Fred Winslow Noyes, Jr.: b. 4.19.1905 – d. 6.2.1987 

Artist and ardent collector of art, antiques and folk art, Fred Noyes was born in Philadelphia in 1905. As a young man, he attended the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts. At the invitation of Albert Barnes, Fred began studying at the Barnes Foundation. The Barnes allowed Fred to develop perception and art theory skills, which he later applied to his compositions. Noyes’ early works of the mid-1930s consist largely of landscapes and still lifes, serene, yet moody, and reminiscent of the works of Daniel Garber, a contemporary figure among Pennsylvania Impressionists. 

Following a move to New Jersey in 1933, Noyes seemed to be inspired by Paul Cezanne’s analytical flat planes, as well as the bright primitive color and passionate brush strokes employed by Fauvist artists Andre Derain and Henri Matisse. In the early ‘70s Fred’s artistic style changed dramatically. His new abstract works were vivacious, rhythmic and colorful, conveying the joy of life, evocative of the work of Spanish artist Joan Miro. Filled with lush color and whimsical forms, these paintings were singularly Fred Noyes and uniquely southern New Jersey.

Today, Noyes' art continues to inspire and his folk art and decoy collection enhances the public’s appreciation of New Jersey’s artistry.


PAINT HAMMONTON: PLEIN-AIR EXHIBITION

Noyes Museum Gallery I, Hammonton

The 9th Annual Plein-Air Event: Paint Hammonton took place on Saturday, May 6, 2017. This widely anticipated event has previously attracted artists from Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia in addition to many talented New Jersey artists. Painters set up their easels at locations of their choice all around the town of Hammonton to capture the effects of natural light, quickly capturing a scene before it's gone. 

Judging the competition is award-winning artist and curator Phillip J. Carroll of the Perkins Center for the Arts in Moorestown and Collingswood, New Jersey. Cash prizes were awarded and all of the paintings created during the event are included in an exhibition that starts that evening and runs through July 30 at the Noyes Gallery at Stockton University's Kramer Hall in downtown Hammonton at 30 Front Street.

Bring Back the Memories. Amersfoort, Netherlands.

Bring Back the Memories. Amersfoort, Netherlands.

As a participant on the Stockton Study Tour to the Netherlands and France in March 2017, Casey had the unique opportunity to travel with three survivors who were hidden children during the Holocaust. She traced the life stories of these survivors by visiting cities and locations that played a critical role in their survival. For some, their story had been shared many times with students of the Holocaust and genocide. For others, this was the first time they exposed themselves to the emotion of returning to what they once called home. Her photography tells their stories and provides testament to their resilience and strength.

Cuff was selected by the Stockton Board of Trustees Fellowship for the Distinguished Students program. This initiative, established in 1986, supports student-led projects of undergraduate research or creative work in keeping with the educational philosophy and mission of Stockton University. Cuff used this opportunity to create Memories Left in our Hands, in an effort to capture the raw emotion of what it means to confront the realities of one’s past. With her project, she aims to examine the ways that human beings are capable of treating one another after establishing them as the “other”. Her Fellowship work is a testament not only to the amazing resiliency of human beings faced with unimaginable horrors, but also to the dark past we must continue to recollect and progress from.

"As our community of living Holocaust survivors is rapidly fading away, it has become increasingly important for us to continue their stories. In Western Europe, Maud Dahme, Leo Ullman, and Dan Kochavi left their memories of the Holocaust in my hands. Through these photographs, I leave them in yours."

MICHAEL V. PASCUCCI: SCULPTURE

Noyes Gallery I, The Noyes Arts Garage of Stockton University, A.C.

  • Exhibition dates: May 4 - July 2, 2017
  • Opening Reception: Second Friday, May 12, 6 - 8 pm
  • Education Guide

Michael Pascucci works in a figurative abstract style that emphasizes visual metaphors relating to the human condition. He believes that his sculptures are essentially romantic because they metaphorically connect to core feelings and thus enhance an awareness of self.

There are times Art triggers our imagination and becomes a means for transcendental feelings about our universal connectedness. As a sculptor, I am inspired by the wonder and awe of how shapes and forms are assembled and integrated into the incredible well-structured and beautiful designs that we find in Nature. I endeavor to create objects that are beautiful and that appeal to our innate sense of beauty. Ultimately, we learn or feel from the works that there is more about being human than meets the eye.

TRANSFORM: WORKS BY ELLEN HANAUER

There are times in our lives when the floor drops unexpectedly from under out feet and propels us on a dark journey. This human condition of loss often feels surreal and affects each of us in profound and unexpected ways. This is a painful process, as we descend into denial, anger, negotiation and despair. We find ourselves adrift, our compasses malfunction, and we are left disoriented and despondent. Finally, there is acquiescence, the inflection point where healing commences. 

This exhibition is an emotional recollection of my own transformation, which has taken me from the abyss to a place where potential is limitless. I have chosen to use fiber as my medium ,as it brings an unthreatening quality to this provocative and sometimes uncomfortable subject. Emerging from the darkness has helped me to see the possibilities that can only be discovered through the path of deconstruction and reconstruction.
