Arts Guild NJ Presents “Abstract Lives” Exhibit

RAHWAY — Arts Guild New Jersey presents Abstract Lives, curated by Virginia Fabbri Butera Ph.D. featuring the work of ten contemporary artists. The exhibition opens on Sept. 8 and runs through Oct. 3. A free, public reception will be held on Sunday, Sept. 8, 1-4 p.m., at Arts Guild New Jersey, 1670 Irving Street, Rahway. Gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays, 1-4 p.m., and during regular office hours on Mondays through Thursdays, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. and Fridays, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. The exhibition is wheelchair accessible.

This Fall, Arts Guild New Jersey is presenting three exhibits curated by three independent curators. The set of the three exhibitions is titled the Triad Series. These shows will all feature the same ten pre-selected artists, who were chosen for their large range of work and/or, the fact that they have many distinct bodies of work. Selected artists include: Adel Gorgy, Eileen M. Foti, Neal Korn, Peter Jacobs, RoCa, Diane Savona, Rocco Scary, Tom Nussbaum, Frances Heinrich and Bill Westheimer.

The project aims to investigate how the artwork of the same artists might be viewed by several curators each with a distinct point of view.  The first of these exhibits is Abstract Lives, curated by Virginia Fabbri Butera Ph.D. who currently runs the Maloney Gallery at the College of Saint Elizabeth. The second show, scheduled to open in mid-October, will be organized by Donna Gustafson who is currently a curator for the Zimmerli Museum in New Brunswick. The third and final show in the Triad Series will be developed  by Jacki Cruz, the Director of Exhibits at the City Without Walls Gallery in Newark.
