Photographer Nancy Ori of Berkeley Heights Displays
Her Mixed Media Works at the Freeholders Gallery


ELIZABETH, NJ – An exhibit of mixed media artworks by photographer Nancy Ori of Berkeley Heights is on display through Tuesday, October 1, at the Freeholders Gallery in Elizabeth. Sponsored by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, the exhibit features 27 pieces of what Ms. Ori calls mixed media with pastel. The exhibit in the Freeholders Gallery at the Union County Administration Building, on Elizabethtown Plaza at Rahway Avenue in Elizabeth, is open to the public from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. on weekdays.

“We are pleased to showcase these colorful creations of Nancy Ori,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Cultural and Heritage Programs Advisory Board. “They are one-of-a-kind pieces that combine classic photographic and painting techniques.”

Nancy J. Ori is a respected international photographer and video producer for more than 35 years. She also teaches photography and painting workshops throughout the United States and in Europe. Nancy was affiliated for many years with the Ansel Adams Workshop in California. Aside from photographing landscapes and architecture in the West Coast tradition of her long-time mentor, she also ventures into other art forms by using pastels and other paint mediums to enhance a new series of “painterly” photographs.
