Art for Sale is Framed and Supports D&R Greenway’s Mission


Enchantment is a spell that comes over us, an aura of fantasy and emotion that can settle on the heart.

The soul has an absolute unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them, like the body needs food and the mind needs thought.

An avid watcher of light and its effect on form, Jada’s photography practice incorporates aspects of various disciplines. The use of sculptural creatures, and store bought toys set in  tableaux vivant make difficult ideas somewhat more approachable. The intention being to inspire people to consider their ethical stance towards the treatment of animals, the destruction of habitats and the preservation of our natural resources in the modern world.

It is her hope that in some way this work will inspire others to advocate for animals and the environment, whether it be in the form of volunteer work, donations to shelters or advocacy groups or just eating less meat.

A lifelong resident of New Jersey, Joe Kazimierczyk (Joe Kaz for short) lives on the Sourland Mountain near Neshanic Station and finds much of his inspiration in the area immediately surrounding his home.

Having always been drawn to the beauty of nature, Joe finds most of his subject matter on the hiking and bicycling trips that he loves to take – whether near his home, or further afield.

His painting is a natural extension of his wanderings and explorations of the countryside. His most recent work reflects his interest in exploring the mountains and forests of northern New Jersey and beyond.

Joe has earned his accolades as a self-taught artist and has been exhibiting his work extensively for over 15 years.

Silvère Boureau

When Silvère Boureau came from France in 1982, he was primarily an expressionist painter of the human form. However, the discovery of the American landscape and its interpretation by nineteenth century luminists opened a new vision on painting. Boureau sought to experience the wilderness first hand by hiking in remote areas in the backwoods of Maine, the Adirondack Mountains, and the Grand Canyon. To stand on a mountain top and look as far as the eye can see without encountering any mark of human intervention remains an exhilarating experience for him. Especially coming from western Europe where the hand of man on the landscape is omnipresent, the discovery of “wilderness” was a revelation.
