The New Jersey Highlands Coalition, in association with the Morris Museum, is proud to announce its 6th Annual Highlands Juried Art Exhibit featuring the landscapes, flora, fauna, natural, cultural and historic resources of the Highlands of NY, NJ, PA and CT.

Artists are invited to submit work for an exhibit at the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey, from August through October, 2019.  New this year will be the addition of a Youth Category for artists under the age of 18, and a Sculpture/3-D category.  Selected entries will be featured in the Morris Museum’s spacious Hedley Gallery and the three top prize winners also will be shown at Studio 7 Fine Art Gallery in Bernardsville later in the year.

There will be a reception at the Morris Museum on September 12 from 6:30-8:30 pm, where prizes will be awarded. Thanks to generous donors, there will be a Grand Prize of $500, in addition to Second Place and Third Place awards of $300 and $200 respectively. Other prizes will include gift certificates for framing, printing and local events.  Selections from the exhibit will be featured on the New Jersey Highlands Coalition website and social media sites. Prize-winning images will accompany press releases to be sent to prominent NJ publications.
