Caldwell University Art Therapy Program Showcases Spring Faculty Invitational
Feb 2 – Mar 31 all-day

The Caldwell University Art Therapy Programs Gallery is pleased to present the 2016 Spring Faculty Invitational exhibition located in Werner Hall, third floor at Caldwell University, 120 Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell, NJ.

The exhibition showcases the works of Judy Lapides, MA, an artist, teacher of art, and former Director of the Kent Place School Gallery in Summit and, Elizabeth Rundquist, ATR-BC, an art therapist practicing in the field for 26 years.  The works of both artists provide an opportunity to engage in observation of abstraction – a formalism where color, shape, line, and texture become subject.  Lapides work may be seen as a metaphor for the human body as well as the unconscious, where Rundquist’s work represents an accumulation of years recording her experience in the world.  Lapides and Rundquist are also Psychoanalysts. They were invited to showcase their oil paintings by Caldwell University art therapy faculty member, Annette Vaccaro, ATR-BC, LCSW. Their work is  on view now through March 2016.
