RAHWAY — Ever hear the expression ‘gone to pieces’? This is usually in reference to a woman who has lost her composure. In “Part & Parcel,” an exhibition at Arts Guild New Jersey, the unifying motif is a more literal portrayal of this phrase.
The exhibition, opening on March 25, includes artworks that depict physically fragmented women with a variety of implications and interpretations. Isolating parts of the body, as explained by sculptor Frances Heinrich, “works both to reference the ‘whole’ and to add inherent cultural meaning” to the representation.
The show will be held at 1670 Irving Street, in downtown Rahway, New Jersey. The exhibition opens with a free, public reception on Sunday, March 25, from 1-4 p.m., and runs through April 26. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 p.m., and during regular office hours on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The exhibition is wheelchair accessible.
For more information on the exhibition or gallery, call 732-381-7511 or visit www.partandparcelexhibition.wordpress.com, or www.agnj.org. A full-color exhibition catalog for the exhibition will be available at the Arts Guild during and following the opening reception.
