This afternoon's co-sponsored event with Peter Jacobs was well-attended by members of both the WAA and CAG groups - we even drew a few new faces to this exciting event.
Peter presented off of slides, and walked us through both his art-making process and the intended communications of his work. The focus of his presentation was The Collage Journal, his carefully preserved, numbered & dated Strathmore paper pads and how he exhibits them.
If you did not have a chance to see this enlightening presentation, you can see Peter's 2012 interview with NJTV about his collage journals here:
We enjoyed seeing such a good crowd of artists, and listening to Peter tackle all your questions. A big thanks to our friends at CAG for introducing us to Peter and co-hosting this event with us - let's do it again soon!
This event marks the first time we have co-produced a monthly event with
our friends in the Contemporary Art Group (CAG). Many of us are
longtime members of both groups, but if you are not familiar with CAG,
they are a membership art community based out of the Watchung Arts
Center whose focus is on exhibitions. CAG averages 10 member exhibits
each year in a variety of venues around Northern NJ.
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW LOCATION AND DATE OF THIS EVENT, which was
previously scheduled for October 15th at the Westfield Public Library.
See the poster below for updated info:
We welcome artist Peter Jacobs to the Community Room, where he will
present slides and discuss his work and how he has built his career
around making art. Refreshments will be served!
Remember to stay in touch with us throughout the year as weather &
speaker schedules may alter some event dates. Lots to learn, see, and
