Distinguished Artist Series

Please Zoom with us for Mary Ann McKay presenting “Art on Child Laborers of the American Industrial Age.”

Thursday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m.

Mary Ann McKay will introduce her ongoing art series, “Silent Voices,” that focuses on the plight of coal mine children around the turn of the 20th century. She will present her artistic process of working with old photographs taken of young coal miners to create her own artistic pieces. She uses images from around 1911 by Lewis Wickes Hine, a teacher and photographer for the National Child Labor Committee. He documented child labor in American industry to aid the lobbying efforts to end the practice. McKay grew up in Pennsylvania as the granddaughter of a coal miner, so these images are a part of her family history.

McKay’s new series, “Children of Glass” is a body of work focusing on the plight of working-class children of the T.C. Wheaton Glass Factory and nearby Bridgeton and Woodbury factories of New Jersey. These children came from many cultural backgrounds and were as young as twelve years old. New Jersey was an important part of the American Glass industry.

Mary Ann McKay received her art education at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and The Hussian College of Art in Philadelphia, PA. After many years as a successful graphic designer, she now devotes her time creating interdisciplinary art in her studio in Keyport, NJ. Mary Ann’s work has been shown in galleries throughout New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. For more information, visit her website at www.maryannmckay.com

Distinguished Artist Series

Please Zoom with us for Adriana Groza, presenting “A Fluid Art Experience, Art with Fluid Acrylics.”

Thursday, March 18 at 7:00 p.m.

Adriana Groza’s art is abstract and created using fluid acrylics, manipulated directly on the canvas. She applies her foundation color and then allows her feelings and imagination to wander free with the fluid pigments, without dominating or restricting. Several unconventional instruments and techniques are used to move the paint around without a brush.

Adriana’s demonstration will show the surprising effects of working with fluid acrylics. She will share how her artistic process has been transformative and cultivated her vision.

“Art is a means for my self-healing and a way to reach into an understanding of time and matter. I am unlocked to bring to light what arises on the canvas before me. In that sense, I am as much a spectator as a creator as my paintings take shape. The realization of physical grounding in a space that has been here before me and will continue to live on after I am gone, allows me to center myself in living precisely within that moment, and living it in its entirety. My best works are active and imply movement across the space, or they emerge from, or descend into space for the observer.”

Distinguished Artist Series

Please Zoom with us for Erik James Montgomery, fine-art photographer presenting “Red, White, Blue and You: Reconstruction.”

Thursday, February 18 at 7:00 p.m.

In celebration of Black History Month, Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artists Series presents fine-art photographer and educator, Erik James Montgomery, who focuses his lens on the pressing cultural and social-justice issues of our time. His online presentation will take viewers on his 30-year journey in photography and include images in his current series “Red, White, Blue, and You: Reconstruction.” These thought-provoking, visually unique and arresting photographs tackle race, racism and reconciliation from 1619 to present. “Photography is a powerful form of communication because it transcends all the barriers of language. Through my art, I am able to speak to anyone in the world, about their world, in order to change the world.”

Growing up in the city of East Orange, New Jersey, where many of his “peers fell into the traps of crime, drugs, self-hate, and ultimately, death,” Mr. Montgomery was determined not to become a statistic but a success, delving into various genres of art including illustration, dance, graffiti and eventually photography. At first self-taught, Erik went on to study at the Academy of Art University and Columbia University.

Now he teaches others and works to lift-up the community through the Erik James Montgomery Foundation, the non-profit organization he founded in 2011. Teaching professional photography to at-risk youth, his students learn the fundamentals of the craft and discover a pathway to entrepreneurship. In addition, the foundation creates public works of art for under-served neighborhoods, transforming blight into beauty. Currently Erik’s working on a series for “A New View Camden,” a public arts project sponsored by the Bloomberg Philanthropies.

As owner and instructor at EJM Photography located in southwest New Jersey, Erik creates personalized portraits, inspirational images, and provides photographic coverage for special events. His photography has been exhibited in galleries, universities and at community art events for decades. Currently working on PSA’s targeted at social issues, a photographic version of the Bible, and on several exhibitions, Erik hopes his photography and community service will leave a positive impact for generations to come.

Distinguished Artist Series

Please Zoom with us for Harry Boardman, artist and gallery owner presenting “So Much to Paint, So Little Time.”

Thursday, January 21 at 7:00 p.m.

Welcome to a new year and hopefully a better year ahead!

We welcome Harry Boardman, an artist and gallery owner of Exhibit B Gallery in Souderton, Pa. He lives and works in a former cigar factory with his wife Heather, a glass and jewelry artist, and his dog. They renovated the building from a rough dirty shell and transformed it into a warm inviting space and filled it with art.

