Phyllis C. London
March 4 - May 10, 2015
The paintings of Phyllis C. London capture the forces of nature through exacting observations of light, shadow, color, and composition. In this selection of work London presents quiet watercolor paintings of familiar scenes along the south Jersey coast, including a clammer, a cutter and jetties. Her acrylic paintings are strong in design and color referencing steamy tropical destinations. Palm trees and beach scenes offer the viewer an immediate escape. London’s art is inspired by her creative family. Her father comes from a long line of New Jersey boat builders and her mother was a painter, wood carver, and textile artist. After high school she traveled extensively in Europe and upon her return began her career. In this exhibition London presents watercolors and acrylic paintings of her recent work. Her paintings hang in private, public and corporate collections across the country. Throughout her career, she has been published in numerous magazines and has earned many awards and commendations.

The Links 46th Annual Black History Month Art Exhibit
Featuring the Art of Ted Ellis
February 2 – March 29, 2015
The Links, Incorporated, is one of the oldest and largest volunteer service organizations of women who are committed to enriching, sustaining and ensuring the culture and economic survival of African Americans and other persons of African ancestry.
Artist Ted Ellis records history and all aspects of American culture and heritage in his work. He grew up and was educated in New Orleans, a city known for its history, style, and artistic exuberance. This backdrop inspired his to capture the essence of the subjects of his childhood in the glory of their rich cultural heritage. The artist refers to his unique style of painting as “Tedism” a blend of Impressionism and Folk Art. Ellis is a self-taught artist, influenced heavily by the impressionistic painters of Europe and the raw innocence of Folk artists here in the United States. Ellis, who currently resides in Friendswood, TX, has been recognized as an artist of historical importance. Several of his paintings are in the permanent collection of the DuSable Museum, McKenna Museum, The Free People of Color Museum and the Amistad Research Center. www.tellisart.com
