by Jon Sarkin, Jennifer Levine, Kenneth LewisJanuary 4, 2020 - February 15, 2020

The Arts Council of Princeton presents Inside Out…When Worlds Collide, an exhibition of works by three individuals who became artists by chance. The exhibit will be on display in the Arts Council’s Taplin Gallery, from January 4 through February 15, 2020.  Becoming an artist was not the initial intention for Jon Sarkin, Jennifer Levine, or Kenneth Lewis Sr. Through distinct circumstances, art and the need to create became the driving force in their lives. Despite receiving no formal training, these artists are consumed in the process.

Your Inner Space

by Ifat Shatzky, Mira DeMartinoOctober 12, 2019 - November 16, 2019

Opening Reception: Saturday, October 12 | 3-5pm In their artistic work, both Ifat Shatzky and Mira DeMartino explore unlimited layers of human emotions, thoughts, and associations. Their works, created in completely different mediums, evoke similar reactions of self-reflection on deep, universal emotions. Whether it’s Ifat’s landscape or Mira’s human figure, they all relate to inner space. Working in different dimensions, Ifat and Mira both choose to leave their pieces raw, unfinished, and organic. They feel that precise definition of a  form leaves the viewer passive. There is

Wonder

Wonder (noun); a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable. “I stood in front of it, observing the intricacy of the work with the wonder of a child”. “When one is invited into the house of Marilyn Keating, the studio of Eric Schultz, or the world created by The Oiseaux Sisters, wonder is the best word to describe how you feel.

Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces

by Ricardo Barros; Autin WrightMarch 23, 2019 - May 4, 2019

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

All That You Leave Behind

by Diana Weymar, Nelson HancockJanuary 5, 2019 - March 16, 2019

All That You Leave Behind, a collaboration between textile artist Diana Weymar and photographer Nelson Hancock, explores narrative and artistic interpretations of personal, everyday objects. How many of us have shopped at estate sales, driven past dilapidated houses, or visited historical sites only to find ourselves creating stories about the former owners or occupants? The urge to tell stories about what is left behind satisfies our need and desire to infuse the materiality of objects with personal meaning.   Objects are a material evidence of

Colloquy

by Anna Boothe & Nancy CohenOctober 13, 2018 - December 8, 2018

Last year, in 2017, Anna Boothe and Nancy Cohen collaborated on a series of sculptures that were shown at the Philadelphia Art Alliance; the works shown owed a lot to the thangka, a type of Tibetan Buddhist painting that represents a Buddhist deity or an image taken from the Tibetan religious imaginary.  Buddhist imagery has been a part of American thinking and making for more than two generations now, so Boothe and Cohen belong to a well-established tradition in contemporary American art. Their work, a subtle
