May is a perfect time to exhibit The Art of Mort Farrah at the Highland Park Public Library, 31 North Fifth Avenue. The retired city planner paints from memories of the Jersey shore. His work in several mediums – acrylic, oil, pen and ink, water color, and graphite pencil call to mind the bright lights and vivid colors that are so prevalent at ocean resort towns.
