Art Show at the Train Station - April 20th

 

It's Springtime at the Train Station and time to begin our outdoor art shows and trunk shows featuring local artists and artisans.  This Saturday, April 20th, we are featuring fine artist Bryan Collins who grew up here in Oradell.  Here is Bryan a few weeks ago painting right here at the station.

Born in Englewood, NJ, Bryan was raised in a creative environment. His parents (who still live here in Oradell) encouraged his artistic endeavors since early childhood.  Collins graduated from Pratt Institute where he studied Art and Design.  He assimilated a wide variety of visual disciplines such as painting, drawing, graphic design, typography, and photography.

 

Although his work is precise, intelligent, and formally arranged in a contemporary realist style, he does not claim to have found a new way of seeing, rather his eye is "democratic". He integrates the visually democratic eye of a young American with a penchant for magnifying tiny details. Thus, what he paints are little comedies rather than life on a grand scale; he ingeniously delights in the wonders of the commonplace.  His aesthetic intentions, however, are sophisticated and deliberate. His images appear as if they have been awaiting a spectator to awaken their magic.

 

So  come join us this Saturday for coffee and cookies in the morning or wine and cheese in the late afternoon.  Bryan will be here from 10am to 6pm to greet you and talk about his work.

 

See you at the station,
