Lincroft, NJ –The Brookdale Community College Sandy Hook Field Station will host a display of watercolor and acrylic paintings at the Environmental Field Station, Building 53 on Fort Hancock near the historic Lighthouse. The Meet-the-Artists Opening Reception, open to the community, will be held Thursday, August 19 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The works featuring Sandy Hook subjects will be on exhibit through August 27. The reception and exhibit are free.

Watercolor instructor David Dziemian’s class introduced students to the techniques and processes of watercolor: the washes, texture applications, brush manipulations and stretched paper.

Amy Paris taught the Acrylic Painting class designed for more experienced students. Utilizing weekly critique sessions, the students evaluated their work with experimental techniques with media, size format and construction in context with problems in form and subject approach.

Twenty eight students were enrolled in the classes with six students taking both the Watercolor and Acrylic offerings.

“If you’ve not been out to this area of Sandy Hook, take this opportunity to enjoy the relaxing drive out through Monmouth County’s beautiful bay and oceanfront scenery. View our artists’ inspired works and enjoy light refreshments with us,” said Bob Macaluso, Brookdale’s Sandy Hook Field Station Manager.

For free access to the event, inform the attendant at the Sandy Hook entrance toll booth to the park that your destination is the Brookdale Community College Art Show. The Brookdale Field Station is located 300 feet west of the Sandy Hook Lighthouse.
