This event does not repeat

Juxtapose Gallery will host an Art Exhibit by Westfield artist Joanna M. Wezyk entitled "Ookie 2: NOT FROM THIS WORLD". This is a sequel exhibit devoted and inspired by the kooky and spooky artwork of Charles Addams. Through her series of oil paintings, drawings, and digital images, Wezyk explores the contrasting themes of fear and bliss, and how they intertwine with our childhood memories. Using reference to horror in pop-culture, such as The Exorcist, Nosferatu, The Shining, and Silence of the Lambs, colorful petals imitate moths, and the stems of flowers develop into living vines, leading viewers into a fear of the false beauty. A Meet the Artist Reception will be held Saturday, October 27 from 6:30-8:30pm. Live music, refreshments will be served at this family-friendly event. The show hangs until November 15. 908.232.3278. www.JuxtaposeGallery.com
