About Happy Freakin’ Holidays Vo. 5
The vision behind our L’N’L holiday compilation was to bring together our artists with other local bands and solo musicians from the Central NJ area to spread holiday cheer with an original edge.

We could’ve gone the more “traditional” route, but since there is so much raw original talent at our fingertips, why do what has been done already? Thus, each track reflects that particular artist’s musical style and occasionally skewed viewpoint of the winter holidays.

We hope you enjoy this compilation as much as we enjoyed making it for you. Happy Freakin’ Holidays from our family to yours!

Need a Break from the Cold Outside? Warm Up at the Zimmerli!

Press Release:

This winter, the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers offers a diverse schedule of programs and events for all interests. Catch up on current exhibitions during the school break. Or relax at a variety of musical performances. Activities take place at the Zimmerli, located at 71 Hamilton Street in New Brunswick, on the Rutgers University College Avenue campus. The museum is closed December 25 and January 1. The Zimmerli is open regular hours on December 26, 27, 28, 30, 31, as well as January 2, 3, and 4. Admission to the museum and all activities is free. For more details, visit www.zimmerlimuseum.rutgers.edu.

2X: Paintings, Pairs, Twins, and Diptychs spotlights five large-scale contemporary works, both loans and from the permanent collection, that examine the concept of doubling. In Western art, interest in the double has a long history, beginning with depictions of Narcissus and his reflection. In modern and contemporary art, artists have incorporated the double (or copy) for a variety of purposes: to juxtapose two states of mind or matter; to complicate notions of time and place; to explore the multiplicity of identity; or even to allude to the moral implications of cloning. These thought-provoking paintings by David Diao, Fariba Hajamadi, Joan Snyder, and Martin Wong will be on view from December 20, 2014, through July 31, 2015.

The Music at the Museum concert series continues this winter. The Young Artists Program on Saturday, December 20, features small ensembles, offering works by Respighi, Weill, Borodin, and Beethoven. The performance begins at 2 p.m. In addition, students from the Mason Gross Extension Division (www.masongross.rutgers.edu/extension) present their recitals on Saturday and Sunday, January 17 and 18, 2015, beginning at 12:45 and 3:00 p.m. each day. These family-friendly weekend concerts are organized by the Extension Division and hosted by the Zimmerli Art Museum. Admission is free for the concerts, but seating is limited. For the complete schedule, visit bit.ly/ZAMMatM.

Kick off 2015 at Art After Hours: First Tuesdays by stopping in on the first Tuesday of the year, January 6. The evening includes a curator-led tour of the new exhibition 2X: Paintings, Pairs, Twins, and Diptychs, as well as the galleries that showcase George Segal and Abstraction in Sculpture, beginning at 6:00 p.m. The tour is immediately followed by the next selection in the Big Ten: Art series, which spotlights one intriguing work of art from the collection each month. The New Brunswick Jazz Project presents vocalist Najwa Parkins, joined by Dan Hanrahan (guitar), Chris Simonini (organ), and Kevin Ripley (drums). A graduate of the Temple University Boyer College of Music and Dance, Parkins frequently performs throughout the greater Philadelphia region and has appeared at jazz festivals in the Hague and Detroit. Her album Not the Next Someone Else features jazz standards and her original compositions. The quartet performs two sets, beginning at 6:30 and 7:30 p.m. Art After Hours takes place from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m., featuring free admission and complimentary refreshments. To learn more, visit bit.ly/ArtAfterHourZTues.

The first performance takes place on Sunday, January 11, beginning at 3:00 p.m. Musical selections are interspersed with wine, cheese, and conversation, inviting guests to chat with the musicians about what inspires them and the process behind their art. Future performances begin at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 7, and Friday, May 8. Admission is free for the salon series.

Diner Round Up – Red Bank Diner

photo 1(1)

The Red Bank diner is now sadly the only diner in Red Bank (RIP Broadway Diner) however it is a VERY good diner.

I had never been there before, despite being a frequent Red Bank goer, so I was looking forward to finally trying it out.

The diner is located on Broad St in downtown Red Bank so it’s in a great location. They don’t have their own parking, but there is plenty of street and lot parking in Red Bank. We actually walked there (in the pouring rain) after visiting Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash and before seeing a movie at Count Basie Theatre. (I love Red Bank)

The diner itself is on the smaller side, but it is cute and most importantly clean! I really like the warm, intimate setting of this diner.

I decided on getting the Fisherman’s Panini – Fried Shrimp, Mozzarella, Spinach and Roast Peppers. Nom nom nom.

They’re not open late, but it’s a great place for breakfast, lunch and an early dinner.

Workshops

The Arts Guild will be offering two exciting workshops: Portrait in a Day taught by Westfield, New Jersey artist Gary Godbee on Saturday, February 21, 2015 and The Six- Hour Art Major, a two-day workshop taught by Gene Wisniewski on February 21st & 28th, 2015 . Both workshops will be held in our studio classroom space on the corner of Easterbrook and Milton Avenues in Rahway at the Senior Center Annex, 125 West Milton Avenue.

This marks the second time Arts Guild New Jersey is offering the Six-Hour Art Major seminar taught by Gene Wisniewski. The Six-Hour Art Major, with its tag line “Art School, Condensed”, features mini-versions of Art History and Art Appreciation, hands-on drawing exercises, and a general discussion on developing creativity. “By making yourself into an artist, you get a whole different take on art,” Mr. Wisniewski says.   “You get to learn what goes into making art, and can develop a better understanding of it.”

logoseminar2britecrop

Mr. Wisniewski has offered versions of his Six-Hour Art Major seminar at prestigious and diverse venues such as the 92nd Street Y, SUNY Purchase, and social club Soho House New York, as well as privately. The 2-part course is going to be offered on two consecutive Saturdays, February 21 & 28 from 11:00 am to 1:00pm (each half) at 125 West Milton Avenue in the Rahway Senior Center ANNEX. The workshop fee is $95 for Arts Guild Members and $105 for non-members.

Portrait in a Day will be held on Saturday, February 21 from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM. The workshop fee is $85 for Art Guild Members and $95 for non-members. The foundation of a realist portrait is a solid understanding of how to render a like ness through drawing the way light and img295shadow defines form. In this one-day drawing workshop, students will work from a live model as we explore the major forms of the head and the individual features of the face. The goal of the workshop is for each student to gain stronger control of form and value as we complete a portrait drawing in one session. We will be creating heightened drawings using hard and soft pencils and white chalk on toned paper. This technique allows the artist to more easily work on both the highlights and the shadow areas of the form in order to create a convinc-ing illusion of 3-dimensional space. There will be a half-hour break for lunch. A materials list will be emailed to you after registering for this workshop.

You can register and pay for workshops on www.agnj.org

New Jersey Singer-Songwriter Scott DeCarlo To Hold 5th Annual Christmas Benefit Show

Press Release:

New Jersey based country music singer/songwriter Scott DeCarlo is teaming up with venue Mexicali Live to present the fifth installment of the annual event, “Bands And Fans With Giving Hands”.

In addition, DeCarlo is holding a toy drive for the children of local families in need.
