‘Off the Wall’: An Affordable Art Sale

Tuesday, November 5 to Friday, December 20, 2019

 

Closing Party: Friday, December 20, 4 to 6 pm

Now presenting the work of over 100 artists in “Off the Wall,” an Affordable Art Sale. As an affordable art sale, artwork will be offered at prices from $50 to $400. Artworks may be literally taken off the wall at the time of purchase.


Marla Powers’ artwork is representative of the unique art in various mediums and styles that one can see in this show. Powers’ art is influenced by her background in anthropology and her studies of the art of the Lakota people in South Dakota and the Pueblo people in New Mexico. Powers focuses on creating artwork that allows the viewer to sense the movement and energy of the subject matter. This fluidity is evident in Powers’ work cache-cache, mon amour which she created using encaustic collage and mixed media.

In addition to mediums such as encaustic, oil, acrylic, watercolor, photography, and printmaking, some artists used artistic techniques that relate to their heritage. Artist Ke He used traditional Chinese brush painting in her work Resting Whitle Ostrich. Each artist also considers how the viewer of the artwork might interpret the piece. Adriana Groza’s Aerial View is an acrylic representation of the ocean as seen from above. Groza emphasized that this aerial perspective gives the viewer flexibility in how he or she chooses to display the painting on the wall.

New this year, the West Windsor Arts Council is pleased to showcase thirteen works of art by participants in the Visual Arts Program at The Arc Mercer. The Arc Mercer has served people with special needs through empowering programs for 70 years.
