Taking Place on Friday, September 8, 2017
A City-Wide, All-Day Celebration of Art and Culture in Jersey City

(Jersey City, NJ; Aug 8, 2017)—  Fall is on its way, and Art House’s JC Fridays will kick off the season with 32 exciting visual and performing arts events! Come out and celebrate with this city-wide festival on Friday, September 8, 2017. Restaurants, galleries, stores, and event spaces throughout Jersey City will showcase a variety of art-related happenings including visual exhibitions, live music, performance acts, educational demonstrations, and more. All events are free and open to the public. As one of the preeminent art scenes in the tri-state area, Jersey City is abound with artists of all types, musicians, and individuals with unique talent; JC Fridays is one of the best times for them to share their newest projects and works. Held quarterly, thousands of residents pour out to experience these artists’ latest works and to revel in the joy art brings to the community.

Some highlights include (a complete list of events follows):

• ART— “Heidi Curko, Recent Works.” Pared down in palette Curko's artwork consists at times of energetic, layered line-work, or is calm and meditative. This premier JC Fridays lobby exhibition at The Park Hamilton is curated by Anne Novado of Novado Gallery at THE PARK HAMILTON.

• EDUCATIONAL— “Tiny Artists.” Hazel Baby & Kids invites accompanied children between the ages of 3 and 5 to create their own collages in another edition of our “Tiny Artists” workshop. The pieces will be displayed in our window for evening viewing. Drop in any time during the event hours at HAZEL BABY & KIDS.

• FILM/VIDEO— “The Base 12 Project.” PRIME Gallery is excited to present The Base 12 Project by Apostrophe NYC, a group exhibition featuring works from their pop-up collection with PRIME GALLERY X APROSTROPHE NYC.

• MUSIC— “Music at Whealth.” Drop into Whealth for an evening of live musical performances! Take a step into the new Whealth Cafe and enjoy a nice meal while you're there! Seating begins at 7:00PM and 8:30PM at Whealth’s Journal Squared Café.

• PERFORMANCE— “New Waves.” Fiber optic light-embedded forms respond to music in hypnotic, undulating light displays (featuring some original electronic music by husband Robert Gourley). Videos are projection-mapped onto three-dimensional surfaces, which the audience is invited to interact with in surprising ways with JANET JEUN-GOURLEY (SPANGLE POP).
