Union County Teen Arts Exhibit on Display at Les Malamut Gallery in Union

UNION, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce that the 2012 Union County Teen Arts Touring Exhibit is on display at the Les Malamut Gallery located in the lower level of the Union Public Library, 1980 Morris Avenue in Union. The art exhibit is on display through October 26th during regular library hours. For more information on the gallery, please visit: http://lesmalamutartgallery.wordpress.com/.

The exhibit consists of 61 pieces of art selected from more than 700 visual art works shown at the 2012 Union County Teen Arts Festival held in March at Union County College. The annual event is administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs in the Department of Parks and Community Renewal.

“The artwork in this exhibit is exceptional,” said Freeholder Chairman Alexander Mirabella.  “The fact that the artists are teenagers makes the show even more outstanding. I encourage everyone to get out and see this fun, lively exhibit as it goes on tour throughout Union County.”
