City Without Walls (cWOW), Newark’s oldest alternative art space, recently launched the gallery’s 25th Annual ArtReach + Newark New Media exhibition. It will be on view through August 26th.
The goal of Lincoln Park-based cWOW’s ArtReach program is to expose local high school art students to the real lives of working artists. To achieve this, the ArtReach program offers practical advice and guidance to its students, and includes a high-profile cWOW exhibition featuring collaborative work by the mentors and their students.
The semester-long program also entails art talks and visits to local art spaces. Its guiding philosophy: that the creation of a personal bond between novice and experienced artists can facilitate the education and professional prospects of promising art students.
In addition to the ArtReach, cWOW’s Newark New Media (NNM) program is also celebrating its 10th season this year. As in years past, NNM will see a program alum mentor Newark elementary school students, who themselves will produce work in a variety of media including film, animation, video game design and printed 3D works.
The ArtReach group exhibition features painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, installations and video by more than a dozen student-mentor pairs, and will also screen works by East Side High School’s New Media Studies Magnet Program Students and Alumni Mentors.
Additionally, this year Newark Print Shop, located in Express Newark at the Hahne’s building, hosted three artist mentorships providing access for students to learn more about printmaking in a communal space.
