“Flight/Patterns” Art Exhibit @ Artists' Gallery
Sep 18 @ 3:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Explore rhythms, flight, textures, and patterns inspired by the natural world in the art of  Beatrice Bork and Jennifer Cadoff at Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville.  “Flight/Patterns” showcases these award-winning artists’ latest paintings and drawings, and is their second collaboration in as many years.

Beatrice Bork is an internationally-recognized wildlife artist whose watercolors capture animals  — often, but not exclusively, birds – immersed in their natural habitat.  “The signature of Beatrice’s art is an ability to balance the intricate details of her animal subjects with loose brushwork, splashes of color and unusual compositions that make her paintings thrum with life,” says Cadoff.  Bork has won the prestigious Don Eckleberry Award for outstanding bird art from the Society of Animal Artists, of which she is a signature member.  Her  paintings have been published in a variety of books and magazines and acquired by collectors from around the world.

Jennifer Cadoff, also an award-winning artist, makes intricate abstract ink drawings that suggest her close observation of natural patterns such as tree bark, rain, even cells under a microscope. Bork says: “Jennifer creates thousands of small, simple marks that transform into wonderfully complex organic patterns that let your imagination take flight.  They draw viewers in to discover and interpret—and each can see something totally different in her work.”  Cadoff incorporates into some of her compositions the outlines of  leaves, pine cones and other natural detritus that she collects on her walks, mesmerized by the infinite variations of their simple forms.  Other work includes striking collages that play with dimension and form through combinations of patterns and textures.

The artists invite you to explore their work at their opening reception on Saturday September 6, from 5 to 8 pm.  The show runs through Sunday October 5, with another opportunity to meet the artists at “Coffee & Conversation” on that day, from 2 to 4 pm.  See Beatrice and Jennifer’s work right now, and learn more about them, on their websites: www.beatricebork.artspan.com and www.jennifercadoff.com.

Sip, Sit & Stay – A Wine Tasting at Unionville Vineyards to Benefit Animal Alliance of NJ

Join us to enjoy some of the area’s finest local wines on Unionville Vineyard’s 88.7 acre property  - one of Hunterdon County’s most stunning settings!  Learn some local history while tasting a variety of red, white, artisan and dessert wines paired with fresh local cuisine.

Health Movie Night @ Wellness Works
Sep 18 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 18 @ 9:00 pm

SPECTRUM HEALTH CONSULTING presents BITTER SEEDS

Bitter Seeds is a powerful, eye-opening film that exposes the effects of Monsanto’s greed on Indian farmers. While the stories that encompass the film are truly tragic, Manjusha, the 18-year-old aspiring journalist the film follows, brings out a sense of hope. Her story and motivation inspires the audience to ask why and how such a thing could happen.

Biotechnology is changing the way farming is done all over the world. Advocates believe the “New Green Revolution” is the only way to provide sufficient food for the world’s growing population while opponents raise environmental concerns and fear that GMOs drive small-scale farmers off the land. Bitter Seeds explores the controversy — from a village in India that uses genetically modified seeds to U.S. government agencies that promote them.

 

Come at 6pm to network and get to know your local food resources and providers.

The program will start at 6:30 with Q & A following the movie.

*The mission of Movie Night is to connect local food providers to community while raising awareness about food, nutrition, and health. With increased knowledge, connection, and resources, we heal the planet and ourselves.
