New Jersey Equine Artists’ Association’s eighth biennial national juried show and sale, “NJEAA Art of the Horse,” will open with a public reception, and an opportunity to meet the artists on Sunday, May 20, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at Prallsville Mills, 33 Risler Street, Stockton. The exhibit will be on display through Friday, June 15 and will be open Thursdays through Sundays, 11:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. or by appointment.
NJEAA has hosted the biennial national juried event since 2002. This is their second time at Prallsville Mills. The show will feature painting, sculpture and photography of horses at work, sport and play, in the wild and in dreams, by some of the finest equine artists working today.
NJEAA founder and director Sheila Barnes comments: “I’m proud to say this is the group’s 19th anniversary, starting with local artists in 1999, and we have been thrilled with the public’s response to our exhibits over the years. The horse has been celebrated through art since prehistoric cave paintings…and incidentally, is New Jersey’s State Animal. If you love the equines you should not miss this show.”
The Sawmill at Prallsville Mills is “a historic site nestled along the Delaware River and Raritan Canal in the quaint town of Stockton, New Jersey,” and will serve as a charming backdrop for this stunning exhibition.
