Meet the artist at a free opening reception on Saturday, June 4, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Before moving to New Jersey, Hugo Stanley Gavidia Tolentino grew up in El Salvador, and he studied visual art at National Art Center of El Salvador (CENAR). He has participated in many collective exhibitions, including at Studio Montclair Inc, Artfront Galleries, Open Doors Newark, Bronx Pre¬ Biennale Art, Queens Museum, and Hamilton Street Gallery, among others. In his artwork Mr. Gavidia communicates knowledge through basic concepts of vitality and universal values. He also attempts to convey insight into the truth through an exaltation of the mind or the soul. Says the artist, “I can't say anything concrete about painting, what happens on the canvas is unpredictable and surprising to me. Each painting suggests something. Once I sense the suggestion, I begin to paint intuitively and when the painting is finished, the subject reveals itself. I leave it to the spectator to fix meaning. It can always be

Milk Movie Screening

June 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
Free

Join us during Pride Month for a FREE movie screening of MILK. Come early at 6:30pm to visit the booths hosted by organizations that serve the diverse LGBTQ+ community in New Jersey. MILK is the story of Harvey Milk and his struggles as an American gay activist who fought for gay rights and became California's first openly gay elected official. His life changed history, and his courage changed lives. In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into major public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights and became, before his untimely death in 1978, a hero for all Americans. Academy Award®-winner Sean Penn stars as Harvey Milk under the direction of Academy Award® nominee Gus Van Sant in the movie filmed on location in San Francisco from an original screenplay by Dustin Lance Black and produced by Academy Award®-winners Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen.
