UNION COUNTY, NJ - A selection of artworks from the “Art from the Heart” fine arts program, a partnership between Summit's Visual Arts Center of New Jersey and SAGE Eldercare that serves Spend-a-Day seniors through weekly arts workshops conducted by an art therapist, are on display through February 14 at the Union County Freeholders Gallery.

Through engagement with the creative process, "Art from the Heart" provides benefits to participants including increased self-esteem and mental acuity. Now in its 16th year, Art from the Heart is made possible in part by a History, Education, Arts Reaching Thousands (HEART) Grant from the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders. 

The Freeholders Gallery is located on the sixth floor of the Union County Administration Building, located at Elizabethtown Plaza in Elizabeth. Gallery hours are 9 am to 5 pm, weekdays.
