FEBRUARY 7 / Winter Exhibitions Celebration

This month, Art After Hours spotlights new exhibitions with two guest speakers, in addition to regular musical performances. The program is free and open to the public, and includes complimentary refreshments.

Exhibition Talks / 5:45 and 7pm
Christina Weyl, independent art historian, provides insight into Innovation and Abstraction: Women Artists and Atelier 17 at 5:45pm. The exhibition, which examines eight artists who worked at the legendary printmaking studio, was curated by Weyl and shown at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center on Long Island before traveling to the Zimmerli, where additional works by these artists were added from its own collection. At 7pm, photographer Terrence A. Reese (also known as TAR) discusses Reflections: Photographs of Iconic African Americans, his project that has spanned two decades and includes a book along with the exhibition. The Zimmerli’s presentation includes 65 of the black and white photographs depicting pioneers from a variety of fields who shaped American culture and history

Live Music / Sets at 5 and 8pm
Brandon Broderick is a musician and producer from central New Jersey. Each highly energetic performance is different, featuring folk, pop, rock, bluegrass, country, and indie genres, and both cover music and original material. Dubbed “the shredder” by others in the local music community for his fast-paced and frenetic playing style, Broderick’s sets feature almost no breaks between songs. 

Slide Jam returns in March!

In addition, special guests and events enliven these evenings with unique and engaging presentations.
