The New Jersey Highlands Coalition will sponsor a juried Art and Photography Exhibit in conjunction with its third annual Highlands Festival at Waterloo village in Byram Township on Sept. 19 and 20.

All 2D work (paintings, drawings, pastels, watercolors, photography, etc.) will be considered as long as it features the landscapes, flora, fauna, natural or cultural resources of the New Jersey Highlands. Some 3D work also be considered.

All artists over 18 years of age, regardless of experience are invited to enter. Winning artists and a selection of finalists will have their work featured in a special exhibit at the Morris Museum in Morristown to be held this Fall in conjunction with the Highlands Festival. All finalists’ work will be featured on digital display at the Festival in addition to the Festival's website and social media sites.

Curated by New Jersey photographer Dwight Hiscano, juried by a panel of prominent local artists, and judged by Angela Sergonis-Melchion, associate curator for the Morris Museum, the exhibit, and the display at the Festival offers artists an opportunity to reach a much wider audience than in past exhibits. Additional prizes will include gift certificates for framing, art supplies and outdoor equipment.

For more information, visit the "Activities" page on the Festival website: www.highlandsfestivalatwaterloo.org. To learn more about the Morris Museum, please visit www.morrismuseum.org.

Initial digital entries must be received by midnight on Sept. 8. Upon notification, winners’ work must be delivered, ready to hang, to the Morris Museum between Sept. 21 and Sept. 24, and picked up between Nov. 30 and Dec. 2.
