UNION, NJ –  Works by four local artists are part of The Union County Teen Arts Touring Exhibit currently on display through June 29th at the Les Malamut Gallery in the Union Public Library (1980 Morris Ave.) in Union. Scotch Plains artists were: Samra Shakeel, Dana Tokarzewski, and Julie Kim (Union Co. Vo-Tech); and Alina Alvarez (Hillcrest Academy)
 
The exhibit consists of 60 pieces of art selected from more than 650 visual art works shown at the 2015 Union County Teen Arts Festival held in March at Union County College in Cranford. The event is administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
 
“The artwork in this exhibit is exceptional. The fact that the artists are teenagers makes the show even more outstanding,” said Freeholder Chairman Mohamed Jalloh. “I encourage everyone to get out and see this fun, lively exhibit as it goes on tour throughout Union County.”
