The ornamental grasses on my roof deck sway gently, with the breeze. Holding droplets of dew , while the sun rises. The light dancing between the high rises, in boomerang reflection. Warming the air and evaporating the pearl like droplets, into vapor.
Beginning in January, three groups of interested Pro Arts members met once a month to share their ideas and work for feedback and inspiration. Each group was assigned a curator who met with them twice to offer another point of view and their suggestions. This year’s program was particularly challenging due to the pandemic forcing most of the meetings to Zoom. Nevertheless, the groups persisted and this exhibition is a culmination of our hard work.

Abstracted Viewpoints / Gerry Heydt, Curator Theda Sandiford Christine Barney Tharanga Goonetilleke Richard White – (not participating in the show)

The 30th anniversary Jersey City Art & Studio Tour features nearly 70 virtual events, held entirely on Zoom from Oct 1st – Oct 4th. Audiences will be able to take a look inside the studios and galleries of the diverse artists that call Jersey City home.
