Hi, Ing!

I’ve been invited to participate in this year’s Newark Open Doors (officially) and will be putting on a group show entitled ‘Newark International’. I was hoping you might be interested in participating with 1-4 pieces. Let me know!

All the best,

Charley

Hi Charley,

It was nice to hear from you.  Thanks for your earlier response on “Honor Killing”

I will be glad to participate in your group show entitled ‘Newark International’.  If you do not mind I would like to have my finished peace project artwork exhibit.  I posted most of them on my Home page website if you would like to view them. 

John says thanks for your acknowledgement on his sister passing.  Please let me know how your preparation for the exhibition is progressing.  Where will the exhibition be held?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Best,

Ing

Hi, Ing!

Thank you so much, Ing! It means a lot to me for you to participate in the exhibit. Yes, absolutely please bring the peace project. The exhibit will be in a commercial storefront on Broad Street, most likely one I’m assigned by Newark Arts Council (probably 744 Broad) or one I have in reserve at 889 Broad (diagonally across the street from City Hall). I will keep everyone updated on all developments.

One quick question: Can you please send me a picture of the Gandhi piece(s)? I need it for the Newark Arts Council’s promotional materials for the festival. Thanks! – Charley

Hi Charley,

I am glad to be part of your exhibition, thanks for including John and I.

The following are the things that I would like you to consider which is related to the exhibition:

1.       My Gandhi’s artwork: I have different versions; please visit the following link to view some of them: http://ingpeaceproject.com/2016/01/13/gandhi-peace-and-nonviolence-for-the-world/

2.       For the artwork that I would like to display at your exhibition; please visit the following link to view some of them: http://ingpeaceproject.com/

3.      If it is possible I would like to have a table or easel for my Peace Poster for people to write their comments on “What does Peace mean to you?” on the reception day. 

Please let me know of your decisions.

Thanks,

Ing

Hi, Ing,

Thanks very much for the link; it was the Gandhi #4 I was looking for. I’m already familiar with the project and you know I love your art work. Also, it won’t be a problem at all for the table and easels on the reception day. Feel free to contact me at any time with any other questions or concerns.

It took me a while to be able to complete this project.  I spent some time to compose this second finished artwork for the Peace Project.  The writings were the comments from the people on “What does Peace mean to you?” at the Washington Park and some of the people who participated in the Creation Nation Art and Peace Parade on Sunday, October 23, 2011, Newark, New Jersey, USA.

760 Northfield Avenue, West Orange, NJ 07052

Reception on Saturday, April 10, 2016

Joanne Leone is a great contemporary artist and our good friend.  She invited us to the reception at an art exhibition that displayed her work along with the art work of other artists.  This exhibition is unique and important because the central artist of the show, Jacob Landau, was a legendary master teacher and artist, of Joanne and all the other artists in the show.  Jacob Landau’s artwork exhibited with six of his students, Eleta Caldwell, Gladys Grauer, Joanne Leone, Jack McGovern, George Schorr, and Myron Wasserman.

Joanne always tells us how proud and privileged she is to have studied with Jacob Landau.  I have asked her to write her experiences with this special art teacher, which I will post in this project when she finishes her composition.  We enjoyed the art show and were very glad to see some friends. The following is some of the photographs that I took at the reception:

   Joanne was telling her friends and the viewers about how her teacher, Jacob Landau, advised her about how to visualize and approach the start of a painting.

Dr. David Herrstron, president of the Jacob Landau Institute discussed the Holocaust Suite lithographs

Hi Joanne,

It was nice talking to you on the phone.  Thank you so much for wanting to write your experience with your art teacher Jacob Landau.  The attachment is the incomplete project for you to see.  I will post it after I complete the project on my website, Blog page.  I will send you the link after I post the project.

Please let me know what you think about it.  Your recommendations will be very helpful.  I hope to see you after John comes back from Wales.

All the best,
