NJ United States + Google Map

For nearly a year now, the Covid-19 virus has invaded our lives in devastating ways that we could have never before imagined. Every aspect of our existence has changed. Destitution, including hunger, unemployment and homelessness has shattered the future for many, and our perspective of life and death has forever been altered. For this juried exhibition we’re asking artists to look upon this period of time and create reflective imagery through the process of hand drawing an image onto a chosen surface. The surface can be paper, but may also include any other surface that works. Drawing implements can range from pencils, pens, and charcoal to brushes, crayons and markers to 3 dimensional materials such as string, as well as a stylus or touch screen and any other tool that can translate the drawing successfully onto the chosen surface. Eligibility 1. Exhibition is open to residents 18 years or older, living in NY, NJ and PA. 2. All media must be original and by the artist. 3. We prefer that work be hand delivered to the gallery, but will accept pre-paid shipment of work preferably through the Post Office with return packaging to and from the gallery 4 Art work

December 20, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 4:30 pm

In the fall of 1918, women studied for the first time at two of America’s colonial colleges.

This online program includes a discussion of the struggles and triumphs of the first semesters of women’s education at Rutgers and William & Mary, a living-history appearance from “Mabel Smith Douglass” reflecting on that first semester and her own infection with the Spanish Flu, and a festive introduction to the Yule Log traditions at both colleges.
