Black Swan Espresso, 93 Halsey Street, Newark, NJ 07102

07AM-8PM

Opening Reception: Friday, October 11, 4PM-8PM

Sharon Adarlo, local Newark artist and writer, will be showing a small collection of paintings, drawings and sculptures that deal with our sensual perception of the world - phenomenology - via the realistic, artistic rendering of various objects: food, the human body, finely handmade artifacts, etc. As such, the art pieces range in style and medium, from highly technical oil paintings and drawings done in the mold of the Old Masters, stylized portraits of people, to evocative and mysterious shadow boxes.

Opening Reception: Friday, October 11, 6PM-10PM

Performance by:
Kelly Villalba and Desmond Grant
8PM-9PM
Artist Statement:

“Stand Down” is a time-based piece involving installation, performance, and printmaking. In my performance, I consider the issues that women face under misogynistic and patriarchal expectations. The struggle observed between the body and the object illustrates the pressure placed on women to be stronger, smarter, and better than their male peers, despite being perpetually ignored, mistreated, and silenced. This work reclaims the use of the female nude as the passive object to the creative initiator.

Collateral Damage

Event poster/Featured Image

33 Washington Street, Newark, NJ 07102

6PM-9PM

Opening Reception: Friday, October 11, 6PM-9PM

Collateral Damage is a sight-specific installation commenting on the caging of children in detention centers in the United States.

Obviously the cage in the center of the room is specific reference to those in which children are being held at detention centers. Surrounding the cage, I have placed dozens of foil "blankets" mimicking those that are given to the children sleeping on concrete floors. Each of the “blankets” has a different physical object that once belonged to a child: a toy, a sock, a dress, a sneaker, or another article of clothing.

All these objects have been donated by children and parents who find it painful to even conceive of children being caged.

Collateral Damage is on view October 8-30...24/7 from street and by appointment.

Hetrick-Martin Institute: New Jersey provides supportive services to LGBTQ Youth ages 13-21. With it's main NJ location at 550 Broad St. in Newark, Artist in Residence Barbara Bickart, facilitated the Queer Youth Art Collective to produce the work in this show: "IGNITION" - experimental work in self-portraiture. Generously funded by the Newark Arts ArtStart Grant, HMI: NJ youth members engaged in process-based art-making that explored expression and identity.

Please join us for an Open Studio and bear witness to the work of the LGBTQ youth in Northern New Jersey.
