Judy Weinberg, a Metuchen artist, will exhibit her whimsical art photos at the Highland Park Public Library from October 3 to November 25, 2015. Her images printed on pillows will be in the main hall display case. An art reception will be held in the meeting room on Saturday, October 3 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Judy Weinberg is volunteer co-chair at Transformations Gallery located in the historic Old Franklin Schoolhouse in Metuchen. She was raised in Highland Park and became interested in photography at the age of 11 while participating in a photo club at her Middle School. She creates art photographs using nature, food, found objects, and architecture as her subjects. Sometimes the artist elaborates on a theme by creating series photos, while other times composing “scenes” by combining unusual objects not usually seen together to create a piece.
“I wanted to experiment with my images to see how they would work when printed on different mediums, while also creating art that people can take with them. Printing on metal has allowed the images to hang both indoors and outdoors, canvas adds a subtle texture, while printing on pillows allows my work to still be seen in the home – but now it’s off the wall.”
