Farmstead Arts will host The Exhibitor’s Co-op Art Show and Sale featuring the works of over a dozen of their members. The exhibition opens with a free reception with live music, refreshments and a chance to meet the artists.

Mike_Dziomba_-_On_FireExhibitor's Co-op is a New Jersey based group of artists meeting weekly to critique each other's work and present exhibitions. The group has displayed their art in galleries and museums across New York and New Jersey.  Farmstead Arts is their first show in Somerset County.  Member artists have enjoyed individual success with New York City gallery exhibits, commissions and been accepted into national and international juried shows. Many have won awards and some have been published as book illustrators and in art books. Images of many of the works to be in the show may be seen on the Farmstead’s website at (Image: On Fire by Mike Dziomba)
