The New Art Group, in conjunction with Claudia Fuess and the Watchung Arts Center, will be hosting a memorial service on March 10th from 1-3pm at the Watchung Arts Center, 18 Stirling Road in Watchung, NJ in memory of Jim Fuess, who passed away in July of 2012. All members of the public who knew Jim and his work are invited to attend. Refreshments will be served.
Virginia Fabbri Butera, Ph.D., Director, Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery, College of Saint Elizabeth will speak about Jim's life, artwork and contribution to the art community. Members of the New Art Group and a few close personal friends will also offer some thoughts about Jim and his work.
Jim's work will be on exhibit and for sale in the lower gallery for the month of March. Also, works from various time periods not recently seen will be made available to the public for sale on his website. Further information will be available at the memorial service.
One of Jim's greatest delights was being able to share his exhuberant vision with other people. This will be an opportunity to celebrate that vision and revisit how he communicated it through the light and colors in his works.
We hope you will all join us in remembering his wonderful accomplishments.
