CALDWELL, NJ — A free event hosted by more than 20 individuals from the Center for Family Support (CFS) invites area residents to an Art Opening at The Caldwell Public Library from 6 to 8 p.m. on Sept. 8.

The CFS, founded in 1954, is a registered 501-c-3 charity committed to providing support and assistance to individuals with developmental and related disabilities and to the family members who care for them. It supports more than 1500 individuals in the NYC Metropolitan area and New Jersey in order to help them live the lives they want, respecting diversity, and individual choice.

By providing families with the support to help them stay together, CFS strives to enable individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to become productive members of their community.

The show will be on display throughout the month of September and can be viewed during Caldwell Public Library regular business hours: Monday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Wednesday from noon to 8 p.m.; and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.

“The art show itself focuses on the artists using art materials for the purpose of self expression; therefore we more focused on the process of art making,” said Christina Masur, CFS Art Therapist. “I’m so proud of the participants’ hard work.  Their art is truly an extension of themselves as individuals.”

Throughout September, more than 30 works of art will be on display, encompassing a variety of mixed media pieces including watercolor, tempera, acrylic, sculpture, and collage.  Descriptions about the artists’ work and their art making process will be shown with each piece.  

Additionally, the participants have prepared statements about their own work that will also be displayed next to their pieces so viewers can gain further understanding of their art process as well as their inspiration for each piece.

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.
