The annual Member, Student, Faculty Exhibition includes work by LBIF
members, art faculty, and their students at the Foundation. The show is
open to everyone in these groups. This annual show is described by the
Art Committee as "a celebration of the art produced by our Foundation
family," and the "exhibition as a whole is a work of joyous creativity."

"The School of Social Work at
Monmouth University will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary in
the 2014-2015 academic year.Forty years
of preparing social workers at either the baccalaureate level or since 1998 at
the graduate level is quite an accomplishment.We are quite proud of our alumni and their achievements and look forward
to celebrating all throughout the 2014-2015 academic year. We are equally proud
that our graduate program has also been recognized in the 60th
position as a “Top 100” program by US News and World Report.
One of our first events that
will kick off our anniversary year will be an “Art Take Away for Education” on
June 20, 2014.This event will be held
in Rechnitz Hall, a brand new Art Gallery building on the beautiful Monmouth
University campus.The “take away”
guarantees that everyone who comes to this event will leave with a piece of
donated original art, whether it is sculpture or framed painting.All proceeds will be put towards scholarships
in social work for our graduate students.
If you are interested in making a donation of one of your pieces of original art that will be part of the take
away and silent auction during this evening, please print this information. Monmouth University is planning on photographing a select group of pieces and putting them on a
website for invited guests to view before the event along with information
about you and your work."

I was honored to be included in the 35th Annual Juried Exhibit at the Monmouth Museum. Please visit the Museum before March 9th, 2014 to see the exhibit comprised by approximately 80+ artists chosen from close to 600 entries.
If you have never been to Thompson Park- it's a must do/ must see!! It's a beautiful facility with hundreds of classes and activities happening yearly. Top notch staff and instructors, I can't recommend them any more highly. It's my pleasure to continue teaching Fused Glass - many of my students come back 3 or 4 times. The price of the class and materials is an excellent value. Here is the upcoming schedule:
