Morris Arts' Gallery at 14 Maple opens SEEING THE UNSEEN Thursday, March 28, 2019 • 12:00 AM - 12:00 AM • ,
Morris Arts and the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation opened the Gallery at 14 Maple's twenty first exhibit entitled SEEING THE UNSEEN. The Exhibition Committee and guest curator Greg Leshé selected works created by ten outstanding artists (painting, mixed media, photography, sculpture, collage, and digital art) for display at the Gallery, a distinctive space located on the 3rd floor of the LEED certified “green” building at 14 Maple Ave., Morristown. The exhibit features works by a diverse and distinguished group of artists, many of whom have also had careers as curators, documentary photo journalists, and artists deeply concerned by injustice. The ten artists featured in this show include Jeffrey Campbell (Wanaque), Patricia Cazorla (New York), Angeles Cossio (Jersey City), Hanna von Goeler (Montclair), Grace Graupe-Pillard (Keyport), Tian Hui (South Orange), Ed Kashi (Montclair) , Nancy Saleme (New York), Nyugen Smith (Jersey City), and Wendel White (Galloway). Each artist brings a unique perspective to the theme of seeing the unseen, depicting people and aspects of our world that often remain “invisible” in our society. Guest Curator Greg Leshé adds the following insight about the exhibit: "Within the show’s compass I regard the artwork as the beacon, the lighthouse, the signaler-object of the unseen, transmitting a critical light, projecting warning rays while asserting and proclaiming what’s out there that we can’t or choose not to see. These forces and realities pose a danger to an individual, a community, an environment, an ethnic group, a nation – and, if ignored or left untended, will imperil some level of our collective humanity." Through these artists’ eyes, we visualize the beauty and poignancy of migrant farm workers, people who survived extended detention, political imprisonment, or torture as well as the working poor, tangible emblems of racism and, ultimately, our shared humanity. It is at once an exhibit of great beauty and profound awareness – making the viewer mindful of the truly important and fundamental matters in our world. Morris Arts gratefully acknowledges support for this exhibit from the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation. The exhibit is open to the public Monday-Friday from 10am to 4pm and by appointment, and will remain on display until August 21, 2019.. Visit www.morrisarts.org or call (973) 285-5115 for additional information, including the exhibit catalogue which contains details and sale prices for all works. The Gallery at 14 Maple is a barrier-free facility. Individuals needing special accommodation should contact Tom Werder at (973) 285-5115, x 11 or [email protected]

The vocal harmonies are powerfully evident as ever, as is the energy, the finely-honed songwriting, the penchant for humour and the twinkling eyes.

We will stop at several vantage points as we circle the marsh and check the wooded area for early migrants. In April we may encounter a number of newly-arrived wetland birds: Herons, American Bittern and Virginia Rail are all possible. Wood Duck nests at the Celery Farm and other waterfowl species are usually present. We will also watch for passerine migrants including Eastern Phoebe, swallows, Marsh Wren and Palm Warbler. Surprises might include a Wilson's Snipe or Water Pipit. Parts of the trail may be wet to muddy so waterproof footgear is recommended.

Dr. K's Motown Review Saturday, June 29, 2019 • 08:00 PM - 12:00 AM • Hackettstown,NJ
2019 Fundraiser for the Hackettstown Rotary! Without a doubt, The Motown Sound has left an indelible stamp on the heart, soul and mind of several generations of fans worldwide. Over the years many of the artist and writers responsible for bringing to the world this incredible body of work has passed on. The music however, lives on through movies, radio, television commercials, collectible CD's, dance halls, weddings and karaoke clubs. It's not just the songs but the memories associated with them that have forever imprinted the Motown Sound in the hearts and souls of music fans. Without even consciously realizing it, we all know every lyric, melody and instrumental phrases associated with the songs. So much so that if a live band plays the songs and leaves out any of these memorable licks, we know it and subconsciously add it in ourselves. That brings us to Paul Korman and his visionary quest to create the ultimate Motown tribute band. *Not included in Flex Pass!*
William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play Wednesday, July 3, 2019 • 08:00 PM - 12:00 AM • ,
If you thought The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was a wild ride, then this “lost play” will knock your socks off! Rowdy, rollicking, zany, silly and irreverent, this is a great production to introduce youngsters to Shakespeare in madcap fashion. Enjoy watching Shakespeare get “roasted” in this wacky spoof as you sit under the stars and witness every character the Bard ever wrote go crashing into each other! We will once again be offering FREE tickets to young people 18 and under, and discounted tickets for customers of Bank of America — our long-time sponsor of the Outdoor Stage.

Summer Fest: Nunsense Thursday, July 11, 2019 • 07:30 PM - 12:00 AM • HACKETTSTOWN,NJ
Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.” Here we meet Reverend Mother Regina, a former circus performer; Sister Mary Hubert, the Mistress of Novices; a streetwise nun from Brooklyn named Sister Robert Anne; Sister Mary Leo, a novice who is a wannabe ballerina; and the delightfully wacky Sister Mary Amnesia, the nun who lost her memory when a crucifix fell on her head. Featuring star turns,tap and ballet dancing, an audience quiz, and comic surprises, this show has become an international phenomenon. With more than 5000 productions worldwide, it has been translated into 21 languages. Book, music and lyrics by Dan Goggin "A hail of fun and frolic- Nunsense, like the holy mother church, is a bona fide institution." - The New York Times

The Rainmaker Wednesday, July 31, 2019 • 07:30 PM - 12:00 AM • ,
The 1957 award-winning film, starring Burt Lancaster and Katherine Hepburn, was based on this great American stage classic, as was the musical, 110 in the Shade. Author N. Richard Nash calls the play a romantic comedy but it is so much more. Set in rural, dust-bowl America, it is about a parched land desperate for rain, and the tough but lonely people who live there, thirsting for love. This is a play about yearning, family, hope, and the magic that sometimes pours down on us from the unlikeliest of sources.

A whole new generation of children has arrived since we last did Neil Bartlett’s whimsical and moving adaptation of this holiday classic. This tale speaks to every generation and to people of all beliefs, and joyously celebrates the priceless value of good will and generosity of spirit toward our fellow “voyagers.” This version uses a small ensemble of actors to bring an abundance of animate and inanimate characters to life, as the despicable Ebenezer Scrooge encounters the haunting spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.
