Flyway Gallery: Young Artist’s Show Extended


“Starbreaker,” by Gabriel Diaz.

This month, eight-year-old Lyndhurst resident Gabriel Diaz  became the first elementary-school-aged student to have his very own exhibit at the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission’s Flyway Gallery.

The show was originally scheduled to run through last Friday but has now been extended through February.

Diaz is introducing area residents to his artistic talents during the multi-media, wildlife-themed show, “The Wonders of the Universe.”

Some of Gabriel’s work measures as large as 5 feet high by 4½ feet wide.
