Artsbridge Distinguished Artist Series Presents Jane Adriance
“THE WEIGHT OF ABSENCE”: Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artist Series event on November 18 at 7 p.m. at Prallsville Mills in Stockton will feature artist Jane Adriance discussing “Contract, Contradiction, and Clarity.”
At the age of 10, Jane Adriance dreamed of being an artist; more than eight decades later she continues to make that dream come true. She will present her work in watercolor, oils and mixed media as Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artist on Thursday, November 18, at 7 p.m. at Prallsville Mills, 33 Risler Street in Stockton. The presentation is entitled “Jane Adriance: Contrast, Contradiction, and Clarity.”
“The lens of my presentation will focus on dynamic compositions from different points of view,” said Adriance. “By painting contrasts, and sometimes contradictory expressions, my work becomes richer, deeper and clearer. Color is my language.”
Adriance received associate and bachelor’s degrees in fine and applied arts, but her education did not stop there. She studied art appreciation for four years at the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pa., and traveled near and far to attend workshops. From Deer Isle in Maine to Paris, Morocco, and Turkey, Adriance traveled to different landscapes, and other cultures colored her artistic perception. She has exhibited widely in New Jersey, Philadelphia, and New York City, winning awards for her work.
She is currently an elected member of the New Jersey Watercolor Society and a Signature member of the Garden State Watercolor Society. Adriance is exhibiting at the Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville through the end of November, and will have a solo exhibition at the Arts Council of Princeton in February of 2022.
