Themes Across Cultures  
Millville, New Jersey
This exhibit in the Down Jersey Folklife Center at WheatonArts explores commonly shared topics among South Jersey cultures, such as beliefs, stories, legends, rituals, and occupational traditions. Interpreted through objects, archives, and educational programs are three major themes: 1. Becoming Someone Else - the use of masks in rituals and celebrations of various cultures; 2. Learning from a Master - featuring South Jersey artists who have participated in the Folk Art Apprenticeship Program of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts; 3. Behind the Story - exploring how legends, stories, and beliefs of these diverse communities become visualized in artworks. ///// The exhibition reflects our region's extremely diverse community and aims to bring together artists and audiences of multiple cultural backgrounds in shared artistic experiences. Extensions of the exhibit include educational activities, on-site projects, video screenings, and round table discussions. ///// Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, please check our website at www.wheatonarts.org for updates about reopening and exhibit times.

People, Place, Process: 50 Years of Glassmaking at WheatonArts  
Millville, New Jersey
Venue: Wheaton Arts and Culture Center
This exhibition in the Museum of American Glass focuses on the evolution of WheatonArts as a vital arts organization! Honoring 50 years of glassmakers at the Center, visitors will discover collaborations that artfully combine vision, artifacts that serve as muse, and the tools that connect skills across time. Looking at the history of WheatonArts as represented by the collection of the Museum of American Glass, one can see themes of creativity reflected through people, place, and process. Combined, these themes and the artworks that exemplify them, tell a story of the exploration of creativity specific to WheatonArts. ///// This exhibition displays artworks and artifacts from the collection of the Museum. Through these tangible pieces, we hope to convey the intangible qualities that make WheatonArts a creative sanctuary - the people who allow creativity to flourish, the place steeped in the glassmaking tradition, and the process of balancing skill with vision. //// Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, please check our website at www.wheatonarts.org for updates about reopening and exhibit times. Thank you.
