Hillsborough, NJ - Wanda Radowski of Highlands NJ was selected to participate in “NJ350 Elements” unique photo experience.  What makes this exhibit different is the idea of representing the environment within the environment.   Images of New Jersey’s nature and wildlife are on display outdoors on large 40”h x 60”w water-resistant satin fabric, illuminated by natural light, moving with the elements.

In celebration of New Jersey’s 350th Anniversary, Creative Art Spaces, Danielle Austen Photography, XACT Studios and LexJet partnered to present NJ350 Elements at beautiful Duke Farms.  This unique exhibit captures the many beautiful photographic opportunities the Garden State offers.

Twenty-seven images were selected amongst amateur and professional photographers, 18 years and older. All Photographers entering this juried exhibit had to be from New Jersey and all images had to be taken in New Jersey. A panel of 4 judges represented by Danielle Austen, Nancy Edwards, Jim LaSala and Jim Roselli – professional artists and photographers selected the final images for NJ350 Elements.

Duke Farms was selected as the prime-viewing site due to their commitment to the environment.  Duke Farms is rich in ecological, horticultural and agricultural resources.  Many visitors enjoy the beauty of its natural setting, the diversity of its wildlife, and the scope and quality of its educational programs, demonstrations and research.

In addition to the outdoor exhibit, a video was created featuring additional finalist images. The goal is to continue to collect images, which will widely represent New Jersey’s nature and wildlife. Visit the NJ350 Elements on display at Duke Farms, 1112 Dukes Parkway West, Hillsborough, NJ 0884. The exhibit is free and open to the public.  You can view the selected images and video at www.NJ350Elements.org   (Ms. Radowski's work can be seen at 6:28 on the video.)
