Art at Straube Center

The Straube Center is Proud to Announce:

Color Collection

This two artist show features the beautiful works by: Jennifer Mele and Jamie Greenfield 

A artist show that use the imagination to create works of art.

Jennifer Mele, Jennifer Mele is an abstract painter and expressive artist based out of Ewing, NJ. She currently runs a small private practice as a licensed clinical therapist in Lawrenceville and leads, groups, workshops and retreats combining yoga, mindfulness and painting. Expressively and Intuitively Painting took all that Jen has learned over the past 3 decades through her own personal growth journey as well as being a healer and teacher. It also has taken a lot of unlearning of what she previously was taught in order to let go and be free in her movement, marks and all areas of life. As a recovering perfectionist, the freedom to break the rules as well as find balance has been liberating in her painting practice which she now chooses to share with others through her Instagram following, social media and selling her art online and in person. .If you’d like to stay in touch with Jen as well as find out more about her art, you can find her at You can also visit her on instagram @jennifermele and Pinterest/Facebook @ jennifermeleart

Straube Center features and supports local artists

For more  than 30 years, Straube Center exhibition rooms have displayed local and  international artists’ works in regularly rotating shows. Straube Center does not charge a commission, 100% of the sales goes to the individual artist.  As part of the office complex’s work environment, Straube’s art exhibits have proven extremely successful. Over the years, large numbers of celebrated artists have participated in Straube’s unique shows, and many more are ready to set up future shows.

Outdoor exhibit with local sculpture artists at Straube Center

In 2009,  the a sculpture  garden with “Art You Can Touch”, including large bronze, wood, metal, marble  and other stone carvings by a variety of locally as well as globally well-known  artists was added to the Straube Center Office Park.  Some of the three-dimensional art is on permanent display while some of it will be on exhibition temporarily. Most sculptures are for sale. The sculpture gardens is adding to the nurturing  environment and is giving more exposure not only to the seekers of enjoyment in art,  but to many visitors that may not normally visit a gallery. The high  number of sold art to date shows how much Straube Center tenants and visitors  enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience.
