Studios and public spaces will be the venues for painters who work in oils, acrylics and watercolors, sculptors, photographers, and collage-and-mixed-media artists. Music and spoken-word performances will also be going on throughout the day. Continue reading STUDIO TOUR 18   Hoboken Art & Studio Tour Coming Up Nov. 3 & 4

ALIGHT IN THE DARK- Artist Joyce Yu-Jean Lee’s ‘State of the Dysunion’ Extended at NJCU through Mar. 28

Lee’s Work Explores Media’s Impact and The Search for Hope in a Dystopian Culture

 Alight in the dark

By Sally Deering

 We live in the Information Age where we eat, sleep and ‘digest’ news 24/7. Since Donald Trump became the 45th President of the U.S., and reports of Twitterbots and other Internet propaganda machines churning out lies have become the norm for news, it seems impossible for people to get a grip on the truth.

In an effort to make sense of media messages put out during Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s year-long presidential campaigns in 2016, and these dystopian times since Trump’s election, mixed-media artist Joyce Yu-Jean Lee presents “State of The Dysunion” a new art installation on view at the Visual Arts Gallery on Culver Avenue adjacent to the NJCU campus. The show has been extended through Mar. 28. Continue reading ALIGHT IN THE DARK- Artist Joyce Yu-Jean Lee’s ‘State of the Dysunion’ Extended at NJCU through Mar. 28
