Yesterday was the opening reception for my Spark of Creation Art Show at the beautiful Oakeside Mansion. The show runs from now till the end of August, so you have plenty of time to catch it before its gone.
The exhibit can be viewed Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Evening viewings by appointment only at the Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center, 240 Belleville Ave. in Bloomfield NJ.
I was so honored to have friends, family and members of the public stop by to see the show. I am grateful for all the support.
I am thrilled to announce a new art exhibit – Spark of Creation – to be held in August at the Oakeside Bloomfield Cultural Center in Bloomfield NJ. This will be my second exhibit at Oakeside, but my first show of original paintings.
Spark of Creation is a series of black and white abstract paintings that speak to that single moment of creation when one drop of paint reaches the canvas and spreads outwards in undulations of expression and creativity – explosive, sometimes directionless, but always intense.
I finished the entire series – 18 paintings of varying sizes – in a a few short months. For me the collection serves as a metaphor for both the inner and outward universe that exists for each of us – expanding, contracting and ever changing.
The exhibit will run from Aug. 1 through Aug. 31 and can be viewed Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Evening viewings by appointment only.
An opening reception will be held Thursday, August 13th from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Oakeside where I get to meet and greet with the public. Stop by and enjoy the art along with some light refreshments.
In August of 2013 at Oakeside, I presented a series of black & white photographs of stone angels called “Never Alone.”
Just finished up another theater project for Gas Lamp Academy of Performing Arts (GLAPA). The Teen Musical Theater Project’s new show is ‘You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown: On Tour.’ The set pieces I painted will get a lot of exposure as they are brought to several different stages in Northern New Jersey.
Wednesday, December 10, 7 pm, and Saturday, December 13, 3 pm, at The Women’s Club of Glen Ridge;
Thursday, December 11, 7 p.m., at the Wayne YMCA; and
Sunday, December 14, 4 p.m., at Fletcher Hall in Montclair.
I am really excited to be working on the set pieces for Gas Lamp Academy of Performing Arts (GLAPA) teen musical theater project: GODSPELL.
This extremely professional and well directed production of Godspell will run Feb 7, 8 and 9th in Glen Ridge at the Ridgewood Avenue School. All the set pieces will feature original art work by yours truly.
The highlight of the show will be this dove design I created. I just love how it turned out.
Pilvax Players Theater Company – an independent, Hungarian-American acting company – featured paintings by artist, Mark AJ Szep, in its recent production and world premier of MEGÖRÖKÍTVE (Eternalized) in New York (in Hungarian). The play was written by Maria Marton and directed by Timea Zsedely.
‘Eternalized’, a heartfelt comedy, will feature prints of Mark Szep’s original oil paintings including The Couple, Lost in Thought, Cosmic Sunburst, The Creature, Surrounded and Man’s Face.
