Lewis Carroll wrote the enchanting story of Alice and her friends in Wonderland 150 years ago. Dallas Piotrowski, known throughout the region primarily as a realistic painter of the natural world,  has been creating an ongoing series of Alice in Wonderland paintings for a number of years. Her series provided the inspiration for the Trenton Museum Society’s exhibit, Alice Revisited, a celebration of Carroll’s fanciful story.

 

Alice has inspired many other artists as well, including those selected for this exhibition. Csilla Sadloch was inspired by watching a child with long hair on a swing, imagining that she was falling down the rabbit hole. Artist Rhoda Kassof-Isaac collaborated with Poet Joseph Longino to produce a series of digital collages and companion poems retelling the Alice in Wonderland story.

 

Anyone who knows the creative work of Eric Schultz will be delighted by his take on Alice in Wonderland, as they will by the works of Valerie Young.

 

The Mad Hatter’s Tea, offers fun for the family during the Thanksgiving weekend. Enjoy tea, sandwiches and cookies while children create crafts and adults relax on Sunday, November 29, 2-4 pm. Children 10 and under $5, accompanying adults $10.
