RAHWAY — From March 24, through April 18, Arts Guild New Jersey presents The Other America, a group art exhibit curated by Ellen Denuto, a well-known photographer in the metro area. The exhibit will open with a free public reception on March 24, from 1-4 p.m. at Arts Guild New Jersey, located at 1670 Irving Street. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 p.m., and during regular office hours on Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. The exhibit is wheelchair accessible.
The 13 exhibiting artists are: Ellen Denuto, Frank Aiello, Bill Blanchard, Donna Compton, Thomas Franciso, Carmine Galasso, Allan Hunter Shoemake, Willie Cole, Dan Fenelon, James Kearns, Bob Richardson, Joseph G. Sabatino and Gerald Slota. These artists are well known in their field of photography and or fine art.
Each photographer was selected for their insight and the integrity of their work, as well as their passion for their chosen subject. The disparity in the perception and truth of what “America” is becomes more evident as we unquestioningly go through our days buying into what is presented as the American Dream. The hidden hungry, homeless, handicapped are our neighbors- yet we turn a blind eye on this America. Their isolation and disconnection, lack of resources and respect leaves them with little hope for the future. In spite of these challenges, they continue living proudly or in quiet desperation.
