The work of Berkeley College Instructor Catherine St. John is on display through July 23 at Imlay Fine Art in Montclair, NJ. Her exhibit, entitled Still Poems, infuses new life into the traditional still life genre.
Dr. St. John teaches in the Liberal Arts and Sciences Department, School of Arts and Sciences, at Berkeley College, Woodland Park (formerly West Paterson), NJ. She received her Master of Fine Arts from William Paterson University and her Doctor of Arts from New York University. She has exhibited throughout the US and internationally.
Her numerous grants and awards include a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship at Robeson Institute, Rutgers University, NJ. She has also received the Distinguished Alumni Award at William Paterson University in 2000, and was selected to participate in the Vermont Studio School Residency Program. She also has received the Bergen Museum Judges’ Award, the Hecksher Museum Award, the Gladys B. Blum Memorial Award given by the National Association of Women Artists, and the Emily Lowe Prize for Contemporary Painting at the National Academy of Design.
Dr. St. John sees her paintings as a world unto themselves. She says, “By scrambling things in unexpected ways, I seek a new language for the world of the senses. My paintings decidedly hinge on an aesthetic reality enhanced by an awareness of the emotional potential of experiences which can be translated visually.”
