In an effort to record and preserve New Jersey’s history, five artists worked together and individually to produce “Hanging Together,” on display at Medford Leas through April 29.
The show, in the Campus Art Gallery, is on display 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and is free and open to the public. Medford Leas is at One Medford Leas Way off Route 70.
Marlene Craig, one of the artists featured, has lived in Burlington County for more than 40 years, and said she enjoys painting local scenes and the history behind them. Her watercolor paintings have been on display throughout the county, including at the Mount Laurel Library and the Bordentown Presbyterian Church.
Irvane Spracklin, a Mount Holly resident also featured in the gallery, is known for her series of paintings depicting the Pine Barrens, including the legend of the Jersey Devil, as well as various New Jersey landmarks, including Buzby’s General Store in Woodland and the Atlantic City skyline.
Other artists featured are Eleanor Mink, Pam Wallenhurst and Joyce McAfee.
