The Barron Arts Center Presents:  “The Earth Speaks” – A Juried Art Exhibit

The Barron Arts Center presents:  “The Earth Speaks” – A Juried Art Exhibition.  What does the earth say to you? This exhibit focuses on the personal dialogue between the artist and our home.  This self-reflective theme begs the question: “What kind of relationship do you have with our home planet?  What is your role in the protection of our environment? If the Earth speaks, what would it say to you?  This exhibit strives to re-examine our responsibilities by taking an honest look at environmentalism in the 21st century.  “The Earth Speaks” features works in all mediums from renowned area artists.  A portion of the proceeds from “The Earth Speaks” will be donated to the Woodbridge River Watch 501 (c) (3). For more information please call (732)634-0413. “The Earth Speaks” Juried Art Exhibition is on view through August 26, 2018. Gallery Hours: Mon.-Fri.: 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM.  Sat. & Sun. 2:00 – 4:00 PM.
