“Artwork will sell for no more than $200, with 40 percent going to Friends of Historic Flemington. We expect more than 100 paintings and mixed media items,” says Langley.

“Most of the pieces will be no larger than 11x14 inches, no smaller than 8x10, but we will have some surprises too.” Artists use various media — from paint, pencil and pastel, to photography, fabric and collage. Purchased artwork may be taken home immediately.

The organization welcomes donations, whether or not people buy artwork. For art show details and artist registration, go to www.FriendsofHistoricFlemington.com; click on Art Show.

Friends of Historic Flemington supports adaptive reuse of the borough’s historic buildings. Its members believe that demolition of the Union Hotel and three other buildings in the heart of the borough’s historic district is misguided and unnecessary, as explained on its website.
