One of my goals, each year, is to display as much artwork as possible outside of our school. Throughout the Winter, 11 pieces of artwork will be on display in the lobby of the Victoria Theater at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center, Newark, NJ. This exhibit is sponsored by the Art Educators of New Jersey, 30 pieces will be exhibited in all. All the artwork is framed under glass and lit in true gallery style. It is quite an honor to have work exhibited in this exhibit, art educators from around the state of New Jersey submit work.
The Artist's Reception is Saturday, December 17, 2011 from 11:00 - 12:00, then starting at noon there will be an afternoon of free Kwanzaa activities at NJPAC's Kwanzaa Celebration!
This event runs from 12:00 pm-5:00 pm, and includes hands-on workshops (for adults and children) in African dance and music, storytelling, Capoeira, drumming and more. These workshops give families the opportunity to learn more about the Kwanzaa holiday and the African Diaspora.
There will also be a Children's Book Fair, an Arts and Crafts Village featuring face painting, hands-on activities such as spirit masks, sekere crafting, Kwanzaa wish scrolls, and more.
Activities take place at NJPAC and next door at the Center for Arts Education, 24 Rector Street, Newark, New Jersey. Click here for more information.
If you are going to NJPAC during this holiday season please make sure to stop by and enjoy the exhibit! All the artwork from this exhibit can been viewed in the AENJ Artsonia Gallery.
