This month, local female artists and their work were celebrated at Common Threads 4: The Power of Women. Held at the Hopewell Valley Vineyard, the event featured the creations of 13 talented female artists, many of whom live and work in, or are inspired by, the Trenton art scene (their “common thread”). Each artist brought her own unusual eye and a powerful creative vision to their art and the event itself.
The artists included:
- Jenny Cameron
- Victoria Crystal
- Burgess Ekman
- Aylin Green
- Mairead Healy
- Jessica Klein
- Kathleen Liao
- Antoinette Marchfelder
- Elizabeth Melas
- Erika Rachel
- Kat Reischl
- Tamara Torres
- Jesse Vincent
Trenton Councilwoman Marge Caldwell-Wilson attended the event, offering rave praise for Common Threads organizer and local artist, C.a. Shofed, and presented him with an award from the Trenton City Council.

Attendees were able to patronize women artists, have a gourmet brick oven pizza (a vineyard specialty) with a glass of award winning wine produced locally by Violetta Neri of the Hopewell Valley Vineyards, and top it all off with treats available from Tan’s Tasty Cakes.
