This Saturday, February 18 from 7-9 pm, is the opening for Enrique Zaldivar, the current exhibiting artist at Transformations Gallery (491 Middlesex Ave., Metuchen). The first time I saw his artwork, it grabbed me with its vibrant colors and energy. As he was hanging his show, I mentioned that at their openings, many artists will give a talk or slide show explaining the process they use to create their work. When he asked if we would allow him to do a painting demonstration, I was thrilled! While I love to hear about an artist's process, watching it live is even better. He explained that he likes to work fast and avoid much mixing of the paint to keep the colors bold and I think this will be fascinating to watch. He also arranged for some musician friends to come and play. The warmth of this show is exactly what a chilly February night needs- I hope you can make it!
