Paintings by Arts Access Artists on Exhibition at Bernardsville Library in July

Bernardsville Public Library is pleased to present an exhibition during the month of July of paintings by fifteen artists of the Matheny Medical and Educational Center’s Arts Access Program. There will be an artists’ reception, open to the public, on Monday, July 9 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm.

 Matheny is a special hospital and educational facility in Peapack for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities. Arts Access enables people with these disabilities to create fine art, assisted by professional artist-facilitators.

 Paintings featured in the exhibition will be small and medium-sized abstract works on canvas. This display will provide Arts Access artists the opportunity to share their works with the community. All proceeds from artwork sales are split 50/50, with half the funds going directly to the artist and the other half going to Matheny to cover the cost of art materials, stretching and framing of the work.

 The show will be on view in the library’s Community Room from July 2 to July 30 during regular library hours unless a meeting is in progress. For further information, please call the library at 908-766-0118.
