This Saturday September 11, 2010 the Sussex County Arts & Heritage Council will be hosting the 23rd Annual Skylands Juried Art Exhibition and Sale.
Included in the show is Naiad of the Lakes, a piece from a series depicting a fountain in Rome which contains figures representing Four water nymphs: the Naiad of the Oceans, the Naiad of the Rivers, the Naiad of the Lakes and the Naiad of the Underground waters.
Quite shocking when the fountain was constructed, these four completely naked young female figures, whose bodies soaked by the water that gushed from a large nozzle at the back, glittered in the sun producing exotic images.
The exhibition takes place during the Tour of Art on Main Street in Newton New Jersey.
Tour of Art is a weeklong art exhibition and sale that takes place twice annually. The event is produced by Main Street in cooperation with Newton's Spring Street Merchants. Regional artists are selected and matched with local businesses that host the artwork.
Opening Artists' Reception: Saturday, September 11, 4-7 pm. 133 Spring Street Newton
Admission: $15 - Members, $25- At the door.
Catered by Perona Farms.
