Nails In the Wall Presents EarthAirFireWater This September

| No Comments

Nails in the Wall, the Gallery at St. Luke's, the Metuchen exhibition space sponsored by St. Luke's Episcopal Church, 17 Oak Ave., Metuchen, NJ, begins its fourth exhibition season with the Opening & Artists' Reception Saturday, September 19, 2-5pm, of

EarthAirFireWater: Elements/Sacraments.

In addition to the opportunity to meet most of the exhibiting artists, and hear several speak briefly about their work, the Opening will include Janet Aspinwall's dramatic monologue as the New Testament "Woman at the Well."

Aspinwall has performed in many community theater productions in New Jersey, most recently as Sister Aloysius in "Doubt" at the Cranford Dramatic Club Theatre.  She earned a BS in Drama and an MA in Mathematics at Syracuse University. Janet is a long-time member of the First Presbyterian Church of Metuchen where she is currently a Deacon.

This exhibit itself features 50 pieces of work by 29 artists, both local and from across the country and continues from September 19 through December 31, 2015.

Included in the exhibit is art in a full range of media, from free-standing, three-dimensional works to collage, paintings, mosaic, video and photography.  "The Gallery Board was amazed at the scale of many of the works sent to be considered," acknowledged Board Member Deborah Kmetz.  "It's almost as though the theme called for pieces 'as big as all outdoors'!  But we are delighted to have a space that can elegantly present work of very large dimension."

Pennsylvania artist John Langdon, artist and graphic designer who created images for both the book and the film Angels and Demons, has several large graphics in the exhibit, along with a print of the ambigram he created for the Dan Brown work.
