“Visible Dreams” Exhibit at Guild of Creative Art

By Tony Senk

The unique paintings and photographs now on display at the Guild of Creative Art in Shrewsbury certainly can tell a story. Not all dreams fade at dawn, and often, they linger as they comfort us – or haunt us – throughout our lives. Three talented and prominent Jersey shore artists, working in pigments and pixels, have interpreted this concept in a month-long exhibition at the Guild of Creative Art. The exhibit will run from June 3 to June 28, with an opening reception set for June 4 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m.

Tera Yoshimura of Red Bank said she knew she would be an artist after being punished for drawing in the flyleaves of her mother’s book. After college, she worked as a photography touchup artist, layout and graphic designer, portrait painter, and naturalist. She enjoys the freedom of working in several media – acrylic, watercolor, and oil – and is also a printmaker. Also featured in the  “Visible Dreams” exhibit are the works of Hal Kahn from Long Branch, who has created a series called “Faces of the Elderly,” and the work of another member of the Guild of Creative Art, Miguel Figueras from Atlantic Highlands.

The Guild is located at 620 Broad Street in Shrewsbury. Call (732) 741-1441, email is Guildofcreativeart@verizon.net, or visit www.guildofcreativeart.org. Guild hours are Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m..; and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Admission and on-site parking is free.
