‘Master of Utilizing Shapes’

James Lane has been an Arts Access artist since the program’s inception in 1993. He is, says Haeree Park, Arts Access project and event coordinator, “a master of utilizing shapes in a mature manner. This defines his unique style. I always find myself drawn to his work.”

Lane will have three pieces on display as part of the visual arts exhibit curated by Park for Full Circle 2015 Perspectives, the annual celebration of Arts Access to be held from 3-6 p.m. in the Robert Schonhorn Arts Center in Peapack, NJ,  on Saturday, November 7. There is an untitled acrylic on canvas and another entitled “Roller”. The third piece is a metal print called “Abstract”.

There is “only one word to describe James,” adds Arts Access director Eileen Murray. “That’s ‘deep’. He’s got these layers, and James is the only one who knows how deep they go. He knows exactly what he’s going for. To say he is a talented artist is an understatement.”

The visual arts exhibit at Full Circle will begin at 3 p.m. A stage presentation at 4 p.m., produced by Arts Access dance facilitator Heather Williams, will include 12 segments encompassing creative writing, dance, and drama created by Arts Access artists.
