Journey to Healing exhibit

by Press Release | Feb 6, 2006
Journey to Healing exhibit The exhibition Journey to Healing: Surviving Domestic Violence and/or Sexual Assault opened at The Noyes Museum of Art on February 4 and continues through May 7, 2006. The exhibition represents a partnership between The Noyes Museum of Art, the Atlantic County Women’s Center and nationally-recognized artist, Rosemarie Chiarlone.

A native of Philadelphia, award-winning artist, Rosemarie Chiarlone has spent much of her twenty-seven year career exploring the experiences of women in contemporary society. Chiarlone states, “Through my work, I explore the passage of time and layers of meaning. I am drawn to the use of unconventional materials and methods and continue to expand and experiment with the form and function of my art. My work is stimulated by the intrigue of juxtaposition of image and text as a vehicle for artistic creation and social expression.” Chiarlone’s solo and group art installations have been displayed nationwide, and in 2002 she created “Storm,” an interactive installation exploring HIV and AIDS for The Noyes Museum of Art.

Journey to Healing is a themed art exhibition whose goal is to create awareness of women’s experiences and society’s response to domestic violence. The installation will tempt viewers to enter the private world of a domestic abuse survivor, allowing the observer to gain insight into the survivors’ experiences, knowledge and emotions, making the art a conduit for social activism. Most importantly, the exhibition serves as a healing experience for the women telling the stories.

The exhibition includes two additional programs that will help raise the level of awareness and understanding of domestic violence and sexual assault. The events include a Meet-the-Artist Program on Monday, March 20 from 1pm to 3:30pm and a “Take Back the Night” evening candlelight vigil on Thursday, April 27 from 6pm to 9pm, modeled after the international rally, featuring personal testimonies from domestic violence survivors.

The Noyes Museum of Art is located one and a half miles south of Historic Smithville Village, off Route 9, on Lily Lake Road in Oceanville, New Jersey. Hours of operation are Tuesday to Saturday, 10am to 4:30pm and Sunday, noon to 5pm. Admission fees are $4 for adults and $3 for seniors and students.
