Artwork by Gerda Liebmann

Highlands, NJ - Highlands Borough Arts Council (HBAC) invites you to participate in a unique collaboration between international artist and curator Gerda Liebmann and Freshowner William Nassar.  Experience Ms. Liebmann’s evocative art in the intimacy of William’s cozy dining salon at the artist’s reception, Sunday, November 23 from 2pm to 4pm, 114 Bay Avenue, Highlands.

Feast Your Eyes…Feed Your Soul is a sensory journey through a series of multi-dimensional paintings.     Relish your thoughts and savor the depth of each of these paintings.  Witness how technique influences texture.  Some works feature the ancient encaustic technique where pigments are added to melted beeswax to create a surface that is both sculpted as well as painted…other works use acrylic layering to create rich palettes while others are enhanced through pastels.
