Images of Cranbury

David Nissen.  May 3 Reception.  Images of Cranbury
We in Cranbury have been fortunate to preserve the scale and context of our historic village, its agricultural and natural periphery, and the complex and lively community it sustains.
Lee and I have lived here for almost 4 decades, raised our two children, and shared in the cultural and governance organizations of the community.  I have always taken photos, “snapshots” if you will, of events and travels.  But since retiring from the NY commute 5 years ago, I have devoted much of my time and energy to photography, to give my right-brain a chance..

This exhibit presents some 40 images of Cranbury from a decade of photographs.  I hope they evoke for you some of the essence of our community, as they do for us.

Sumner Projects

professional Sumi-e artist Pamela Sumner is offering a week-long ink painting retreat in Maine from September 12th  - September 19th.  The detailed information about the retreat can be found at  The focus will be on painting pine.
Ginny felt that the Cranbury Arts Council might wish to let its members and supporters know about this event, since many artists may be interested in learning more about Sumi-e technique.  The retreat promises to be a fun and informative week with all meals and accomodations included in the cost.  
If you have any questions, you can contact me or reach out directly to Pamela.  Her contact information is on the website.
