Artist Claudia Waters to Show Her Paintings at Edward Williams Gallery

TEANECK, N.J. (February 3, 2010)— Paintings of Claudia Waters will be on display at the Edward Williams Gallery, on Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Metropolitan Campus Teaneck, N.J. from Monday, March 1, 2010, to Friday, March 26, 2010. There will be an opening reception on Sunday, March 7, 2010 from 2-4:30 p.m.

Waters’ exhibit, “Persistence of Vision” studies the human figure in motion. The term “persistence of vision” is a reference to the illusion of motion created when still pictures are viewed via an instrument known as the zoetrope. In a zoetrope, a series of individual images is viewed through a revolving cylinder, appearing to the eye as a single animated figure. The zoetrope was invented in the mid-nineteenth century and was a forerunner to modern motion pictures.

After graduating with a B.A. from Adelphi University, Waters continued her education, earning a B.F.A. from the Parsons School of Design in New York City. She also studied at The Yard School of Art at the Montclair Art Museum in Montclair, N.J. and The Art Students League of New York.

In 2008, Waters was an awards finalist in The Artist’s Magazine and received the Allied Artists of America Award from the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, O.H. in 2007. This exhibit of her work will be her second solo exhibit. She has had her art featured in over 25 group exhibits.  

The Edwards Williams Gallery, located at 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack, is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
