organic forms, activating the negative spaces, layering and mixing paints all while continuing to think as if the forms were communicating with each other. For a long time I was compelled to create very crisp and clean lines in my work. The “graphic designer”

Nature Restores

When working in plein air I try to convey the sense of peace that I feel when working outside, surrounded by the light that I attempt to capture. Interacting with nature is an invigorating force and landscape painting is a timeless art form that reflects our past, and our future. The changing seasons of New Jersey echo the rhythms of our lives. The interplay between a tree and the sky or light and shadow represent the essence of our natural world that should be cherished.
