Open Call for NJ-Based Visual Artists, Writers/Poets, Composers, Choreographers and Performers: The Creative Capital Professional Development Program (PDP)’s Blended Learning Program: Strategic Planning and Funding Your Work. Get all the info and apply at aferro.org

The Creative Capital Professional Development Program (PDP)’s Blended Learning Program is an integrated four- to six-month program running from March – July 2017 that combines a one-day Strategic Planning & Fundraising in-person workshop, three live webinars, a series of online courses, artist working groups and small group phone consultations. Artists can be from more than one discipline. We are committed to diversity in all it’s multiple forms, with artists of color and/or those who identify as LGBTQIA+ especially encouraged to apply. This program is made possible by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation.

The in-person workshop will be held on March 19th, 2017 at Gallery Aferro, as well as a final convening workshop on July 15th, 2017 at ArtWorks Trenton. Gallery Aferro is an artist-run space centrally located in Newark, New Jersey’s largest city and easily accessible by public transit or driving. We are very excited to be hosting this dynamic professional development program where artists teach artists.

20 North NJ artists will be accepted into the program by Gallery Aferro along with 20 artists from Trenton and 20 artists from South Jersey. Professional artists of all disciplines are eligible to participate in the program, artists should be generative, not interpretive. (For example, the composer over the violinist, the playwright over the actor).

 

My art spans many disciplines and areas. Being a self taught, learning and experimenting has become an ingrained part of my practice and as such there is a diverse range of subject matter and on some occasions style.  Majority of my works are oil paintings, created in series, in a representational style,. Some of note are “Buddhas on Handmade Paper”, “Bicycles in Snow” “#Savetheelephants”. The common thread in my diverse art is the feeling of serenity and tranquility, with the ultimate objective in every painting to capture the harmonious existence of different elements in nature, that evidences life is strong, calm and beautiful.
