Trenton, NJ – Showcasing the talents of New Jersey’s homegrown artists, First Lady Mary Pat Christie yesterday unveiled a new selection of landscape artwork that will be on display at Drumthwacket, the Governor’s official residence, through July 2014. The New Jersey Impressions exhibit is part of the Drumthwacket Foundation’s arts education initiative to introduce visitors to different genres of art created by recognized New Jersey artists both past and present.
“I’m delighted to have this opportunity to share the creative gifts of these outstanding artists with our residents through this wonderful new exhibit,” said Mrs. Christie. “Each piece is unique in expressing the artists’ impressions and pride in New Jersey. The Governor and I are proud to be able to use Drumthwacket to feature these amazing artists from across the state.”
The new artwork uses a wide range of media, including pastel, oil, egg tempera, acrylic, watercolor and photography to capture New Jersey’s landscapes in all dimensions.
