This exhibition of photographs by Dave Blinder showcases open spaces throughout all 21 counties of the Garden State.
Despite being the most populous state in the USA, New Jersey contains a great deal of ecological diversity. We have beautiful natural ocean beaches, mountainous rocky outcrops, wildlife-laden marshes, and the Pinelands National Reserve. Natural areas are important to maintain drinking water quality, house our native wildlife, and for our own much needed outdoors recreation. The goal of this exhibit is to capture the diversity and beauty in New Jersey’s open spaces. Dave Blinder is a Morris County native and professional photographer. He is a board member of the Protect Our Wetlands Water and Woods non-profit open space organization in Denville as well as Land Steward to the Troy Meadows nature preserve in Parsippany.

The NJ Art Association (originally the Millburn-Short Hills Art Center) is one of the oldest art associations in New Jersey. The group encourages art education and appreciation; commends the work of its members and other individuals and arts groups; offers opportunities for growth in the arts and the development of local talent; and sponsors programs by highly qualified presenters for its members and the community. Most NJ Art Association members are visual artists — amateurs and professionals and whatever is in between — who share those goals and a love of art. In addition to mounting their own exhibitions and demonstrations, the members join together several times a year to show their work. [Pictured: acrylic by Mike Dziomba]