 

Most of Harry’s work is done in oil pastels: messy, rich, and a unique blend of drawing & painting. He also paints in oils and draws in ink. Oil pastels are a perfect choice for him, as they are like a lush, waxy crayon allowing him to create art that looks and feels like a painting, but is applied like a drawing. Many people have heard of oil pastels but may not know how they are used to create a finish. He creates art that includes skies, trees, rolling fields, barns, and industrial sites. Harry likes to focus on the everyday scene that might go over-looked, but is totally worth acknowledging as a painting.

This presentation will include a discussion of his technique, a look at some of his paintings, and a demonstration. The program will end with a virtual tour of his studio and gallery, in the 1901 cigar factory. Q&A will conclude his presentation. To learn more about Harry, visit his web site, www.harryboardman.com

NOTE: Participants will be muted during the presentation, but the speaker may take selected questions from the audience after the presentation, as time allows.

Please join us for our Distinguished Artists Series featuring award-winning Elizabeth Robbins of Utah, Painting Still Life With Oils, a Demonstration

Thursday, November 19, 2020, 7:00 p.m.

One profound outcome of Zoom is that we can connect with nationally recognized artists who live afar. We are therefore excited to bring you a virtual presentation with Western painter, Elizabeth Robbins.

Frost may have taken out the flowers, but they’ll be in full bloom via Zoom on November 19, when Elizabeth Robbins is guest speaker for our Distinguished Artists Series. A National Oil Painters of America 2020 Still Life Award of Excellence winner, Elizabeth will demonstrate her painting technique and show some of her award-winning masterpieces. Raised in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, she now lives and works in Ogden. She is best known for her classically beautiful floral Still Life but also enjoys painting portraits and capturing the soul of a person.

Elizabeth’s love of flowers began in childhood, thanks to her Grandmother helping her identify various wildflowers at their cabin above Oakley, Utah. “I still have the book that I pressed and categorized wildflowers with my grandmother.” Robbins also grows all the flowers that she lovingly paints. Over 100 roses, peonies, lilies, sunflowers and many other flowers are just a step away from her 600 square feet studio where she paints. She is co-owner of Bella Muse Gallery in Ogden, Utah, and owns Bella Muse Productions where she films and produces instructional painting videos and offers painting scholarships to help inspire other artists along their journey. She has won numerous awards including “Best Still Life” and “Best of Show” at the National Oil and Acrylic Painter’s Exhibit and the “Tuffy Berg Award” at the 2008 CM Russell auction. She is represented by several galleries. She also co-owns “Inspired to Paint” with her friend Shanna Kunz, which is an online art membership course.

Her work is in private collections throughout the United States and in the Ella Dunnegan Gallery of Art in Bolivar, Missouri. To learn more about Elizabeth and to see her work, visit her website, www.robbinsfineart.com Also see, Inspired to Paint which offers a supply list and a video about her supplies, https://inspiredtopaint.com/elizabeth-robbins-bio/

Gary Saretzky: Nineteenth-Century New Jersey Photographers: Hunterdon County

Thursday, October 15, 2020, 7 p.m.
Online via Zoom

On October 15, Artsbridge gives the community an opportunity to go back in time to see what life looked like in Hunterdon County in the nineteenth century. Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artist Series speaker will be Gary D. Saretzky, archivist and photographer. Of the approximately 3,000 different photographers who were active in New Jersey before 1900, more than 80 lived or worked in Hunterdon County, most of them in Flemington, Lambertville, Clinton, and Frenchtown. In his slide lecture, Gary D. Saretzky will profile these pioneers, including Gideon C. Angle, Frank Z. Fritz, and John and Mary Sunderlin. These photographers documented the people and places of their times. In addition, their individual histories provide insight into social conditions of their era. Mr. Saretzky’s presentation will begin at 7 p.m. on October 15 in a Zoom live-cast that everyone can enjoy safely from the comfort of home. Gary D. Saretzky, archivist and photographer, worked as an archivist for more than fifty years at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, Educational Testing Service, and the Monmouth County Archives. Saretzky taught the history of photography at Mercer County Community College, 1977-2012, and served as coordinator of the Public History Internship Program for the Rutgers University History Department, 1994-2016. He has published more than 100 articles and reviews on the history of photography, photographic conservation, and other topics, including “Nineteenth-Century New Jersey Photographers,” in the journal, New Jersey History, Fall/Winter 2004. In 2012, he received the Maureen Ogden Award for Lifetime Achievement in New Jersey History at the New Jersey History Issues Conference.

