Our Best Stuff, a new exhibit from the Highland Park Artists Collective, will be on display at the Highland Park Public Library from October 1 through October 31, 2017. The group art show features paintings, drawings, prints, hanging sculpture, found art, and photography. An art reception will be held on Sunday, October 15 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
The following artists have contributed work to this exhibit: Bill Bonner, Lisa Cameron, Fred Cole, Lauren Curtis, Natalia Denissova, Mort Farrah, Phil George, Bill Giacalone, Ruth Jansyn, Susan Lichtig, John Marron, Tom Maugham, Ann Parelius, Bob Parelius, E. Carol O’Neill, Ellen Rebarber, and Joanne Telemdschinow. All of the artists belong to the Highland Park Artist Cooperative. The group formed in 2008 so that local artists could work together to obtain display spaces and host exhibits throughout the borough as well as to help each other.
“We are an informal group of artists who still meet Sundays at 12:30 PM at Ruthie’s at 70 Raritan Avenue,” Mort Farrah said. “All ages are welcome and you don’t have to live in Highland Park. Some people bring pieces they are working on to get feedback from the Collective.”
