The New Jersey Highlands Coalition, in association with the Morris Museum, is proud to announce its 5th Annual Highlands Art and Photography 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 to be shown this Winter at the Morris Museum in Morristown, New Jersey. Winning entries will be shown in a special exhibit at the Museum which will run from January 9 through February 18, 2018.  There will be an opening reception on Monday, January 11 from 6:30-8:30 PM, at which time prizes will be awarded.

This year, thanks to a generous donor, first prize will be $500; second prize $300 and third prize $200. Other prizes will include gift certificates for framing and printing. Selections from both exhibits 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. The three top prize winners also will be shown at Studio 7 Fine Art Gallery in Bernardsville throughout the month of March, 2018.
