MEMBER SHOW OPENS SUNDAY @ HUNTERDON ART MUSEUM

Members Highlight Show
WHEN: opening reception Sunday, November 15, 2-4 PM; through January 3, 2016
WHERE
: Hunterdon Art Museum, 7 Lower Center St., Clinton


About two years ago, Arturo Cabrera was a familiar face at the Museum as a summer camp coordinator overseeing volunteers and managing supplies.
But when Cabrera returns to the Museum this Sunday, his visit will be for an entirely different purpose. Cabrera was chosen last year from the Museum’s Members Exhibition for a solo show, which will run until Jan. 3, 2016. Juror Darren McManus, a painter and educator at Raritan Valley Community College, selected Cabrera to be featured in the 2015 Members Highlight exhibition.

Join us for the opening reception of our Member Highlight show on Sunday, Nov. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m.

“I am very humbled, grateful and happy to have this opportunity,” said the Ecuadorean-born painter, who graduated from Lehigh Valley Charter High School of the Performing Arts in 2012. “I still can't believe it to be honest. I have such respect for the Museum and what they do for the community. Their shows are always so inspiring, interesting and beautiful.”
