Emanation 2019 External Event Page
Millville, New Jersey
Emanation 2019 is on display through December 31, 2019 in the Museum of American Glass at WheatonArts! Emanation 2019 is the third exhibition of contemporary art featuring new works developed and created by artists invited to utilize the resources and facilities at WheatonArts for experiment based exploration. The results are displayed with an emphasis on each artist's creative process. "The artists in this iteration of Emanation have not previously worked in glass, but are creative thinkers and problem solvers, who have embraced the opportunity to experiment in a new medium," notes Julie Courtney, curator of Emanation 2019. The artists she brought to the project each have a unique perspective and aesthetic on the integration of glass into their works, creating powerful visuals (and even sounds) relating to invisible labor, prison incarceration rates, beauty in destruction, and "cartoon violence," just to name a few. Artists participating in the exhibit are Jesse Krimes, Tristin Lowe, Martha McDonald and Laura Baird, Karyn Olivier, Richard Torchia, Allan Wexler, and Jo Yarrington. Open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is included with general admission to WheatonArts.
Included with General Admission: $10.00 Adults, $9.00 Senior Adults (62+), $7.00 Students, Children 5 and under are free.

Embroidered Stories: Hmong Fiber Arts
Millville, New Jersey
This exhibition in the Down Jersey Folklife Center at WheatonArts features paj ntaub artworks and jewelry created by Hmong master artist and teacher, Pang Xiong Sirirathasuk Sikoun. Many of Pang Xiong's paj ntaub works on display are created as "story cloths," incorporating figurative and symbolic images to provide visual narratives on a wide range of themes-folk tales and legends, depictions of Hmong family clans, nature; stories of the Hmong peoples' migrations, wars, and painful journeys from farming villages to refugee camps. Pang Xiong's visual representations of the Hmong oral history, folklore and life experiences are both educational and inspiring. Open October 4 through December 31, 2019, Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. /////// The "Embroidered Stories: Hmong Fiber Arts" exhibit is part of the Down Jersey Folklife Center's "Near and Far: Arts and Cultures of East Asia" project, presented in partnership with Cumberland County Cultural and Heritage Commission and Atlantic County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.

When Water Dreams - Art Exhibition External Event Page
Sausalito, California
Canadian artist/photographer Bill Peters presents large-scale color images of the salt ponds, sloughs and wetlands of San Francisco Bay shot from a helicopter from 2009 through July of this year. The shoreline of San Francisco Bay is a crucible where the human forces that work on land and water intersect with nature. Infused with the graphic power and emotional sensibilities of formalist abstract art and color field painting, Peters' work surprises: at first glance it appears fully abstract, indistinguishable from paintings. On closer inspection, however, roads, boats, birds, vehicles and vegetation reveal the work as stunning photographs of San Francisco Bay landscapes and waterscapes. Peters is an international visual artist who has had over 30 exhibitions in US and Canadian museums and galleries. His work is included in the Province of Alberta's collection. //// Reception: Sat, Nov 23, 1pm-3pm and Art Talk starts 1:30pm
Free
