The Mercerville artist also has a studio at Grounds For Sculpture.
Twenty years after her first solo exhibition in the J&J Artists Series Gallery, “Shallows: Recent Paintings by Léni Paquet-Morante,” on view November 11 through December 20 at the New Jersey Artists Series Gallery at Johnson & Johnson Corporate Headquarters in New Brunswick, offers a series of large format paintings inspired by tidal flats, flood plains, and estuaries.
Receptions are scheduled for December 6 and 18, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
The Mercerville artist has traveled extensively in the past year, having left her full-time job a year ago to be a full-time painter. She says her residency at the Chateau d’Orquevaux in the Ardienne region of France last spring offered both respite and artistic revelation. Recent trips to the Bay of Fundy, Cape Cod, and Mount Desert Island provided a new perspective on water in the landscape, a long running interest and theme in both her sculpture and paintings.
Paquet-Morante’s studio is within the Motor Exhibit Building on The Grounds For Sculpture. Visit www.lenimorante.com.
The Johnson & Johnson Gallery is located at 1 Johnson & Johnson Plaza, New Brunswick. The gallery is open to the public Monday through Friday by appointment only. To schedule a visit, call the Corporate Art Program at (732) 524-6957 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
