Anonymous Donor’s Matching Grant for West Windsor Arts
An anonymous West Windsor resident and West Windsor Arts Council supporter has agreed to match tax-deductible contributions to the Council’s annual fund up to $10,000.
All contributions must be received by June 30, 2014 and the money will be used to help pay teaching artists who live within our communities, create an internship program, and support staffing and operations.
The Arts Council has planned two events to help reach its goal: an annual Mother’s Day Plant and Herb Sale on Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and an adventure in philosophy and the science of the mind, led by West Windsor artist, Andrew Werth on Sunday May 18, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
The May 10 plant sale will feature fragrant herbs, colorful hanging baskets, and flowering bushes. All sales will support the West Windsor Arts Council Annual Fund and will be matched by the anonymous donor. Cash, checks and credit cards accepted.
Mr. Werth’s talk on May 18, is titled “An Abstraction of the Mind: Artist Talk with Andrew Werth.” He will discuss color theory and perception, meaning in abstract art, pattern formation in nature and on the computer, and how all of these things combine with his love of cognitive science, philosophy, math, and physics in the creation of his paintings. Refreshments will be provided.
Admission to Mr. Werth’s talk is free with a suggested donation of $20 accepted at the door. A donation of $100 will include an 18 x 15 digital reproduction of the artists work (while supplies last).
Mr. Werth received degrees in computer engineering and information networking from Carnegie Mellon University and has studied art at various schools in New York City including The Arts Students League, The School of Visual Arts, and The New School. His paintings have been exhibited at many tristate venues from Philadelphia through Hudson, N.Y. For more information about the artist, visit: www.andrewwerth.com.
