Salons: Opening Reception

DATE: September 9th, 2018
TIME: 1:00pm-4:00pm
LOCATION: Watchung Arts Center 18 Stirling Rd, Watchung, NJ

The show runs September 3rd through September 28th. Drawing from a series of Salons coordinated by Pro Arts Jersey City, Salon 2018 presents the culmination of a series of meetings by groups of artists over a nine-month period. Seeking to inspire community, encourage cross-disciplinary learning and deliver an opportunity for professional artistic development, Pro Arts gave each group the freedom to present their collective vision for this show. With 27 participating artists divided into 4 salon groups (determined by zip code rather than medium), groups worked collaboratively, consulting with a Curatorial Advisor twice throughout the collaboration period to engage in conversations about development of their work.

Learn more about Psykhe below.

Psykhe
Size: 20 x 20 in
Medium: Fine Art Print
Psyche was the goddess of the soul and the wife of Eros god of love.
She was once a mortal princess whose beauty earned the ire of Aphrodite when men began turning their worship away from the goddess towards the girl. Aphrodite commanded Eros make Psykhe fall in love with the most hideous of men but the god instead fell in love and carried her off to a hidden palace. Eros hid his true identity and told Psykhe she must never gaze upon his face. Her jealous sisters, however, tricked her into disobeying and the angry god forsook her. Psykhe searched the world for her lost love and eventually came into the service of Aphrodite. The goddess commanded her perform a series of seemingly impossible tasks which culminated in a journey to the Underworld. Psykhe was afterwards reunited with Eros and the couple were married in a ceremony attended by all the gods.

Meet Selfie Replicant

Selfie Replicant represents who I would be if I was a replicant in Ridley Scott’s 1982 cult classic, Blade Runner. Capturing the feel of the film it shows how my personality would emerge in the futuristic 2049 dystopia. Representing myself as one of the bioengineered androids found in the film I am revealing a hidden strength brought on by personal struggles within my own life. This selfie captures a side of me that is as potentially vindictive and powerful as it is dark and mysterious.
