"A Painter, A Sculptor and A Cabinetmaker Walk Into a Bar" - Dan Gordon

April 3 - 30

Opening Reception March 8, 1-4 PM

Dan Gordon

The title of artist Dan Gordonís latest show, ďA Painter, A Sculptor and a Cabinetmaker Walk into a BarÖ.Ē, although it is in the form of an old joke, speaks to the various hats the artist wears to create a piece of art.

This Watchung Arts Center show is timely and exciting because it features a group of pieces that succeed in balancing the mediums of wood and paint through which Dan Gordon achieves his ideas. The wood often provides the bones and warmth, the paint is the muscle and motion, and the overall sculptural quality feeds the brainís need to pull all the elements together, forming a cohesive thought. The work is infused with Gordonís day to day experience as an artist, woodworking teacher and cabinetmaker.

A graduate of Drew University, Mr. Gordon is essentially self-taught in the mediums of inlay/marquetry, paint and carving, but gained valuable experience working alongside some of the worldís finest artisans, including New Jersey furniture makers Glen Guarino and Frank Pollaro.

While working with Pollaro, among a wide variety of furniture building and creative activities, he had the opportunity to help develop and execute designs for a Steinway grand piano honoring master pianist Roger Williams. On another project, Gordon worked closely with Jim Hensonís original creative director to build marquetry panels that honored Jimís earliest creations.
