Guild of Creative Art Exhibiting Members Show

The top level of Guild membership is showcased in the meeting room of the Eastern Branch during the month of September. Painters will display their inspirational works in a mélange of media including acrylic, alcohol ink, mixed media, oil, pastel, sculpture and watercolor.

In 2010, the Guild of Creative Art proudly celebrated fifty years of service as the oldest and largest art community in New Jersey. Its founder, Yvonne Aubert, was a tireless visionary who purchased a five-car garage at the Guild’s present location at 620 Broad Street, Shrewsbury, in 1960.

Surrounded by fields, the area had yet to grow into a bustling neighborhood of shops and malls. Aubert converted the garage to a studio and exhibition hall and encouraged some of the county’s most notable artists to become charter members. At the time, local painters and sculptors had few venues to exhibit their work and no opportunities for study so Aubert’s inspired idea soon became central to the artistic community of Monmouth County. Over the years, after numerous alterations and additions, the Guild of today is twice the size of the original building, and its membership has expanded to over 400 artists and continues to grow. Located one mile south of Red Bank, the Guild is a member of the New Jersey State Council of the Arts and the Monmouth County Arts Council.

On display from Wednesday, September 3rd through Saturday, September 28th.

rec_paint_palette.png Art Exhibit: Soft Sculpture Dolls by Joan Gavornik Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact:    732-683-8980   
   

Soft sculpture is a specific type of creation consisting of soft cloth, foams and similar items that will work well according to what one is trying to achieve.  The outcome should be a supple but firm piece. In doll making, the art is trying to achieve the most solid but delicate finished piece for best results.

Joan Gavornik is raising the standard of eclecticism. She is an award-winning artist in soft sculpture, which now ranks among traditional art forms. Her soft sculpture dolls have been said to be the most original, most sought after and creative type of doll-making ever to be seen.  A number of Joan's dolls have been signed by the artists they depict.  She has appeared on the Jay Leno Show and on Entertainment Tonight with Chrissie Hynde from the rock band The Pretenders. She has made dolls for bands and entertainers of all types, in addition to private creations for various family members in all parts of the United States. Another love of Joan’s is music.  She is a prolific guitarist/songwriter and has placed 2nd in a writer’s competition on national radio. She has performed with many bands as well as doing session back up work.  All in all, Joan is a talented, one of a kind doll maker and music aficionado.

Meet the artist at a reception on Saturday, September 7th from 12:00 - 3:00 pm.     In addition, enjoy the soft, imaginative jazz music of Tommy and the Tomahawks from 1:00 - 2:00 pm, consisting of Tom Gavornik on acoustic electric guitar, Tony Cimorosi on bass guitar and Koko Bermejo on drums.  These accomplished musicians produce an innovative, brilliant and modern jazz sound.

Monmouth County Runs Donation Drive for the Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Memorial Fund

The Donation Drive lasts September 16 through October 16

Monmouth County is running a donation drive, spearheaded by Freeholder Deputy Director Lillian Burry, to support the Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski, II Memorial Fund, a local organization that provides support to improve the morale and welfare of members of all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces as well as their families. The drive begins on Monday, September 16 and ends on Tuesday, October 16.

“I am always proud to partner with the Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Memorial Fund – an extraordinary organization that supports our troops,” said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry. “The supplies that our Monmouth County residents collect will help brighten the holidays and express our deepest gratitude to the men and women in our armed forces who sacrifice so much to protect us.”

Collection boxes, where donations can be dropped, have been set up at several Monmouth County buildings.

The Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Memorial Fund was founded in 2006 to honor the life and memory of Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski, who was one of four American soldiers killed by a roadside bomb during combat operations in Bayji, Iraq on Nov. 12, 2005. The officer grew up in Middletown.

Create your own fall magic by learning to paint vibrant florals including a pumpkin in this 2 hour hands-on workshop conducted by local artist, Som.  She will teach you the basics of painting loose florals in an easy, spontaneous way without the need for elaborate pencil sketches.  You also get to apply your skills with the creation of a fall wreath canvas piece to take home.  

All materials provided.  Just bring along a cup for water, an old wash cloth, and an apron (optional).  

Limited to 10 adult participants.  Registration required.  Please register below to reserve your seat.  

Som Vanguri is a Morganville based artist who specializes in watercolor and acrylics.  Som has been painting since the age of 6 and is heavily inspired by nature and color.  She enjoys painting flowers, landscapes, house portraits and pet portraits, among other themes.  Som also creates miniature art jewelry, hand painted burlap accessories, note cards, and more.  One of her favorite techniques is using free flowing brush strokes without an elaborate sketch, as she feels this brings out the inner artistic expression to the fullest.  

Som's work has been showcased at many art and craft shows and featured on blogs and in magazines. Her art brand is Peony Peacock Studio and can be found on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
