fiddleheads3This Sunday, September 13th, 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., New Jersey artists Jean Lanza Clarke, Selena Palmer, P.D. Swelt, and members of the Suburban Artists Guild will host a free opening reception for the Fall 2009 gallery show at Fiddleheads Restaurant in downtown Jamesburg, New Jersey.


The show will feature original works in watercolor, pastels, acrylic, pen and ink, and charcoal, all tastefully framed and ready for sale. Also featured will be the famed work of outdoor-nature photographer Jennifer Wiessner of North Yarmouth, Maine, a native of East Brunswick, NJ.


Fiddleheads invites the public to a reception to view the show and visit with the artists and restaurant staff. Complimentary light refreshments, courtesy of the artists and Fiddleheads, will be served during the reception time. The restaurant will not be open for seating during the reception, but will open for dinner at 4:00 p.m. at the conclusion of the event. Also during the reception, Fiddleheads will award a $10.00 restaurant gift certificate with any art purchase. Reservations are not required for the reception.


Artist Jean Lanza Clarke, a resident of East Brunswick, works in watercolors, acrylics, and pastels. She is currently an in-house architect for Rutgers University, designing offices, laboratories, and a pharmacy.


Artist Selena Palmer, a resident of East Brunswick, uses a variety of media to create her art, including pen and ink, graphite, and color pencil. Her focuses are the enjoyment of creating and the integration of different techniques, concepts, and art media in new ways.


Artist P.D. Swelt, also a resident of East Brunswick, works primarily in watercolor, but enjoys working in pen and ink, colored pencil and, more recently, mixed media and pastels.


Photographer Jennifer Wiessner, is the house artist at Fiddleheads, having displayed and sold her work at the restaurant continuously since 2004.


The exhibit will be on display through November 2009.
