The 28th Annual Fall Studio Tour will take place Thanksgiving Weekend, 2022.
M Galleries will be open on Saturday, APRIL 30 and Sunday, MAY 1 from 11 AM to 9 PM.
one show, two locations
Saturday, APRIL 30 marks the opening of “HERE/THERE” and “THERE/HERE.” The locations of these concurrent exhibitions are M Galleries 67 E Washington Avenue, Washington, NJ 07882 and M Galleries PNA 54 Mine Hill Road, Washington, NJ 07882 (at the Pohatcong Native Arboretum). The shows will feature the work of the Princeton-based art group MOVIS. The members of MOVIS include 7 visual artists: Berendina Buist, Susan Hockaday, Eve Ingalls, Marsha Levin-Rojer, Frank Magalhaes, Liz Mitchell, and Frank May; and musician/composer Rita Asch. Representing a diverse group of backgrounds, education, and experience, they share a boundless curiosity, a desire for challenge, and a profound commitment to art-making. Now entering their 17th year together, MOVIS continues to meet weekly to share art-related interests and ideas. They have collaborated on group exhibitions at venues that have included the NJ State Museum, The Hunterdon Art Museum, the Arts Council of Princeton, Rutgers University, and Mercer County Community College.
“HERE/THERE” and “THERE/HERE” has encouraged the artists to think about their work in terms of dualities. Each gallery will exhibit one piece by each of the artists. Some members have taken a temporal perspective by selecting an early work for one gallery and a more contemporary piece for the second. Other members will highlight the breadth of their work by offering pieces using different mediums and/or styles. Still others will exhibit two pieces of the same body of work to give insight into the artist’s ongoing exploration. Work will include sound, photography, video, prints, oil paintings, cut-outs, collage, paper sculpture, as well as hand-made artbooks. The galleries will be open from 11 AM – 9 PM on Saturday, APRIL 30 and Sunday, MAY 1 as part of The Hunterdon Art Tour (THAT). “HERE/THERE” and “THERE/HERE” will run through May and an independent reception for the two galleries is scheduled for Saturday, MAY 21.
Frank May is the owner and curator of M Galleries, M Galleries PNA, and M Galleries Fellowship (mgalleries.org) in Washington, NJ and Basking Ridge, NJ.

A Fistful of Drawings is a special exhibition paying homage to Sergio Leone’s films coinciding with a performance by Arthur Vint featuring works by film-score composer Ennio Morricone.
A Fistful of Drawings, based on a graphic memoir of the same name, weaves together Ciardiello’s Italian family history and the mythology of the American West while paying homage to Leone’s films and the classic Westerns of the ’50s and ’60s. Ciardiello’s sinuous ink line and vivid watercolors illuminate the oversized characters that dominated the cinematic American West ― featuring John Ford, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Claudia Cardinale, Sophia Loren, and many more.
PLEASE NOTE: the exhibition will not be open to the public between April 11 – 29 while ArtYard’s gallery is closed.

Hunterdon Art Teachers – HATs!
We are incredibly honored and excited to be a part of THAT. We represent a cohort of Hunterdon County High School Art Teachers. It goes without saying that THAT’s mission is at the core of what we try to do every day in the classroom… cultivate awareness and recognition for and of the arts. We believe that being a good teacher is an art form in and of itself. But each of us is dedicated to being a teaching artist. We are potters, painters, sculptors, and photographers. We question, explore, interpret, and sometimes just make. Our art informs our teaching in a way that no textbook can. We are busy people and we struggle to make time for our art. The inclusion of our art in this show is a celebration of all the hard work we do to stay artistically connected and committed to the process. We thank THAT for their work and their support of our programs.

Greetings from Carolyn Thow, President, Friends of Whittemore
Whittemore is at its core, a nature center. The earth, the soil, plant life, the physical land is the heart and soul of WCCC. At WCCC, actual physical seeds take root and grow. THAT is, as well “planting its own seeds”, connecting artists who live and work throughout Hunterdon County with each other and the community.
Our 180-acre preserve was bequeathed to Tewksbury Township by our beloved Helen A. Whittemore. She was a nature lover and diarist who wanted her land and house to be preserved so that others may be awed by the natural world and inspired by its beauty to preserve it.
Our preserve includes Whittemore House, Whittemore Meadows and 11 miles of trails for hiking, dog walking, and exploring, photographing and painting nature. Trails traverse mainly wooded areas with wetlands, ravines, and hilly terrain. The preserve also serves as the perfect stage for birders and nature lovers to view local avian species and other wildlife.
How does the beauty of Whittemore inspire you? We are so excited about the partnerships we have forged and the programming we have lined up. From talented painters, certified master gardeners, award winning musicians, children’s camps, environmentalists, and a whole host of talented professionals and enthusiasts, there are so many ways to explore the beauty of our own backyard. We can’t wait to see you!
