BEDMINSTER, N.J. - April 9, 2019 - PRLog -- The Center for Contemporary Art ("The Center") is pleased to announce the opening of three solo exhibitions beginning April 12th and remaining on view through June 8th. The opening reception will be held on Friday, April 12th from 6-8 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

Auguste Elder: Sublunarians, presents the work of ceramist, artist and educator, Auguste Elder. Elder graduated from The University of the Arts, and New York University, and has studied pottery independently in Philadelphia, Paris, and New York City. He has been a visiting artist at Salem Art Works (SAW) since 2015, where he focuses primarily on wood-firing vessels and urns inspired by Japanese and Etruscan wares. Auguste teaches art to high school students at The Calhoun School in Manhattan, NY, and ceramics at ClayHouse in Brooklyn, NY.

Marsha Goldberg: Reiterations-Paintings & Works on Paper, features the artwork of Marsha Goldberg, which in her words, "deals with subjects that are seemingly not connected: clouds of smoke as presented in news media in reporting acts of war; and a wooded landscape, captured in drawings shortly before the trees were destroyed to make way for development." She goes on to say, "I've used both subjects as means to consider the passage of time, definitions of gesture and abstraction, and how reiteration can both inform and obscure meaning." Originally from Boston, MA, she now lives and works in Highland Park, NJ, also maintaining a studio in Newark. Her work is primarily in painting, drawing, and printmaking, and recently she has been making cyanotypes from ink-on-acetate drawings. In 2013, she received the NJ State Council for the Arts Fellowship in the category Works on Paper.

Margaret Fanning: Snapshots, showcases the recent work of artist and faculty member of The Center, Margaret Fanning. A New Jersey native, Fanning has had art woven into her life from a young age. Influenced and encouraged by her grandmother, who was an artist herself, she went on to study at Savannah College of Art and Design where she earned her BFA in Painting. She takes her inspiration from snapshots and explains, "little to no preparation goes into creating an image, keeping the moment as honest as possible. They mark a time when someone followed a whim, released their camera shutter, and hoped that the image wouldn't be blurry."
