Located in the main hall of Trail Conference Headquarters, our art gallery is celebrating the close of a successful second year and has many exciting exhibitions lined up for 2018.

Gregory Frux’s paintings and etchings of “Wild Landscapes, Near and Far,” on display through Jan. 5, ends our second season. The New Year brings a new exhibit, "Hiker, Who Are You?," opening Jan. 8. This show features hiker portraits and stories and can be seen through March 6. An opening reception was held on Jan. 11.

In the spring, Pete Tilgner, a dedicated Trail Conference volunteer and former instructor of photography, will display his photographs. Then, we will once again display the creativity of Joyce Kilmer Elementary students—the 2017 showcase of art by 4th and 5th grade participants of the Mahwah Gifted and Talented Program was a hit. Later, expect to see a group show called “Winging It!,” featuring birds and bugs, as well as a show on botanical art and a solo artist show (TBA). Additionally, the Art Selection Committee is discussing presentations featuring art talks and demonstrations.

The Trail Conference Art Gallery is located at 600 Ramapo Valley Road in Mahwah, N.J. and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stay tuned for upcoming events.
