The Artist Framer will be featuring artist Jeri Greenberg, of Mountainside, beginning Nov.16. Approximately 20 pieces of landscapes, portraits and still lifes will be exhibited inside the exalted purple walled gallery, located at 17 North Ave. East in Cranford.
The solo show, "Expressions in Pastel," will remain on display throughout the month of December. An artist's reception will be held on Friday, Dec. 7 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Artist Framer’s owner Stefanie Lalor said, “Jeri takes ordinary objects and makes them beautiful. I enjoy her still lifes and florals for their abstract color and shapes, which build and are the foundation for her subjects.”
Mrs. Greenberg, who is a graduate of Parsons School of Design said, “I see beauty in an apple, a stem of a tomato, the sheer luminosity of an onion’s skin. I see a story in a woman’s body language, or the way a storm roils up the ocean. Nothing is the same, nothing is static; the air is charged, whether I’m doing a portrait or a plein air landscape.”
The artist has more than two decades of commissioned experience in fashion, portraits and landscapes. Mrs. Greenberg also teaches classes at the Westfield Adult School and at the Artist Framer, where painting and drawing are taught in the gallery’s workshop space.
Ms. Greenberg has received many awards, notably this year from the Connecticut Pastel Society. She enjoys receiving feedback about her pastels, which can also be seen at www.jerigreenbergart.com.
