SnapDragon Coffee & Social/ Art Gallery Photography Exhibition from January 29 to April 2, 2021

Curatorial promotional flyer

“Sense of Self” – A Photo/Art/Film Exhibit, curated by ArtbyBlouezz, is an independent curatorial arts platform and SYS Collective Photography Club with mentorship provided by others.

The theme is community, given that post-quarantine there has been a recognized unspoken need for spaces where people can be seen, heard and valued again. Although we are in a new digital reality, there is a need for people to join and connect face to face while respectfully respecting Covid-19 restrictions.

With the title “Sense of Self”, The Snapdragon Art Platform offers a space where communities intersect while being exposed to the arts. Snapdragon is a cafe, art house and gallery, in person and virtually.

“Sense of Self” will display for 10 weeks. This makes it possible to broaden the audience of the show in order to effectively support the artist and promote art sales. The list of participating photographers will be provided to the public at the opening night which will take place on Friday, January 29, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. at 190 Monticello Ave., Jersey City.

We can expect to see live performances from up-and-coming talents like Dancer Eskillz, Band MylesfromPopp, Young Poet Fajr Kegler, Content Creator Adam Setton and more. There will also be screenings of short films and documentaries from creators such as Charysse Harper from Xplore the World, Tanya Gupta from “here there and EVERYwhere”, and Tara Stafford Ocansey to name a few! This opening will be a memorable evening as it could set the tone for the rest of the exhibition until the closing date of April 2, 2021.

RSVP tickets can be purchased at the link provided for $14 or $16 at the door on opening night. For more news and updates, follow @snapdragonartjc on Instagram.
