Reception for student artists and friends this Wednesday evening

A reception for the student artists and their family and friends is scheduled for 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 24.

In creating their pieces for the exhibit, this year's Ridge ceramics students created tile designs and "think big" sculptures that were influenced by their research and observations of the microcosmic World.

With the help of micro/macro photographic imagery, miniscule micro-organisms display their awesome physical attributes and inherent natural beauty, according to a release from the Somerset County Parks Commission, which operates the EEC.

The Somerset County Park Commission Environmental Education Center is located within Lord Stirling Park, in the Basking Ridge section of Bernards Township, and is nestled within 450 acres of the western portion of the Great Swamp Basin of the Passaic River. A swamp vivarium, and an environmentally based library are located within the Center itself.

Information on this event and other Somerset County Park Commission activities may be found online at or by calling 908-766-2489.
