Mark de Mos to premiere in Lyndhurst
LYNDHURST (Dec. 2, 2010) — The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s flyway gallery will host an exhibit of watercolors and pastels by local artist Mark de Mos and his students during December and January. The show, “Mark de Mos and Friends,” runs Tuesday, Dec. 7 to Jan. 28. A reception for the artists is scheduled for noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 12.
“My goal, as an artist, is to produce art that is alive, not static and that creates a drama, a feeling, a slice of life,” said De Mos, a Morristown resident. “As I paint I react to what is on the paper, and I can see the interesting color and tonal elements that will make it come to life.”
The exhibit features works by De Mos and his students — Anita Adelman, Keiko Matsuura, Tomoko Sugihara, Myrle Scott, Dottie Glen, Jane Stein, Erola Pellegrino and Joy Xie.
The gallery is located in the Meadowlands Environment Center in DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. DeKorte Park encompasses 1 square mile of wetlands, nature trails and water views — framed by the New York City skyline — and is a great place for bird watching and enjoying nature in general.
