To Market (detail) by Phyllis Halsted Freedman
The exhibit, The Beauty of Work, was inspired by the beautiful interplay of people doing their daily work in natural environments. The source material was taken from National Geographic Magazine from 1987 to 2000.
Freedman, who has studied and painted for more than 40 years, has had four major solo shows and has exhibited in private and corporate collections as well as in galleries and juried shows.
The artist, who has been an adjunct professor at the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers University, is also a long time resident of Highland Park and a member of its artistic community.
