Walker, a Carlstadt resident, experiments with digital media and photography. She describes her photographs as the foundation of her art, which she infuses with the emotional intensity, spontaneity and anti-figurative aesthetic of abstract expressionism.
Walker says she considers art to be an act of rebellion, and she believes that digital media expands and redefines an artist’s creative possibilities.
The NJMC created the Flyway Gallery to help foster the cultural identity of the Meadowlands District by providing a space to showcase the talent of local artists.
Recent exhibits have featured nature paintings by Fair Lawn resident David Buckbinder and North Bergen resident Lissanne Lake, photographs by Melissa Buesing and Jonathan Glick of Rutherford, and drawings of the Meadowlands by students in Hudson County’s Gifted and Talented Consortium.
The gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. (Note: Gallery will be closed July 3 and 4 for Fourth of July holidays.)
Admission is free. The gallery is located in the Meadowlands Environment Center, 2 DeKorte Park Plaza, Lyndhurst. For information, please call (201) 460-8300 or visit www.njmeadowlands.gov/ec
