Victor Grasso: Fable
September 13, 2013-January 5, 2014
In Fable, Cape May artist Victor Grasso presents 13 masterfully rendered oil paintings that re-imagined legendary narratives. The paintings are dark, contemporary and slick, as Grasso combines objects in unexpected ways. Myths and legends including Crazy Horse, Icarus, and Aphrodite are presented not as literal interpretations of storied characters, but conceptual representations as Grasso chooses to see them.

Ballet Mechanique, 1924
The video on view, entitled Ballet Mecanique, is a piece composed in 1924 by George Antheil. It is a precursor to the contemporary works in the exhibition Noise@Noyes. Born in Trenton, New Jersey, George Antheil was known as The Bad Boy of Trenton. The music, written to accompany the Dadaist abstract art film by Fernand Leger and Dudley Murphy, was scored for xylophones, bass drums, electric bells, airplane propellers, live musicians and synchronized player pianos. The video on view is a remastered version of the film with Antheil’s cacophonous music.
Victor Grasso: Beyond the Paint
Video producer Frank Weiss and Bill Horin of ArtC present a unique understanding of artist Victor Grasso in a new film about the artist and his work. On view at The Noyes Museum of Art is a short trailer of the soon to be released film.

Ocean City artist Kim Wieland has spent his life creating art using his travels as inspiration. Growing up in the rural countryside, Weiland studied with artists Anthony Trezza and Pat Witt. He attended Tyler College of Art in Philadelphia. To continue his education, he moved to Italy to study for one year at The Tyler School in Rome. Soon travel became an obsession and Weiland continued sketching and painting his way throughout Italy, Northern Europe, Yugoslavia, and Tunisia.
After graduating from Tyler, Weiland moved to Ocean City, NJ. The serene influences of the coast found a stronghold in his style and he began to work almost exclusively in watercolor. The transparent qualities of the medium, responded well to the study of color and light as Weiland began to record the ever-changing image of the coast. Traveling further along the coast saw a resurgence of his oil paintings and Weiland began to expand his imagery from the Mid-Atlantic, painting his way from Maine, to Newport, to Mount Dessert, and continuing southwards to the Chesapeake Bay and South Carolina. Through fellow painter and friend, E.B. Lewis, Weiland was introduced to the city of Charleston, and thus to the catalyst for his many low country paintings.
Today, the scope of Weiland's paintings has expanded from landscape to portraiture, however the sea is still a dominating force. Paintings and limited edition prints of Weiland's works are displayed in galleries from Connecticut to Charleston. In 1999, he achieved the status of signature member in the American Society of Marine Artist. Weiland serves on board of directors of The Ocean City Arts Center, where he also teaches.
RAW a Juried Photography Exhibition
November 7 - January 31
Opening Reception: November 21, 2013
Kramer Hall presents Raw 2nd Annual Juried Photography Exhibition. Hundreds of images were submitted and the top 40 were chosen for the group exhibition focusing on images that pertain to New Jersey’s raw spirit and capture the beauty and diversity of New Jersey’s lands, people, animals, water and nature. Immerse yourself in exceptional photography that delves into the blended culture of rural & urban life and landscapes that we love and know as New Jersey.
The diverse photographs in the exhibition were selected by photographer and Associate Professor of Photography at Rowan University, Markham Keith Adams. He takes a fundamental approach to photography centering on “formalism”—light and shadow, line and shape, space and composition. Adams has taught at various schools including: Rowan University, New York University, Pratt Institute, Bergen Community College, among others.
Coming soon to Atlantic City, at Fairmount & Mississippi Avenues: The Noyes Arts Garage Stockton College. The Arts Garage will bring a new arts district to Atlantic City with a mission to promote education, provide resources for emerging artists, and enrich the community.
