Current Exhibit

“Stories in Abstract” January through March

The Gallery-on-the-Boulevard will present a black and white photography exhibit titled “Stories in Abstract” by Union County photographer, visual artist and educator  Cintia Malhotra from January through March.

Cintia has taught workshops on digital imaging, was an adjunct professor for learning institutions in New Jersey, and has had her photography exhibited nationally, as well as many solo and group shows in New Jersey. She holds a BFA with a photography concentration and an MS in Graphic Communications Management from Kean University. She currently teaches at Columbia High School, Maplewood New Jersey.

Her equipment is simple… a digital camera (FujiFilm x100f, Canon Mark VII or cellphone), computer with digital imaging software, archival paper and inks.

She states:”I focus on things or scenes that others would normally ignore in their environment – often reinterpreting and placing them under different contexts. It is a form of escapism which goes back to childhood. Abstraction is a natural tendency due to a combination of a visual impairment and a love of graphic art. Though I occasionally work in color, black and white feels natural and allows me to focus on the elements that mean most.”

All artwork is available for purchase by contacting the artist.

The Gallery is located in the Kenilworth Library. The exhibit is free and open to the public during regular library hours.  For more information call 908-276-2451.
