WHRHS Art Teacher to Exhibit Seen and Heard, at the Sandy Bennett Art Gallery inside the Bergen Performing Arts Center

WARREN, NJ - Watchung Hills Regional High School fine arts teacher, and emerging find artist Kate Griffin is exhibiting 16 original paintings in her solo show, Seen and Heard, at the Sandy Bennett Art Gallery inside the Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, New Jersey.  Griffin’s work will be on display for the entire month of March.  The opening reception will be held on Tuesday, March 7th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm.

Seen and Heard is comprised of acrylic self-portraits of the artist, which represent different feminist themes.  These themes are explored both literally and figuratively and include, but are not limited to love, loss, betrayal, triumph and societal expectations as experienced from the female perspective. Each piece was directly inspired by modern music, and visitors are invited to listen to the songs while observing the works by scanning QR codes with their smartphones.  The songs used to create these works were all written and performed by female musicians, some of whom include Sara Bareilles, KT Tunstall, Margaret Glaspy and Alanis Morissette.  This series was chosen to be displayed during the month of March as to coincide with Women’s History Month.

Ms. Griffin graduated from New Jersey City University with her B.A. in Drawing & Painting and Teaching Certificate in 2009, and from Kean University with a Masters in Studio Art in 2015.  Since 2009, Griffin has been both teaching art and painting the theatrical sets at Watchung Hills Regional High School, and since 2012 has been working at the Summer Art program at the Visual Art Center of New Jersey in Summit.  You can learn more about the artist and her work at:

The Sandy Bennett Gallery is on the second floor of the Bergen Performing Arts Center, located at 30 North Van Brunt Street, Englewood, New Jersey, 07631.  Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 11:00AM to 4:00 PM, and Saturday from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.  All artwork on display is for sale, a portion of which will support the Bergen Performing Arts Center
