Please join us in-person at Prallsville Mills as Jane Adriance presents Contrast, Contradiction and Clarity
Thursday, November 18 at 7:00 p.m.
At the age of ten, Jane Adriance dreamed of being an artist; more than eight decades later she continues to make that dream come true. She will present her works in watercolor, oils and mixed media. “The lens of my presentation will focus on dynamic compositions from different points of view. By painting contrasts, and sometimes contradictory expressions, my work becomes richer, deeper and clearer. Color is my language.”
Ms. Adriance received Associate and Bachelor’s degrees in fine and applied arts, but her education did not stop there. She studied art appreciation for four years at the Barnes Foundation in Marion Pennsylvania and traveled near and far to attend workshops. From Deer Isle in Maine to Paris, Morocco and Turkey, Jane traveled to different landscapes, and other cultures colored her artistic perception. She has exhibited widely in New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York City, winning awards for her work.
Jane is currently an elected member of the New Jersey Watercolor Society and a Signature member of the Garden State Watercolor Society. Ms. Adriance will be exhibiting at the Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville in November and will have a solo exhibition at the Arts Council of Princeton in February of 2022.

Meetings are held in the stone grist mill at Prallsville Mills at 33 Risler Street, Route 29, Stockton, New Jersey. Artsbridge requests that attendees be vaccinated and wear a mask while inside the mill.
