Coffee With … Peter Jacobs

BY  |  Monday, Apr 11, 2011 11:00am

Hundreds of stories have been written about the New York Times’s decision to build a paywall to limit access to its website. But one person who doesn’t care a whit is Montclair artist Peter Jacobs. Jacobs has a strong attachment to the Times, but as a collage artist, it’s only the paper version that interests him.

For six years, every day, Jacobs has woken up, taken an Exacto blade to the newspaper and created something he calls his Collage Journal, which he then scans and posts online. I sat down with him last week to talk about the project.

Jacobs currently has work on view at the Montclair Art Museum’s exhibit “What is Portraiture?” and at the SMI Gallery at Academy Square. He is also the artist in resident for April at 365 Days of Print.

Stopped by on opening day to take out a dozen empanadas. Very welcoming space, especially with the storefront glass open on a warm spring day and sidewalk tables available; and, the staff were warm and engaged. The empanadas are soft and pastry-like, rather than the harder crisper type. They got a thumbs up from the Morales family, who loves them a good empanada!
