Get an Inside Look at ArtsBergen's Connect the Dots: Studio Sneak Peek, Featuring Artists in a Virtual Tour of Their Studios
WHEN: Wednesday, April 21, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. EDT
Get a sneak peek of three artists' work from their studios in the Northern New Jersey Community Foundation (NNJCF) ArtsBergen initiative's Connect the Dots.. The Connect the Dots' Studio Sneak Peek will showcase these established artists in their studios in pre-recorded videos: pianist Carolyn Enger, fine artist Paul Leibow, and mixed media artist Poramit Thantapalit.
The public is invited to attend and get an inside look into the lives of three artists and how they work. The artists will discuss and demonstrate their creative process for a recent work, a current unfinished project or their practice in general. A live panel discussion follows, with Q and A in virtual breakout rooms with each artist and time for networking. Artists, community members, business owners, municipal leaders, developers, educators, and healthcare leaders are invited to attend, learn and connect with the regional arts community in this free event.
Pianist Carolyn Enger has gained critical acclaim for
her lyrical and dynamic playing, as well as her deeply felt interpretations of
works from the 18th century to the present. In addition to an active
performance schedule on two continents, Ms. Enger has enjoyed remarkable
success as a recording artist. The New York Times selected her Naxos recording
of intimate Ned Rorem miniatures, Piano Album I & Six Friends, as one of
the newspaper’s “Best In Classical Recordings” for that year. Gramophone
declared, “Enger raises the miniatures to a higher level.”
Artist Paul Leibow works in painting, sculpture, mix media and film. A documentary art video about his archival process was selected by the Metropolitan Museum of Arts' program for art on film. He has created art works for recording artist Bruce Springsteen for his world tour, including books and branded icons and logos utilized for his concerts. In 2019, he was awarded an art residency at Tamarind Institute at the University of New Mexico and has two editions archived in the New Mexico Museum of Art. In 2020, his artworks were featured in Artmaze Magazine's Winter Issue 16.
