METUCHEN — Two Modern Masters of visual art will participate in Metuchen’s Junebug ArtFest as guest lecturers and extend the “every-Friday-night-in-June” activity into two Thursday evenings as well.
Internationally recognized conceptual artist, sculptor and photographer Sandy Skoglund will present an overview of her work on Thursday, June 16, at 7:30 p.m. at the Old Franklin School, 491 Middlesex Avenue, Metuchen.
Jane Dickson, described as “the woman who brought celebration to the daily commute” with her mosaics of New Year’s revelers in the New York City subway, will present an overview of her work on Thursday, June 23 at 7:30 p.m., at the same location.
Both artists are at the peak of their careers and active participants in the NYC art scene, and the Metuchen art community is delighted by their participation in the event.
“When the Junebug Committee gathered last October to ‘evaluate and dream,’ we spoke about the need to take the event to the next level,” explains Linda LaStella, one of the chairpersons. “We are thrilled to be able to bring artists of this stature to our Central Jersey community.”
The Junebug Committee is able to provide these two lectures thanks to a successful fundraising campaign through the arts funding website www.kickstarter.com.
