Event Description

The County of Passaic is hosting an exhibit featuring three distinctly unique exhibitions by three local artists. The exhibits are currently on view and will run through Sunday, May 30th at the Passaic County Arts Center at the John W. Rea House, 675 Goffle Road in Hawthorne, New Jersey.

"Sense and Sustainability" curated by Poramit Thantapalit is an installation comprised entirely of recycled materials which includes plastics, labels, and discarded clothing. Thantapalit, a native of Thailand, incorporated cyanotype photogram while developing the piece. A cyanotype photogram is a photographic printing process that creates a cyan-blue print made without a camera by placing
items directly onto photographic paper.

"The Full Moon Series" is nearly 50 years in the making. For Joseph Coco, this is the 13th installment of designated works from over 125 paintings and drawings to date. Images from December, when the first full moon rises, recaps his year. Each January moon anticipates the year ahead. Coco, a Passaic, New Jersey native, composed 13 pieces of music to complement the
images.

"The Infinite: Arch and Line" by Anna Carina Sinocchi also incorporates the photogram technique by producing a silhouetted shape that sets the foundation for the final product. The process is organic by nature. The way the photograph is developed, in conjunction with the transformation of the material surface, reveals the next step for Sinocchi, the painting itself.

The Passaic County Arts Center at the John W. Rea House opened in June 2019 and has been featuring local artists. Those interested in showcasing their works can submit proposals on a rolling basis. For more information, please visit pcartscenter.org.
