The Cinco De Madre

The Cinco De Madre


This group exhibition will feature the work of Emily Chang, Paula Focazio, Michelle Frick, Catherine Lent, Ron Lent, Leo Lock, Dustin Parent, Laura Pointon, Joe Strasser and others.

The Cinco de Madre (mother love art market) is a collective of local makers showing in Frenchtown, New Jersey.  A conglomerate of street artists, painters, sculptors, and crafters, this group comes together to show along the creek at Ressarts Projects, organized by Catherine Lent & Joe Strasser, and in conjunction with the first-Friday archetype show curated by Joe Strasser and Dustin Parent in Joe’s studio.  Makers of all types of media and a wide range of price-points will gather to celebrate the vast creativity of this community.

Emily Chang makes original paintings in oils, acrylics, and watercolors.

Paula Focazio is an artist best known for her colorful porcelain pottery and henna body art.  In her pottery, she employs the \”sgraffito\” technique to embellish her wares with ornate designs.  She is particularly enamored of Moroccan art and often incorporates those motifs into her artwork.

Michelle Frick photographs her sculptures & installations that live at the intersection of science, art, medicine & nature. Her birds evoke contradictions: nature and the synthetic world that sustains us, human resilience and medical technology, fear and sweetness, waste and environmental awareness.

A/B – This is a print by Ron Lent, whose primary disciplines are drawing and painting.

Leo Lock works primarily in acrylic but also uses oils, pastels, and ink, often in the same work.

Laura Pointon used wood, paints, broken things, found objects, and doll parts to make her art.
