Featured Event

Pegasus Theatre Project presents Yasmina Reza’s award-winning comedy, ‘ART’, March 31-April 9, 2017.  ‘ART’ is a timeless comedy about three friends whose friendship is thrown into chaos when one of them buys a modern painting that another considers a joke, while the third is caught in the middle trying to keep the peace.  By exploring questions about what is art and what one’s taste in art says about the person, the friends come to address bigger issues that have been challenging their relationship.  Will they be able to resolve their differences, or have they grown too far apart? GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.

Exhibition Highlight
Member Show: The Natural Muse
Bill Plank, Birth
Second Place Prize

Bill Plank earned his Associates Degree in Visual Arts from Mercer County Community College, and attained his Bachelors Degree in Art Education from Trenton State College. After teaching for twenty-five years, he retired to form his own art business called Plank Art Designs, selling a variety of merchandise such as prints, mugs and notecards using his original designs. Throughout his years of teaching, Plank continued to produce and exhibit his acrylic paintings at such places as Educational Testing Service in Princeton and Capitol Health System’s Mercer Hospital Campus, to name a few. Bill’s paintings are influenced by artists such as the Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich, Andrew and James Wyeth, and contemporary illustrator/landscape painter Philip Travers.

“Much of my artwork concerns itself with rebirth and rejuvenation in nature. Through the use of symbolism, I present this theme in a subtle yet strong interpretation. The painting Birth depicts a flowering cactus which, despite adverse conditions, continues to bloom again each year — a perfect example of rebirth. Also reinforcing this theme, DaVinci’s embryo drawing represents a tribute to one of the greatest ‘observers of nature.’ The geometric globe represents worlds within worlds, for example, the womb as a living organ housing another life.”
