SOAMarts would like to invite you to attend the Artist’s Opening reception of the 2013 SOAMarts Pop-Up Gallery on Saturday evening, September 21, from 6 - 8pm. This year’s Gallery takes place at 101 South Broadway in South Amboy, New Jersey.

The SOAMarts Pop-Up gallery is a one day exhibit held during the annual South Amboy Arts Fest in South Amboy, New Jersey. Our goal is to provide a venue for local artists in a non-traditional gallery space, with an emphasis on diversity of mediums and styles. This years Arts Fest takes place on Sunday, September 22, from 11am - 5pm.

The 2013 Pop-Up Gallery space is through the generosity of Meir Cohen, co-owner of Tel Tech, Inc.

As a special addition, many vibrant works by young artists in local area schools will be on display. The art experience begins when we are formative, and made stronger by having great art teachers as our guides, as shown by this years outstanding student art exhibition. SOAMarts encourages the support of arts education both at home, and in the schools.

We hope you can join us for this reception to preview the artwork, meet the artists, and support local arts in New Jersey. Refreshments and light snacks will be served.

I've been shooting both analogue and digital formats for the better part of a decade. My focus is to shoot subjects that require a second look; subjects that we pass by never having (or taking) the chance to really admire their beauty.

Just recently, I've taken a more professional approach to my work. I've launched my website, began to sell at local markets and started to build a following. Along with my recent acceptance to Gallery 13 in Asbury Park, I've taken up shooting races (Mud Runs, ColorMeRads and of the like) to hone in on my skill set. I've also began to to study print making and painting in hopes to combine all mediums together.

Alfonso Constante is a young artist based out of New Jersey. He received his Associate’s degree in Fine Arts from Raritan Valley Community College. He originally lived in Ecuador for 10 years but migrated to Plainfield, New Jersey in the early 2000s. His life as a migrant child greatly influences his work, as well as renowned artists Jackson Po***ck, Pablo Picasso, and Gerhard Richter. Believing that art is “simply a lifestyle,” he uses anything to create art from acrylic to found objects. Through his art, Alfonso hopes to make the viewer feel what he feels. He has been featured in many art shows at Raritan Valley Community College as well as being selected for the college’s 2013 Nota Bene event. He is currently doing art exhibits and hopes to return to school to obtain his Masters Degree in Fine arts/Education.

The photographs in the series “Pictures of Junk” portray metal debris on the floor of Vik Muniz’s workspace in Rio de Janeiro. Muniz perched with his view camera in a cherry picker high above the floor and used a laser pointer to direct a studio staff of local teenagers. As you might discern here, the pictures share a lineage with old master narrative paintings of the pagan pantheon, here Caravaggio’s “Narcissus” (1597). All picture-making – he seems to be telling us – is a process of reflecting and recycling.
