Plainsboro Public Library, December 2015 — “Art Served Up Trenton Style” makes its way to the Gallery at Plainsboro Public Library, featuring work by the Trenton Artists Workshop Association (TAWA) and the SAGE Coalition. The exhibition includes 21 artists from two arts organizations central to New Jersey’s capital city and demonstrates a mixture of backgrounds, approaches, and traditions. An art reception will be held Saturday, December 5, from 2 to 4 pm, where many of the artists will be on hand to answer questions about their work. The show runs December 5 – January 6, 2016.
The Trenton Artists Workshop has a 30 year history of exhibiting in venues such as the New Jersey State Museum, Trenton City Museum, and Artworks. It has launched significant city arts initiatives and programs such as the groundbreaking Eyes on Trenton festival, as well as created an artists’ exchange with the Soviet Union.
SAGE is a younger organization made up of street writers and artists who have launched the city’s “Windows of Souls,” a city-beautification program that uses mural and graffiti art to bring life to abandoned buildings and streets. They also organize the annual “Jersey Jam,” one of the largest graffiti projects on the east coast.
Exhibiting artists include Priscilla Snow Algava, Joanne Amantea, Elizabeth Aubrey, Will Condry “KASSO,” Jonathan Connor, Katie Hector, Dean “Ras” Innocenzi, Aubrey J. Kauffman, “Luv One,” Wills Kinsley, Mary Leck, Mel Leipzig, Terri McNichol, Margaret Miccio, Dave Orantes, Gentrified Prufrock, Leon Rainbow, Bonnie Randall, Addison Vincent, Jessie Vincent, and Andrew Wilkinson.
