SUMMIT, NJ - "Cosmic Garden Series," featuring pen and ink drawing by nationally-known artist Lynne Friedman, will serve as Reeves-Reed Arboretum's debut art exhibition of the 2018 season.

Opening at the Wisner House Gallery February 11 with an artist reception from 2 - 4 p.m. -- and continuing through May 13 -- the "Cosmic Garden Series" began with two art residencies – one at the Julia & David White Art Residency in Costa Rica near the Montevideo Rain Forest and the other at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Ireland.

As the series progressed and Friedman returned to her home in the Mid-Hudson Valley, new ideas flowed with the evolving seasonal changes. The artist says, “I find inspiration in the indomitable cycles of the natural world, and it is that impulse that transforms the experience and idea into visual form.”

She is represented in many corporate and private collections throughout the country.

All the works are for sale, and the artist will donate 30% of all purchases to Reeves-Reed Arboretum.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
