Jacob Landau and His Circle 

October 12th through December 7th, 2014

 

The Jewish Museum of New Jersey presents "Jacob Landau and His Circle," an exhibition of paintings by the late Jacob Landau and works by members of the artist's circle who were strongly influenced by his vision.  In addition to Landau's paintings, the exhibition will feature works by Eleta Caldwell, Gladys Grauer, Joanne Leone, Jack McGovern, and Myron Wasserman - artists who studied under Jacob Landau.

Landau, a native of Philadelphia, lived and worked for most of his life in Roosevelt, New Jersey - a utopian agrarian and industrial cooperative established during the Great Depression by garment workers from New York City.  There he worked closely with noted social realist painters such as Ben Shahn, and Gregorio Prestopino.

The work of his protégés who are featured in this exhibition, displays the full range of Landau's influence, from Eleta Caldwell's wreaths, Glady's Grauer's tapestries, Joanne Leone's collages, Jack McGovern's paintings, and Myron Wasserman's mobiles.

The exhibit will open on Sunday, October 12th with a reception from 1-4pm, and will continue on Sundays from 1-5pm and by appointment through December 7th.
