New Classicism Exhibit: January 21 – March 5 / Morristown, NJ
It’s been my good fortune over the past year to befriend brilliant art historian and prolific artist in his own right, Dr. Jose Rodeiro. I also had the honor of sharing the stage with him recently at the Mosaics of Art Exhibit.
Now it’s my pleasure to let people know about another exhibit that’s very close by, which will include Jose’s work along with several other well-respected NJ, NY and PA artists (see invitation below). Here are the details:
New Classicism, exploring the influence of classical Greek and Roman ideas on contemporary artists, is the theme of the latest exhibition at the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery located in the Annunciation Center on the campus of College of Saint Elizabeth. All are invited to attend the reception for the artists, on Thursday, January 21 from 4:30 – 7 p.m. The show, which will remains on view through March 5th, is free and open to the public.
New Classicism brings together paintings, sculpture, mixed media works, DVDs and photographs, which illustrate the impact of ancient Euro-Mediterranean cultures on ten contemporary regional artists, including two New Jersey City University professors: Winifred McNeil (Jersey City, NJ), and Dr. Jose Rodeiro (Madison, NJ), as well as NJCU alumnus Gianluca Bianchino (Little Falls, NJ). Also showing are Franc Palaia (Jersey City, NJ), James Patrick Reid (Madison, NJ), Jesus Rivera (Union City, NJ), Vincent J. Romaniello, Jr. (Willow Grove, PA), Edward Schmidt (Piermont, NY), Cheryl Wheat (Piermont, NY) and Sue Zwick (Summit, NJ).