Distinguished Artist Series

Join us on September 17 at 7:00 p.m. online via ZOOM for our Distinguished Artist Series: Henry Rowan, award-winning photographer and director of the Pennsylvania Center for Photography

We are excited to invite you to join Artsbridge’s first virtual presentation with Henry Rowan, live streamed on Zoom. You do not need to create a Zoom account, but you need a device to join in, such as a computer, smart phone, or landline phone. You can view it in your browser on your computer or download the ZOOM app to your phone.

If you have questions, please contact Therese at thalscheid@gmail.com

Henry Rowan presents: Down the rabbit hole, photographing non-existent images

The cellphone camera has exponentially increased image creation. Is everyone a photographer now? Is photography still an art form?

Questions like these will create a stimulating evening when Henry presents via Zoom live-cast so everyone can enjoy it safely from the comfort of home. Rowan’s talk will tackle thorny questions about the nature of photography as art in the digital age. “I’m interested in the very real difference between “taking pictures” and creating photographs that reflect the perceived essence of the image as envisioned by the photographer,” says Rowan, a Doylestown, Pennsylvania resident and photographer. Rowan’s subject matter is eclectic, ranging from portraits for personal and professional use to unique digital images that are works of art. He heads the Pennsylvania Center for Photography in Doylestown, through which he lectures and offers workshops.

Participants will be muted during the presentation, but the speaker will take selected questions from the audience after his presentation, as time allows.

Distinguished Artist Series

Mira DeMartino: “Empowerment Through Artfirmations”

Thursday, February 20, 2020, 7 p.m. – Prallsville Mills, Stockton NJ

Warrior Spirit sculpture by Mira DeMartino

Sculptor Mira DeMartino will present “Empowerment Through Artfirmations,” at Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artist Series this month. A decade ago, Mira developed her own technique of sculpting calling it AlumixArt™ mixed media–consisting mostly of aluminum. She uses this unique medium to explore the area of modern spirituality. Her goal is to challenge viewers to connect with their potential of self-empowerment through art. “I believe in self-empowerment. I believe that what we see around us influences our mental attitude. I create sculptures as a tool for self-empowerment, and I call them “Artfirmations.” says DeMartino. Join Artsbridge for Mira’s presentation of her spirited sculptures at 7 p.m. on February 20 at the Prallsville Mills, 33 Risler St., Stockton, N.J.

Born in Gdansk, Poland, now living in Pennington NJ, Mira has a Masters degree in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland and an MBA from University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland. Her work is housed in many private collections locally and around the world.

In not understanding history we are destined to repeat it and this theme runs through her recent paintings that compliment her published memoir; “The Ignorance of Bliss: An American Kid in Saigon.” Growing up as a ten-year-old in Saigon, Vietnam, in the early 60’s with her military family, she has painted on canvas images that still linger with her, complementing the stories she has included in her period specific book.

Her talk will focus on ‘Art as Storytelling.’ Visual images are catalysts for the written word and these paintings give the viewer clear access to a time and a place called Vietnam in the early years before the on-going conflict catapulted the United States into chaos. Every culture has its own stories or narratives as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation, or instilling moral values. Sandy Hanna’s stories and paintings strive to do all of the above.

Having participated in art shows internationally, her work was recently exhibited as part of the Hydra School Project 20 th Year Anniversary in Greece, displayed in the Museum of Hydra. Her undergraduate studies were at the California Institute of the Arts and her Masters work was at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in the ‘Biology of Cognition.’

Karen Titus Smith: Her Work and Artistic Journey
Thursday, November 21, 2019, 7 p.m.
Prallsville Mills, Stockton NJ

Karen Titus Smith will be Artsbridge’s “Distinguished Artist” when their series continues at 7 pm on Nov. 21, at the Prallsville Mills, 33 Risler St., Stockton NJ. An artist and creative force at a New York design firm, Ms. Smith’s artwork graces the walls of exclusive hotels throughout America, including the presidential suites at the Willard and Watergate Hotels in Washington, DC, and the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. Her commissioned murals are largely scenic pieces that create indoor environments. She uses and teaches the old masters process and primavera techniques. Her demonstration at the Mill will share an old master technique of underpainting and glazing.

A career spanning three decades, the artist’s vast experiences have ranged from sign painting to theater drops, still life to abstract.

Born in Narbeth, PA, Karen earned a BFA from Moore College of Art, and continued her studies at The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and Tyler School of Art. Since 1978, her home and studio are in Pemberton NJ, where she paints and teaches in both oil and acrylics.
