SUMMIT, NJ - The artwork of Will Cardell, Oak Knoll School's creative arts director, will be displayed at Summit's Talis Gallery beginning with an opening reception July 21, from 5-7 p.m., and continuing through Labor Day.

Cardell, of Summit, who teaches arts courses at the all-girls middle and high school, will have five landscape works featured in the exhibit.

“Artistically, I enjoy painting the landscape because it challenges me to put down brush stokes that can visually capture the varied textures in nature,” said Cardell adding, “I am attracted to landscape painting because of its rich tradition, from the Baroque Dutch Masters to the English Romantics to the American Artists of the Hudson River School. In all of their works, these great painters uncovered the sublime in even the simplest natural forms. There is a sense of awe we all experience when surrounded by our natural environment and, when the artist chooses to project that in his work, it is a reminder of our humble role in this vast earthly milieu.”

The Talis Gallery is located within Berkshire Hathaway Home Services at 392 Springfield Avenue.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
