AGNJ Presents “Yesterday’s News”, Opening Reception – Nov 23

CARD

Arts Guild New Jersey is pleased to present “Yesterday’s News, curated by Douglas Ferrari. The exhibition, which opens on November 23 and runs through December 18, 2014 will have a free, public reception on Sunday, November 23, 1-4 PM, at Arts Guild New Jersey.

When you look at the overwhelming amount of unused newspapers it is not surprising that, in recent times, many artists have taken up the mantel of recycling “Yesterday’s News” in their work.  Although newspaper as art medium is not breaking news, the manner in which this collection of artists uses it is definitely unique, different, and newsworthy.  Some use it as a design element, some as a structural component, some as a source of inspiration, and some sublimate this printed trash into objects of beauty.  However you view it, these artists will convince you that there is something to be said about “Yesterday’s News”.

The artists who are participating in this exhibition are Fanny Allié, Aileen Bassis, Riccardo Berlingeri, Richard Buntzen, Kelly Clark, Chris Pelletiere, and Geoffrey Stein.

Date: Sunday, November 23rd, 2014; 1pm t 4pm
Address: 1670 Irving St,  Rahway, NJ
Cost: FREE
