Nilson Gallery

The Nilson Gallery features the work of New Jersey artists, including the New Jersey Emerging Artists Series, a unique and exciting forum for NJ artists who have never had a one-person show of their work in our State. The artists selected for this Series represent the diversity of talent in the State and demonstrate their creativity in a wide variety of media. Gallery talks scheduled during the exhibitions offer artists the opportunity to share their stories and provide insight about what inspires and drives them in the creative process.

Current Exhibition

delia-gina-beaconThe New Jersey Emerging Artists Series continues this summer, from July 11 to August 10, with an exhibition of paintings by artist Gina Delia.

Gina states, “Ephemeral Light is an observation of light and darkness, and how these two conflicting forces coalesce in a dance of curiosity and emotion. The relationship between the audience and this body of work is of utmost importance. It is what the viewer carries with them, and reflects into this work, that makes the images all the more powerful. To this end, I make it a point not to disclose the actual subjects within my images; I am instead fascinated by how each piece evolves in the viewer’s eyes. Constant themes within my work include perception, identity, the subconscious, dreams, memories and interpreted reality.”

Selected artists give an Artist’s Talk during their exhibition, offering the public insight into their artistic process. All opening receptions & Gallery Talks are free and open to the public. Artist’s Gallery Talk with Gina Delia, Wednesday July 23, 2014 from 7 – 8:00 pm. Gina Delia will share insights on his work in a discussion at the Museum.
