A month long spectacular exhibit is now at the Millburn Library. All the artists are from Millburn. Many of their art pieces however, were inspired or created in far away places: Spain, Ireland , Tibet, Germany, France and China. Art residency abroad experienced by Millburn artists now makes them international competitors. Oil paintings, art glass and ceramic, photography, ink and pen, monoprint, water color, gouache, sculpture – all these mediums and exciting styles of art are on view to dazzle the Library visitor .
As if this were not enough, the exhibit showcases 12 works by 2014 Township Scholarship recipients. 12 AP Art scholars whose second and third year portfolios won the admiration of the Art Advisory Committee professionals who judge the portfolios each year. Now in its 9th year, the Millburn AP Scholarship sends senior art scholars off to college with art supplies for college from Jerry’s Artists Outlet, Gift certificates from Art Advisory, free framing, Rizzo Art and Frame, Special Printing supplies and Gifts from Staples, and merchandise donated by local merchants, Jalm and Co., and Elements of Style.
On May 19th Art Advisory will honor Millburn Art Scholars at a reception for friends and family at the Millburn Library. The internationally inspired show runs at the Library Gallery till May 30th.

“This stunning visual of Oscar Peterson’s is why he won a prestigious award to study abroad from The New York Arts Student League. The Award and his studies in Madrid, led him to give back to Millburn, his “Point of Origin” and become a member volunteer with Art Advisory. Oscar’s art residencies led him to make exciting art choices. As an Artist and Dad, Oscar Peterson lives and works mostly in Millburn where he raised his family. We are so fortunate to have such an inspired Volunteer and gifted artist on Art advisory Committee.”
