Gabriel Molina Bio

Gabriel Molina is a Philadelphia-South Jersey based artist. From a young age, Gabriel has always had an attraction to and natural talent for fine arts. Drawing, painting, and sculpture were just some of the skills improved upon in elementary and high school. As a college student at Villanova University, Gabriel received formal training in watercolor painting, drawing, and Byzantine icon making. This hands-on training was a great addition to Gabriel’s undergraduate studies in Art History for which he completed his degree in 2014. It was at Villanova where Gabriel first displayed some of his earlier watercolor works. Gabriel is inspired by the symbolism and iconography of European Baroque works, which served as the subject of his thesis “Royal Power, Religion and Portraiture in Seventeenth-century Spain”. Contrasting sharply with this interest, is his deep appreciation of tribal and ancient art which has inspired his Ancient Civilization Skull series. Gabriel’s own Puerto Rican heritage plays a large part, not only in who he is, but also in his art, as seen in his “Puertas de mi viejo San Juan” (“Doors of My Old San Juan”) series. When Gabriel is not creating art, he works for the Rutgers University-Camden Community Leadership Center as a Program Coordinator for Jumpstart, a supplemental early childhood education program facilitated by university students. This is a natural fit for Gabriel who actively looks to make an impact in under-served and under-resourced communities.

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.
