NEW BRUNSWICK—Aside from being a community center to donate whole blood and platelets, New Jersey Blood Services (NJBS), a division of the New York Blood Center (NYBC), is now host to the Gallery at New Street, which will exhibit the works of New Jersey artists and photographers.
To kick-off the opening exhibit at the gallery at 167 New Street in New Brunswick, area photographers Marilyn Espinosa and Teresa Lamicella will be the first two women show entitled “Beautiful Sights”.
Marilyn Espinosa inspirations focus on the natural beauty of her surroundings, from the vast beauty and breathtaking vistas of Yosemite National Park to capturing sunrises and sunsets at just the right moment.
Her trademark is, “Never Take a Beautiful Sight for Granted,” which was inspired by the tragedy of September 11th, in the sense that no one could ever imagine how a treasured skyline could be forever changed in such a short period of time.
Black and White photography and alternative photo processes have been Teresa Lamicella’s area of concentration for the past few years. She prefers the hands-on experience the traditional darkroom provides and says, “I focus on these techniques because of the ethereal effects and emotions that can be brought out by the developing process and by choosing the right images.”
The public is welcome to view the exhibit, as well as donate blood in the donor room which is open everyday except Thursday. For hours of the exhibit call 732-220-7000 or to make an appointment to donate blood call 1-800-933-BLOOD (2566), or visit the website at www.nybloodcenter.org
