"This is the group’s third time at Prallsville Mills and it has been a great venue to showcase these majestic animals at work, sport and play in the wild and dreams,” said the group’s founder/director, Sheila Barnes. “I’m also pleased to say this is NJEAA’s 20th anniversary, starting with local artists in 1999. We have been thrilled with the response of art/horse lovers to our shows over the years. We also want to remind readers that the horse is the state animal, so it’s appropriate for the equines to receive much-deserved attention. Prallsville Mills is a destination that showcases them so well.” 

The Sawmill at Prallsville Mills is “an historic site nestled along the Delaware River and Raritan Canal in the quaint town of Stockton, New Jersey," and as such is a lovely backdrop for this unique exhibition.
