Artworks Trenton and a Little Synchronicity

Last Friday I posted a notice up on Freecycle.com letting people know I had a mountain of firewood (thanks, Hurricane Sandy) to give away.  One of the people who showed up was James Peeples. James is the Chairman of Artworks Trenton.  Their mission statement says the organization, “Promotes artistic diversity by fostering creativity, learning, and appreciation of the arts. Our classes, exhibitions, and events make art an accessible experience for all.”

After a long and wonderful conversation about art and community work, in which we discovered we have much in common, and perhaps will do some work together, James invited the Best Beloved and me to Trenton the next day to explore their “Art All Day” event, at which the public can visit “Trenton spaces where art, music, dance, theater, literature, crafts, and much more is created and presented. Speak with artists and engaged members of the Trenton community, and witness the exciting potential our city offers. Then, after a day out, be Artworks’ guest at our expansive gallery space for a reception and Art All Day exhibition, featuring work by Art All Day participants.”

Alas, we only had a couple of hours free and couldn’t take advantage of the trolley car that drove visitors around the city to the dozen of exhibits on offer, but we did meet some fascinating artists and saw some great work.

One of the highlights was the S.A.G.E. Coalition on East Hanover Street and their amazing Windows of Soul Project. Click to continue reading…
