WOW: Wonderful Other Worlds
September 17-December 3, 2017
Witness the power and beauty of the natural world through the technological skills and organic arrangements of photographer and collage artist Ysabel LeMay.
LeMay uses constellations of individual photographs to seamlessly blur the distinction between reality and fantasy, creating harmonious alternate realms. With a discerning eye and indefatigable patience, she observes, selects and photographs thousands of leaves, birds, butterflies, and flowers which are then digitally layered and woven together into vibrant tableaux of startling luminosity that highlight and magnify the beauty of each element.

The Voices of Our Veterans: Combat Paper NJ
July 31 – November 19, 2017
Combat Paper, is an organization intended to break down the “silent veteran” culture through the ancient craft of paper-making. The workshop-based organization teaches veterans and civilians how to make paper out of personal or donated uniforms. The paper-making process ultimately serves as a creative outlet to celebrate, or destroy, the stories the uniforms hold by re-purposing them. The works selected for the exhibition are a small sample of the many voices of our country’s veterans.
