  • Paintings from the Studio in The Teiger Gallery

    The Teiger Gallery for the Studio Arts features the "Paintings from the Studio" exhibit by narrative painter Philemona Williamson. Williamson's art explores the tenuous bridge between adolescence and adulthood, encapsulating the intersection of innocence and experience at its most piercing and poignant moment. 

    Williamson has been exhibiting her work for over 25 years at the June Kelly Gallery in New York City and at the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey since 2017. She is the recipient of numerous awards and residencies including the Joan Mitchell Foundation, Pollock Krasner, National Endowment For The Arts, New York Foundation For The Arts and Millay Colony. She has served on the advisory board of the Getty Center for Education.

    Williamson's work has been shown in many solo and group exhibitions, and she is represented in numerous private and public collections, including The Montclair ArtMuseum, The Kalamazoo Art Institute, The Mint Museum of Art, Smith College Museum of Art, Hampton University Museum, Sheldon Art Museum, Mott-Warsh Art Collection, and AT&T. Her public works include fused-glass murals created for the MTA Arts in Transit Program at the Livonia Avenue Subway Station in Brooklyn, a poster for the MTA Poetry In Motion, and a mosaic mural in the Glenwood Campus School for the NYC School Authority. Williamson currently teaches painting at Pratt Institute and Hunter College in New York City.

    Gallery Hours: Saturdays, by appointment only.

  • The Curious Savage

    Location: Coraci Performance Hall
    Tickets can be reserved online through this link.

    Welcome to the Cloisters!

    Mrs. Savage has been left ten million dollars by her husband and wants to make the best use of it, despite her grown-up stepchildren’s efforts to get their hands on it. Knowing that they cannot get hold of the fortune, the stepchildren commit her to a sanatorium hoping to “bring her to her senses.”

    In the sanatorium Mrs. Savage gets to know many wonderful people and comes to realize that she will find happiness with them. She plans to spend the rest of her life as one of them, but when the doctor tells her there is no reason why she should remain, she hesitates to go out into a hard world where people seem ready to do anything for money.

    A high comedy, the audience is left with a feeling that kindness and affection have not been entirely lost in the world.

  • 19th Annual N.A. Community Art Exhibit: Food for Thought

    Newark Academy students, teachers, staff, alumni and parents are welcomed to submit their artwork for entry into the Food For Thought exhibition. will entice you to create a work of art for this annual exhibit.

    This theme can be approached in a number of ways. As subject matter, both the words Food and Thought present many possibilities. A still life immediately comes to mind, and enticing images of food will likely fill much of the gallery. But a completely different take might be one that is more conceptual. This is a genre of art that is based primarily on an idea or thought as the essence of the art. So, rather than focus on what the art looks like, it asks the viewer to focus on the artist’s thinking behind it. Those kind of pieces would also be most welcome submissions to
    this community exhibit.
