An awards reception is scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It is free, and open to the public.
The exhibit features three-dozen pieces that fall into five categories: Oil/Acrylic, Watercolor, Photography, Computer Manipulated Art and Other Media. Works range from photographs and paintings of nature scenes and wildlife to pastel portraits.
The artists include folks from the Meadowlands as well as other southern Bergen County communities and some Essex County residents. The watercolor above is “Edge of the Woods,” by John Hardin of Rutherford.
The Art Association of Rutherford was chartered in 1947 to develop and encourage an interest in the arts. While members of the association live throughout Northern New Jersey, more than 75 percent are from the Meadowlands area and consider the region a source of inspiration.
(The pastel on left is “Musician,” by Julia Martone of Rutherford.)
