Spatial Reasoning: Abstraction and Architecture from the Noyes Permanent Collection
January 22 - May 1, 2016
Why represent a building abstractly? Concept and meaning of schematized space are explored by integrating them with the space until interpretation and subject are inseparable. The mediated experience of the structure becomes part of the structure itself. This selection of works from the Noyes Permanent Collection will explore constructed space as a subject for figurative art and the impermanent perception of permanent structures.

March is Youth Art Month (YAM). What is Youth Art Month?
The Council for Art Education (CFAE) administers Youth Art Month at the national level. Festivities take place annually, traditionally each March, to celebrate visual arts for grades K – 12.

Youth Art Month also provides a forum for recognizing skills developed through visual arts experiences that are not possible in other curriculum subjects.

Organized by Lisa Confora (Atlantic County YAM chair – Atlantic County Special Services School District) and Kathy Nichols (Cape May County YAM chair – Margret Mace Elementary).
