The Mikhail Zakin Gallery at the Art School at Old Church is celebrating Garden State Garden, the 27th Annual New Jersey Small Works Show with 40 works of art by artists with a biographical connection to New Jersey. The exhibition is curated by Scot J. Wittman, a NJ arts professional, and runs through July 15, 2016. An opening reception with the artists will be Thursday, June 23 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. The show and opening reception are wheelchair accessible and free to the public. All are encouraged to attend for conversation and light refreshments to celebrate the arts.

Paintings, drawings, photographs and mixed media sculptures reflect the Garden State Garden theme in ways both literal and experimental. Wittman selected works that portrayed excellence in craft and concept, ensuring a wide variety of black and white work as well as color, garden citation as well as metaphoric reference, and realism as well as abstraction. From dozens and dozens of works, the juror winnowed the collection to works with which he was most impressed.  These works became the heart of the show, representing a range of artists living and working in NJ.
