ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University is proud to introduce new exhibitions and events for the spring, during its free Second Friday reception on Friday, April 14 from 6 – 8 p.m.  Visit the galleries to see: Transform: Works by Ellen Hanauer; A Dark Wood; Serial Graphics: Senior Project in Visual Communications; Reverse of Motion: Jacob Wolos; and theSayreville War Memorial High School & New Rochelle High School exhibitions.

Transform: Works by Ellen Hanauer,a solo exhibition on view April 10 through June 25, artist Ellen Hanauer presents an emotional recollection of her own transformation, which has taken her from the abyss to a place where potential is limitless. With fiber as the chosen medium, it brings an unthreatening quality to this provocative and sometimes uncomfortable subject. Emerging from the darkness has helped Hanauer to see possibilities that can only be discovered through the path of deconstruction and reconstruction. (Photo 1)

Serial Graphics: Senior Project in Visual Communications, an exhibition of works by Stockton University senior students,is on view fromApril 1 – 27. This exhibition represents student results from the first problem in Senior Project in Visual Communications I, in the Visual Arts Program at Stockton University under Professor Michael McGarvey. The problem: "Design a theme-based series of visual and/or word image graphic ideas. The theme could be any of your choosing, i.e.: fear, crime, romance, religion, etc. In your visual idea, explorations, and sketches, try to match a graphic approach that creates a sense of continuity with a particular point of view. After you have developed an engaging visual series, develop these concepts for a particular visual communication message or product."  (Photo 2)

Reverse of Motion: Jacob Wolos, opening on April 6 and running through the 29th, is a solo exhibition that is performative in nature, using the gallery space as an "open studio.” Wolos works with fabric dipped in plaster, as a record of his movement and influence on the fabric. When it dries, it keeps its shape and ends up defying gravity. On these pieces, he drips dyes and inks, and then brings in dancers to choreograph a performance with the pieces. Wolos is a graduating senior in the Visual Arts program at Stockton University. (Photo 3)


A Dark Wood,on view now through April 23, explores the theme of being lost in the darkness of our fears, doubts and negativity. Dante Alighieri, the 14th century Italian poet, began The Divine Comedy with a character who has lost his way in "a dark wood.” It is a metaphor not only for a crisis of faith, but a crisis of humanity. There are many aspects of the dark wood and the artists presented in this exhibition interpret the richness of the concept through a range of media and methods. A Dark Wood was originally presented by Art House Gallery and Curious Matter in Jersey City, N.J. (Photo 4)

TheSayreville War Memorial High School & New Rochelle High School exhibition opens on April 1 and runs through April 28 in the Youth Art Gallery. This exhibition features prints, paintings, drawings, tunnel books, and jewelry by the students of art teachers Katherine Mojzsis (Sayreville, NJ) and Alexandra Rutsch Brock (New Rochelle, NY.)   (Photo 5)

Michael Pascucci: Sculptureopens on May 4 and runs through July 2. Pascucci explores a figurative abstract style that emphasizes visual metaphors relating to the human condition. He believes that his sculptures are essentially romantic because they metaphorically connect to core feelings and thus enhance an awareness of self. “As a sculptor, I am inspired by the wonder and awe of how shapes and forms are assembled and integrated into the incredible well-structured and beautiful designs that we find in nature.”  (Photo 6)

The NJ Mega Meet is a photographer “meet up” and reception featuring a tour of the Atlantic City Arts District, highlighting local spots, and an exhibition of North Jersey and South Jersey photography on display at the Arts Garage throughout May.
