Artist declares April ‘Stripes Awareness Month’

MAP-florence Weisz stripes-WSOUTH ORANGE / MAPLEWOOD, NJ — Gallery 103, located at Geralyn’s Art Studio, 103 Baker St. in Maplewood, will be exhibiting South Orange resident Florence Weisz’s artworks in a solo show, “Sensuous Stripes,” from April 3 through May 5. On view will be art that is all about stripes: 2D and 3D collages, a site specific wall installation and an interactive collage that encourages viewer participation.

A reception for the artist, free and open to the public, will be Thursday, April 7, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Everyone is invited to wear their own favorite striped clothing and an informal striped fashion show is planned. Though inspired by Girls Night Out, the event includes everyone — men, women and children wearing stripes.
