Curators share insights at Artsbridge’s next meeting


The mystery and magic of being a curator and mounting art exhibitions will be October’s topic for discussion at Artsbridge’s Distinguished Artists Series.

Three of Bucks County’s preeminent curators will share their experience and insight, and will tackle the tough questions artists and the community have about art shows and the art world:

What draws a curator to a particular artist’s work? What should I think about when entering an exhibition? What makes an artist’s statement powerful? How shall I frame or present my art?

Three curators, Carol Cruickshanks, Rhonda Garland and Henry Rowan, will come together for this special event – “Three Curators: A Panel Discussion,” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at Prallsville Mills, 33 Risler St., Stockton, N.J. Time will be given for audience questions during the free event.

As executive director of New Hope Arts, Cruickshanks presents the work of contemporary artists in a broad array of programming in the visual, performance and literary arts. She served as a faculty member of the Art History Department of The College of New Jersey, and was an art specialist with Rago Auctions.

Award-winning artist Rhonda Garland owns and operates the Silverman Gallery of Bucks County Impressionist Art. She serves on the board, and as exhibit chair, for the North Penn Arts Alliance, and has chaired Philadelphia Calligraphers’ Society exhibitions.

National award-winning photographer Henry Rowan is executive director of the Pennsylvania Center for Photography (PCP) in Doylestown. He frequently lectures and judges exhibitions throughout the region, and teaches a variety of workshops at the center.
