Florence Moonan

Stockton, NJ 08559-0166

Florence Moonan grew up in Lambertville, New Jersey involved in the visual and performing arts at home, school, and local summer theater. Her heart was set on becoming a performer, but a gift set of acrylics from her father, a self-taught artist, redirected her focus. She returned to her early roots and began painting at home while she raised a family.

In 1977, she accepted a full-time administrative position at Trenton State College (now, The College of New Jersey) where she soon registered for a studio class in the evening each semester. In 1980, she enrolled as a student in the Department of Art. An unconventional painting class with Professor Chrisa Craig in 1988 changed her approach to making art. This change was further sealed when distinguished artist, Joan Snyder visited the campus. Prior to her lecture, Snyder saw Moonan’s work from Dr. Craig’s class in the student exhibition and asked for an introduction. The painter talked to her about her future as an artist. Her recommendations and words of encouragement provided the incentive to continue working in this new direction. Craig’s teachings, and Snyder’s works inspired her to express her internal emotions through color and texture. This was a pivotal time in the process of her artistic development.

She continued to work and study at The College, while building a professional portfolio. In December 2002, she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The College of New Jersey.

Moonan’s paintings have been selected for numerous juried shows, solo, invited, and group exhibitions in galleries and museums throughout the United States. New and recent paintings will be exhibited in a solo show at The Gallery at Hillside Square in Montclair, NJ in late February through May 22, 2014. Her work has been selected to be included in the 2014 Solo Exhibition Series at The Abington Art Center. A recent honor includes an invitational show representing nine New Jersey artists presented by the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission. Her artwork was selected for Philadelphia’s Art in City Hall 2013 exhibition: Library of Life, in collaboration with the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University. In 2013, she was selected for a solo exhibition in the Main Gallery at Trenton City Museum. She was invited to participate in a two-person show with renowned stone carver, Ayami Aoyama, at The Gallery at Mercer County Community College in 2012.

Her work is held in the permanent collection of The College of New Jersey, the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission, BARC Developmental Services, and the Family Service Association of Bucks County. It has been recognized with awards from the Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission, Phillips Mill, Ellarslie Open IX, Golden Key Art International, and others. The late Doris Brandes included Moonan’s work in her book, Artists of the River Towns.

Since retiring from The College in 2007, she is occupied full-time with painting and exhibiting. She and her husband live on a hillside in Stockton, NJ overlooking the hills of Pennsylvania. They have three sons, a daughter, and six grandchildren. Music remains a powerful influence on her work.
