Edison, NJ – The Edison Arts Society (EAS) announced that members of the society will be sharing their art on Adirondack chairs which will be displayed on the various lawns of the artists and other properties around the township in hopes to generate more exposure for EAS and interested members.
The chairs will also be available for purchase. The funds from the purchases will go toward creating a public sculpture garden at Papaianni Park, a 15-acre municipal park between Central Avenue and Municipal Boulevard, and the society’s annual scholarships given to students at Middlesex County College, Edison High School and John P. Stevens High School, according to the organization.
Gloria Dittman, President of EAS, said that she is excited about EAS’ upcoming fundraiser and pointed to the projects that the society is working on. She said artist Fernando Silva is currently working on repairing a steel sculpture, which was unveiled at Papaianni Park last summer, which suffered some damage due to the weather elements. She explained that EAS recently received a generous grant from Investors Bank, which will go towards fixing that sculpture.
The Edison Arts Society also has a number of exhibits and events lined up. This month the solo exhibits of John Erdreich and Lauren Rabinowitz are showcased at the EAS Gallery in the Municipal Building. In August, the EAS Gallery will showcase the solo exhibit of Rick Bachman. In October, the second Perspective II Group exhibit from students from Triple C Housing and Project Pieces at John P. Stevens High School will be held at the EAS Gallery. In November, a solo exhibit of Maryann Martin will be showcased and in December, a solo exhibit of Jayant Shroff will be showcased.
