ArtYard (in)animate Art Opening

ArtYard is pleased to present (in)animate, a group exhibition with artists whose work repurposes organic materials. The fragility of insect wings, the durability of fossils and rocks, the strangeness of bones and feathers create conditions for art that can be dislocating, arresting, beautiful, and illuminating. In pondering what animates nature and what is missing in its absence, viewers may be invited to consider their own cycles of transience and transformation.

 
The exhibition will also invite visitors to engage in a creative process of their own in a separate space inspired by the Rhode Island School of Design’s Nature Lab, a miniature natural history museum. Throughout the duration of the show, visitors are invited to contribute nuts, seeds, bones or other found materials from nature, and to model a range of masks made of natural materials or fashion their own for instant portraits in our photo booth.
Join us for the opening reception Saturday, September 30th, 2017, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
The exhibition will be on display from September 30th through December 31st, 2017. ArtYard founder and executive director Jill Kearney will be available for interviews.

ArtYard is a non-profit art center based in Frenchtown, New Jersey, a little more than an hour?s drive from Philadelphia and Manhattan. It?s campus of repurposed buildings houses a program of art exhibition, artists’ residency, performance, film and collaborative workshops.

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
 
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
