"Stay, This Moment" - Photos by Larry Kerner, Last Day!

Sussex County Sunflowers

On view: June 2-June 28, 2019
Hiking and camping while young introduced Larry Kerner to the grandeur of nature and gave him respect for the preservation of wilderness. The West Coast piqued his interest, and he began capturing images on film in color and in black and white. Since then, his camera has been his eyes. His interpretations range from cloud capped canyons to tumbling mountain streams and waterfalls. Mr. Kerner is a member of the Chatham Township Art League and the Vailsburg Camera Club of Springfield. The images in this show have been captured on film and digital media.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Adventures: Paintings by Renee Post

Mother Earth

On view: July 2-July 30, 2019
Renee Post, graphic designer and retired teacher, lives in Whitehouse Station. “To me, art is an adventure,” she says, “I experiment and explore with brushstrokes, color, texture and lighting. The exploration is always moving forward. Starting with a figure or perhaps a shape or lines, my approach to painting is expressive. Feelings, empathy, and humanity drive me to respond to the flow and viscosity of the paint. Looking at art is a dialogue between the painting and the viewer. For me, it is exciting and risk-taking, like an exploration of a different shore.” She has been painting for 43 years. Her passion for travelling has inspired her art work which has been shown at the 92nd St. Y,  and in various galleries and public spaces.

10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Landscapes of New Jersey: Photos by Dave Blinder

Day’s End at Great Bay

On view: August 3-August 29, 2019
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.
