Tony Seker: Lights, Splatter, Action!
Open during Box Office Hours (Mon-Fri 11am-4pm) and by appointment from Sept. - Dec. 2021
Tony Seker is a local artist with a global perspective. His “action” painting style, ironically inspired by the likes of Peter Sellers and Victor Borge, fuses together elements of playfulness and optimism. However, his artistic expression stems from the uncertainty of his nomadic refugee childhood when he consciously shifted to using bright and colorful “protest” paint on his model warplanes as an antiwar statement. Tony shines a light on life’s randomness to inspire greater understanding and compassion. His exhibitions have spanned the U.S, Europe and the Middle East.
His ”Lights, Splatter, Action!” collection is on display through the Fall and Holiday season in the Members Lounge on the theater’s lobby level. The paintings are available for sale.
The Performing Arts School provides arts education to students age 3 months to 21 years throughout Northern New Jersey. With classes in all types of performing arts, outreach programs throughout the state, and programming for children with special needs, every donation helps create more opportunities for new artists.
