When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.

Opening Reception for "The Spirit of Charity" Art Exhibition
on Tuesday, September 8 2009 04:30 PM - 07:00 PM

The "Spirit of Charity" reveals contemporary paintings, photographs, sculptures, DVD presentations and installations that celebrate the broad notion of charity. More than 20 works by national artists, especially those from the New Jersey and New York area, will focus on themes and ideas surrounding compassion, generosity and altruism. Co-curator, Patricia Pongracz, Ph.D. notes the show includes a variety of ways in which charity is expressed through images of Saint Francis, Buddhist monks, a soldier's family during World War II, organ donors, volunteer urban gardeners, and visual meditations on society's response to beggars and the homeless.

Artists in the exhibition include: Janice Anderson (Cliffwood, NJ); Leigh Celentano (New York City); Doug DePice (Secaucus, NJ); Jim Fuess (Berkeley Heights, NJ); Sister Anne Haarer (Convent Station, NJ); Jude Harzer (Brick, NJ); So Yoon Lym (Wayne, NJ); Claire Marcus (Bethlehem, PA); Athena Robles (Washington, DC) and Anna Stein (Brooklyn, NY); Susannah Slocum (New York City); and Peter Tilgner (Tenafly, NJ).
