This Weekend: Grammy-nominated Tim Eriksen and Artist Susan Brearey bring Pumpkintown to Nimbus!

Grammy-nominated singer and musician Tim Eriksen casts a spell – transporting audiences to another place and time: an Americana through the looking glass, where the village is imaginary but the music is real. With haunting images by Susan Brearey projected through a Magic Lantern, and the backing of percussionist Peter Irvine, be immersed in a world at once imagined and deeply true: shape-note harmony by the first published Native American composer, fiery Scottish fiddle tunes, apocalyptic Afro-Celtic gospel, traditional and original songs of war, the sea, traveling, tragedy and love, that tie it all together.

As a teacher, advocate, mentor, and unifier in the arts community, Meredith’s impact was widespread on local arts organizations and individual artists. She served as President of Pro Arts Jersey City, played a key role at the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs as Program Development Specialist, and was instrumental in finding Nimbus Dance Works’ first full-time home studio.

Nimbus Dance Works is developing a new arts center in Jersey City that will serve performing artists, visual artists and youth (more details to be released publicly soon). A long time supporter of Nimbus, Meredith Lippman’s estate is generously donating the proceeds of the sale of Ms. Lippman’s paintings to Nimbus in support of the new arts center.

In recognition of Meredith’s lifelong contributions to the arts in Jersey City, Nimbus
hopes to commemorate Meredith by permanently naming a gallery space for her at the new arts center. In order to make this possible, we must raise $30,000 in Meredith's name. Please consider purchasing one of the remaining paintings (currently on view in our gallery) or make a donation to honor and commemorate Meredith Lippman in the community she served so selflessly.

To view available paintings, please click HERE.

Ms. Lippman's work will be exhibited in the Nimbus Gallery from September 7- 28

Gallery Hours:
Monday-Thursday: 4-8pm
Friday: 4-7:30p

Join Nimbus Dance Works, Jersey City’s acclaimed professional dance company, for the 8th year of the company’s annual holiday tradition: Jersey City Nutcracker. Jersey City Nutcracker tells the story of two children’s urban holiday adventure leading them through fantasy, adversity and celebration and teaching them lessons about friendship and community along the way. Choreographed and directed by Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott, this adaption of Tchaikovsky’s holiday classic is performed by a stand-out cast of professional dancers from Nimbus Dance Works joined by youth and adults from the community as they portray familiar characters such as the Sugar Plum Fairy, the Rat King, the Arabian Princess and Drosselmeyer – all with a Jersey City twist! Amidst colorful sets, costumes, a brightly adorned tree, youth and adults alike are touched by this tale of holiday spirit.

Sponsored by Goldman Sachs, Jersey City Nutcracker is one of the largest annual performing arts events in the region. Performances involve Nimbus' professional company of dancers and youth performers drawn from the School of Nimbus Dance Works and the dance programs of the Jersey City Public Schools. Over 2,000 school children attend special school-time matinee performances.

Goldman Sachs is the Lead Sponsor of Jersey City Nutcracker 2017
