This early exposure, more than twenty years ago, helped me see wool, and other soft materials, as a medium for rigorous artistic exploration. The submissions for this exhibition presented many wonderful uses of felt. The first time through the entries I looked at everything and then took a long break—returning the next day. At that point, I selected the work that had stayed with me from the previous day. The next review was more difficult. I had to eliminate several really good works

Misogyny Papers/Apology: Victor Davson

NJ

“My sensibility as an artist is shaped by my early childhood in Guyana and by the anti-colonial struggle for independence in the 1960s….Misogyny Papers/Apology draws on this spirit of resistance and on a wellspring of socially engaged art. It is my attempt to bring into relief the issues of gender bias, political violence and discrimination against women. In creating a body of work that confronts the dehumanization of women I also confront a system that dehumanizes me as a man who is Black.” — Victor Davson Click Here to Read Victor Davson’s Complete Artist Statement Victor Davson has exhibited widely throughout the northeast United States and in Great Britain, France, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. His work is in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Fine Arts, Havana, Cuba, National Collection of Fine Arts, Guyana, Newark Museum of Art, Montclair Art Museum, New Jersey State Museum, Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, and Morris Museum. Fellowships and awards include a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, a Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper Fellowship, three New Jersey State Council on the Arts Fellowship Awards. Davson was born in Georgetown, the Capitol of what was then British Guiana. He received a BFA degree from Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, New York and cofounded

IRISH SEISIUN (SESSION)

NJ

It is the second Thursday of the month which means - we are proud to host another traditional Irish Seisiun with lead musicians Nathan Bishop and Judy Minot. What is an Irish Seisiun? Unlike a performance, the musicians at a seisiun are playing for enjoyment - as much for each other as for anyone who may come to listen. There may be a core group of players, and others who drop in now and then. In fact, we never know who will show up, or what instruments they may play. All completely acoustic and unamplified bringing the barn naturally to life! Usually one person will start a tune, and those who know it join in. We play it until we feel like stopping, or we switch tunes. The origin and spirit of this music is in playing for dancers, and if Irish dancers drop by to this seisiun, they will be welcome too! Feel free to make requests if you know an Irish tune. To this group of musicians, virtuosity is less valued than the collective effort. At Flounder Brewing we love to bring amazing musicians and unique musical experiences to the Barn, but we do want to remain cover

The Irish Tenors

NJ

See the beloved group The Irish Tenors live in a Christmas concert with a full orchestra! The evening will feature holiday favorites such as "I’ll Be Home for Christmas," "Hark the Herald Angels Sing," "Winter Wonderland," "White Christmas," and more. Other songs in the program include "Danny Boy," "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling," "Toorah Loorah," and all the classic Irish songs for which they are known. The Irish Tenors have been the acknowledged Celtic music kings since they burst upon the scene during a 1998 special. With 10 best-selling CDs to their credit, they share company with the likes of The Three Tenors and Andrea Bocelli as the biggest money makers PBS has presented. The Irish Tenors rekindled the love of all things Irish in America, and opened the door for countless Irish music groups to hit the United States. The Irish Tenors have performed all over the world, including the best venues in America, from Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, and Carnegie Hall to The Hollywood Bowl in California—they have blazed a trail from coast to coast stopping in nearly every city in between; thrilling audiences at every single stop with their enchanting Irish repertoire, sweeping secular
