In addition to monthly group exhibitions in their main gallery, Gallery U is now featuring a monthly solo exhibition by local artists on their boutique wall. September will highlight the work of Westfield photographer Michael Endy. This special exhibit will premiere the artist’s newest series of photographs titled Across Water.  

Each image in this series shows an American city as viewed from across a large body of water, at the same time of day, and utilizing a consistent horizon line. “I am experimenting with using the camera not as it was intended,” explains Endy, “but to purposely capture unfocused images. The result is painterly and soft, and allows for a viewer’s own interpretation of the subject.” These ethereal images leave more to the imagination than they give up in detail.

An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, September 4, 2015, from 6-8 PM. All are welcome. Artwork will be exhibited through October 5, 2015. Back to School: An Exhibition Celebrating New Jersey Art Teachers will be on exhibit in the main gallery.

February 14, 2018

I read with interest in a local newspaper regarding the Union county democrat party political infighting for their “county chair” selection.  There were 2 letters juxtaposed, each one listing supporters of either Senator Scutari or Fanwood Mayor Mahr, who are the two main people vying for the “boss” position.

Although I am a democrat I am not a committee ...
