The Highland Park Artist Collective meets every Sunday at Pino’s at 12:30 PM, and everyone is welcome. The artists have been meeting since 2008, and you can say that they support each other, lend each other tools and advice and they also hang together. From February 1 through March 31, 2020 they will be hanging together in an exhibit at the Highland Park Public Library. An Artist Reception for the exhibit will be held on Sunday, February 23 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
Artists Bill Bonner, Tom Maughan, Mort Farrah, Ellen Rebarber, John Marron, Irene Rieger, Larry McCandlish, and Fred Cole have contributed paintings, photos, and three dimensional objects.
From Mort Farrah’s whimsical paintings of the Jersey Shore to Tom Maughan’s spotlight on little known places as Belmar’s pier, to John Marron’s look to the East and their philosophies, to the three dimensional collages that Ellen Rebarber creates, to the digitalized photos of Larry McCandlish, and Irene Reiger to Bill Bonners crystals and bubbles, the work hangs very well together.
