West Windsor Arts Presents “Yesterday Today Tomorrow”
“REFLECTIONS IN AN AUTUMN POND”: This work by Wendy Wilson is featured in “Member Show: Yesterday Today Tomorrow,” on view at West Windsor Arts through June 3. An opening reception is on Friday, March 31 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Life revolves around change, the passage of time, and hope. Change is a constant that occurs everywhere and has so throughout time. Perhaps most importantly, time and change result in something new, different, and beautiful, and often with hope for the future. For this exhibition, West Windsor Arts invited their member artists to explore and express the idea of change and the passage of time as they relate to personal experiences or observations in the springtime art exhibition, “Yesterday Today Tomorrow.” The art is on view at West Windsor Arts through June 3 during operating hours or by appointment. The juror was Katie Truk, a New Jersey-based artist and teaching artist. Awards for Best in Show, Best Use of Medium and Exhibition Committee Choice will be announced at the opening reception on Friday, March 31 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
Truk creates colorful and enchanting three-dimensional work with pantyhose encased in a wire structure using a sewing needle and thread to bind the swirling forms. Her pieces are a marriage of sensual malleability of pantyhose and the rigidity of wire where internal conversation and motion are induced within the static confine of her sculptures. Truk’s work has been featured in over 100 solo and group shows.
Highlights of the many works in the exhibition include Moment by Joseph Goldfedder. The work is done in watercolor pens and reflects Goldfedder’s freestyle use of mark making and color. Tomorrow is Today’s Dream is a mixed media piece by Neelam Padte. Padte’s geometric paintings start with pencil sketches, then use computer skills to create multiple digital representations before painting the final composition on canvas.
Wendy Wilson dyes silk and cotton fabric to print her digital creations. Reflections in an Autumn Pond is a hand drawing printed on silk. The semi-transparent organza layered over the silk satin gives a sense of movement and dimensionality.
