Library "Call for Artists" for The Gallery at the Library

| No Comments

The Metuchen Public Library, 480 Middlesex Avenue, will soon open The Gallery at The Library in the upstairs Community Room.  The September exhibit will be The Oak Tree Artists led by Ray Skibinski, and in October, the winners of the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey poster contest, "Species on the Edge," will be shown.

This is a "Call To Artists" for two upcoming shows.  An exhibit beginning in November is entitled Celebrate New Jersey, 350 Years.  Works for this exhibit should reflect a New Jersey-related theme, and must be submitted by Friday, September 12.   

The theme for the December/January show is Winter, and again, the work should express an idea or feeling about that season.  Deadline for submissions is October 16.  Established and emerging artists are invited to submit up to two works for either show by sending an e-file of each piece to metuchenlibrary @ gmail.com.    Artists will be notified when the selection of work to be included in the exhibit is completed.   Additional information is available on the Metuchen Public Library website, www.metuchennj.org/library , or by emailphotoedit2@earthlink.net  or kath14h@gmail.com

Nails in the Wall Gallery Presents ARTIFACTS exhibit

| No Comments

Past, present, and future collide at Nails in the Wall, the Gallery @ St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 17 Oak Ave., Metuchen. The church will begin its 150th anniversary celebration with ARTIFACTS, a collection of relics, history, and lore. See and hear how the history of town and church, people and building, intertwine with the growth of our nation. ARTIFACTS include hand-crafted needlework, antique handmade Sunday School materials, many photographs, maps and blueprints, books by authors who have passed our way, and much more.


Come to the opening celebration Saturday Sept. 20, 2-5pm for music and refreshments.  "If these walls could talk..." well, the walls, floors, furniture, handicrafts, and especially the windows HAVE talked to our own Ted Latham, church and town historian. His many years of rummaging, salvaging, sleuthing and saving are manifest today on the Gallery walls. Talk to Ted at the opening, and you will hear even more than those Gallery walls coul contain. Walk through the historic sanctuary with Ted's printed guide for an up-close view of century-old hand-crafted  stained glass windows. 


Want to know more? Ted Latham will offer three talks on Sunday mornings:


Sunday, Oct.12, 11:45am
HISTORY OF THE CHURCHES IN METUCHEN UP UNTIL 1876.

Sunday, Nov.9, 11:45am
BOARD AND BATTEN CARPENTER GOTHIC ARCHITECTURAL STYLE (St. Luke's and other Metuchen Churches)

Sunday, Nov.16, 11:45am
THE ROLE OF ST. LUKE'S AND FOUNDER HENRY MILLS ALDEN IN ESTABLISHING METUCHEN'S REPUTATION AS "THE BRAINY BORO".


ARTIFACTS closes on November 20. WHAT THEN? We begin our journey into the next 150 years!


Gallery hours: M-F 9am - 2pm; Sat. 4-6pm; Sun. 11am-2pm. For further information, please contact

Build with Purpose has received a $121,850 Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Technical Assistance (TA) award from the U.S. Department of the Treasury's CDFI Fund.  Build with Purpose is just one of 22 organizations to receive the TA award.  On Tuesday, the CDFI Fund announced a total of $158.2 million in Financial Assistance awards to 130 CDFIs and $2.6 million in TA awards to 22 certified and emerging CDFIs.

The TA award will provide funds for training and capacity building for Build with Purpose to achieve CDFI certification. "We are excited by this new opportunity and appreciative of the support.  This grant will provide Build with Purpose the resources to obtain CDFI certification which will enable us to better serve low-income communities in and around New Jersey," said Brian Keenan, Director and President of Build with Purpose.

The purpose of the CDFI Program is to use federal resources to invest in existing and emerging CDFIs and to build their capacity to serve low-income people and communities that lack access to affordable financial products and services. Since 1994, the CDFI Fund has awarded more than $1.3 billion in FA and TA awards through the CDFI Program.

Metuchen Car Wash owner Kerry Armus is sponsoring a charging station at his business and he is offering its use for FREE to his customers. The system is being installed now and will be up and running within the next few weeks. Armus hopes that those who drop off their cars for two or three hours to complete their charge will walk downtown and take advantage of all the wonderful business and entertainment and eating opportunities in the Main Street area.

Great idea, Kerry, and awesome way to give back to the community!
