"Second Sunday" featured local artists will be painter Patrica Neville, jeweler Cindy Mahoney Crawford and photographer Christine Peck.
"Second Sundays" will continue throughout the year so the community can enjoy meeting all of our artists and learn about their work," explains Diana Cutshall, manager of the gallery.
Featured artists as well as other artists from the Cooperative Gallery will be on hand to meet the public and discuss their work. Light refreshments will be served.
Patricia Neville, a native of Cape May County, studied art at York Academy of Arts and received her BFA in Art Education at Rowan University. She continues to take art workshops both locally and internationally. Her current series of oil paintings depict still-lifes reflecting her experience of nature based on the everyday findings along the beach and the bay.
Artist and teacher Cindy Mahoney Crawford received a BA in Fine Art with a focus on Drawing, Painting and Printmaking and a Masters in Education in Portland, Ore., before relocating to the Cape May area. Mahoney Crawford creates unique pieces of jewelry using a variety of materials including semi-precious stones, lucite, Swarovski crystals, glass, original photographs, cultured freshwater pearls and sterling silver.
Photographs by Christine Peck, local artist and optician, are her personal visual expressions of the world around us. Born and raised in Southern New Jersey, she was introduced to photography in high school and went on to study fine arts at Glassboro State College.
Since then, it has become a lifelong pursuit to capture the images that surround us and reproduce them in an artistic photographic form. Peck uses black and white photography to enhance details, such as in ancient architecture, while her color photographs capture nature’s broad spectrums of beauty.
