Arcanifacts on TV.
Beginning Sunday, July 10th, and continuing until the end of the month, Cablevision’s Neighborhood Journal program will feature a segment on artist Scot D. Ryersson and his infamous Arcanifacts. The show will air in northern New Jersey on channel 78, at 6:30 pm and 10:30 pm on that Sunday. Check local listings for encore airings.
Neighborhood Journal ’s host and producer Joanna Tower and her crew were at the River Edge Public Library in mid-June to interview Ryersson and the library’s director, Daragh O’Connor. The library’s Arcanifacts exhibition of twenty-two pieces of the arcane and phantasmagorical, now on view there until the first week of August, was filmed in detail. Highlighted were Ryersson’s first of over one-hundred Arcanifacts, "Shards of the Mad Hatter’s Tea Cup", and his latest, "A Snippet of Peter Pan’s Shadow", thus taking the viewer from the depths of Wonderland to the heights of Neverland.
So, remember that date, time and channel!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program…
