Beginning on October 29th, the Alfa Art Gallery will commence one of its flagship exhibitions, the 2018 New Brunswick Art Salon for Water Color and Mixed Media.
This exhibit shows the multiplicity of techniques and imagery possible with the use of watercolors. Various mixed media pieces are also featured which compliment watercolor. These works cover a variety of artistic styles and subject matter. Viewers of all interests will find works that speak to them. Artists such as Allison Maletz and Indrani Choudhury take subjects directly from daily life such as wildlife, people or landscapes and use delicate techniques and strong attention to detail to create works that resemble familiar life-scenes. Other artists like Agop Gemdijan and Christina Iacuzio create surreal works that are conjured up through their whimsical imaginations. Other featured artists such as Christina Argonish and Annie Liber use mixed media including collage and wire sculpture respectively in their artworks. Each artist in this exhibition uses watercolors to tell a story about how they experience the world.
Featured Artists: Agop Gemdjian, Allison Maletz, Christina Iacuzio, Drew Maillard, Edith Hillinger, Hana Aviv, Linda Laino, Michael Price, Hijo Nam, Christina Argonish, Eric Alexander Santoli, Indrani Choudhury, Jenna Inzetta, Mary Ladd, Melissa Cicero, Tara LeGall, Trisha Putkowski, Annie Lieber, Nicole Miritis
About the “New Brunswick Art Salon” Exhibitions:
Alfa Art Gallery possesses a great deal of reverence for the 18th and 19th century traditional art salons. During this era, art salons were the single greatest annual or biannual melding of the artistic and intellectual minds of their time. For ten years, Alfa has successfully emulated these momentous events in its own unique way by bridging highly esteemed and talented artists with the New Brunswick public. The Winter offers a salon with exhibitions dedicated to photography while Spring hosts oil and mixed media. The Summer brings a collective consisting of all themes and the Fall presents a watercolor and mixed media exhibition. Alfa is dedicated to the discovery, growth, and support of emerging and established artists. We believe that visual art is a universal form of expression which can bridge cultural gaps and provide a forum where diverse perspectives can be shared and appreciated. Established in 2008, Alfa Art Gallery has grown into New Brunswick’s Cultural Hub by exhibiting over five hundred artists and by hosting multidisciplinary community events in honor of the visual arts, music, poetry and dancing.
