The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s 2010 Employee Art Exhibit will be on display at the Meadowlands Environment Center’s Flyway Gallery during November. The show runs from Wednesday, Nov. 3 through Thursday, Dec. 2. The Meadowlands Environment Center is located in DeKorte Park, the home of the NJMC.
The environmentally themed show includes nature and landscape photography by Commission staffers Lou Coviello (above) and Jim Wright , as well as digital inkjet prints by Lisa Cameron.
More info and two other images follow.
Coviello’s images capture exotic butterflies and landscapes.
Wright photos have been featured on this blog, which documents the amazing natural resources of the Meadowlands District. Wright’s works in the employee exhibit include photos of dragonflies, tree swallows, a male Ruddy Duck (right) and District parks.
Cameron, who has worked as an artist and designer for more than 30 years, uses digital photography and Adobe Photoshop to push colors to the brink of reality and shapes to the edge of abstraction.
Her work has been shown in galleries in New Jersey, Philadelphia and New York, and she is a member of the Highland Park Artists’ Collective. An example of her work is on the right. Her images can be viewed on her website, http://cameronartportraits.com.
The Flyway Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. DeKorte Park encompasses one square mile of wetlands, nature trails and water views – framed by the New York City skyline – and is a great place for bird watching and enjoying nature in general.
Directions to DeKorte Park are available in the “About Us” section of the NJMC’s website, at www.njmeadowlands.gov, or by calling (201) 460-8300.
