Back to School: An Exhibition Celebrating the Talents of New Jersey Art Teachers at Gallery U
Opening reception (all are welcome) Thursday, August 7, 2014 from 6-8 PM Artwork exhibited through September 8, 2014 Far too often the talented personal work of teachers are overlooked due to the fact that most teachers are wrapped up in teaching our children and do not have the time to promote their own work. BACK TO SCHOOL offers New Jersey art teachers the opportunity to exhibit their artwork in a public forum. This exhibit will include artwork of various mediums and styles by art teachers in K-university level in both public and private settings.
