Martin Mayo’s Creations Featured at Barnegat Library in August

Jul 25, 2018

The Barnegat branch of the Ocean County Library will feature the creations of local artist Martin Mayo during the month of August. A graduate of Parsons School of Design, Mayo said he will be displaying between 15 and 20 works featuring acrylics and house paint. His work has been published in many magazines as well as The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe. He taught art in Jersey City High School from 2005 to 2009.

Mayo is also a caricature artist, and sets up shop on Friday nights during the summer at Candiqueen’s in Barnegat.

“Caricatures are not going to be part of this show,” he said. “These are not magazine illustrations, either. They’re works that I have done on my own time.

“I learned a lot from my father, who was a graphic artist,” said Mayo, who is a member of the Pine Shores Art Association in Manahawkin.
