Jersey City Artist Tyler Ballon, Folk Music Duo Jackson Pines, and Camden Photographer Erik James Montgomery

Jersey City Artist Tyler Ballon, Folk Music Duo Jackson Pines, and Camden Photographer Erik James Montgomery Jersey City native and recent art school grad Tyler Ballon is now back home and already making a name for himself. A residency at Mana Contemporary gave Tyler space to create his large realistic paintings focused on interpreting Biblical themes with images grounded in African American life in Jersey City today. The folk music duo Jackson Pines plays songs that tell stories about life on the road, as well as at home in the Jersey Pine Barrens. State of the Arts catches them in performance at the Wonder Bar in Asbury Park. And, photographer Erik James Montgomery. In addition to his own art practice, he instructs at-risk youth in Camden in the craft of professional photography. Plus a visit to the studio of trompe l'oiel painter Gary Erbe.
