After the Storm: New Photos and Paintings by Lindsay Holeman will be on display in the meeting room at the Highland Park Public Library through November 2017.
A born Jersey girl, Lindsay Holeman is a self-taught artist who moved to Highland Park two years ago. She paints in acrylic, water color, and mixed media. She also enjoys photography. Her art has been included in the 2012 Memory exhibit at the Ewing Municipal Complex as part of the Creative Collective Art Group. Her work has also been featured at Art Space in Long Branch, and in private collections throughout Mercer County.
She earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Goucher College in MD and is in the process of completing her Master’s Degree in Education at Rider University.
“An elementary school teacher, Lindsay hopes to inspire children and teens to create art for self-expression and to raise awareness about significant issues affecting the community,” Lindsay said. “As a behavioral consultant for Maxim Healthcare Services, where I worked with children and teens with emotional and behavioral issues, art therapy played a crucial role in their coping abilities and in their healing.”
She currently teaches with Fresh Theatre Arts, a local children’s theatre company.
