JRAL Collective, The Pocket Gallery’s inaugural show, features the collections of Raleigh Ceasar and Joshua Knoblick with Julia Thomson’s curatorial vision, including three works of her own. The pieces from Raleigh Ceasar were acquired from the collection of Jane Hart and display a wide array of artists, from local to international. New Jersey artists from this collection include Willie Cole, Nell Painter, and Mel Leipzig. Joshua Knoblick has a long standing relationship with the Newark art scene. His collection is primarily inspired by Newark artists with whom he is familiar. Artists from his collection include Gianluca Bianchino and Lizzy Storm. The three black-and-white drawings by Julia Thomson reflect her dramatic, surreal vision and come from her series of floating scapes.
