“Coastal Impressions: Painters of the Jersey Shore, 1880-1940” brought together a group of rarely seen artists in an exhibition at Morven Museum & Garden. State of the Arts visits iconic spots along the state’s coastline for a look at what has changed and what hasn’t . Plus, David Billig, 23, of Seaville, shows “great promise” as a traditional duck decoy carver, says his mentor Jamie Hand. State of the Arts visits the carvers in Cape May County to get a firsthand look at a traditional art form that is truly native to South Jersey. And, the renowned Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company, based in New Jersey for over 30 years. State of the Arts marks the occasion with a behind-the-scenes look at the company in rehearsals, a conversation with artistic director and choreographer Carolyn Dorfman, and excerpts from recent works.
