The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders will recognize local artists and present awards at a reception on Wednesday, May 8, at the 12th Annual Exhibit and Contest for County of Union employees and their families. The free reception and awards ceremony will begin at 5:30 p.m., at the Elizabethtown Gas Company, located in the Liberty Hall Center, 1085 Morris Ave. in Union.
 
“This show offers a chance for our Union County employees and family members to shine,” said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Cultural and Heritage Programs Advisory Board. “The artwork that they do in their spare time is outstanding, and we are proud to display it in the beautiful atrium space of the Liberty Hall Center. We are grateful to Elizabethtown Gas for hosting the program, and to the National Arts Program Foundation for funding the prize awards.”
 
Presented in partnership with the National Arts Program, the exhibit will be open weekdays from May 8 to May 28, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
 
“The Freeholders share the goal of the National Arts Program Foundation to reach as many people as possible of all ages, offering them a chance to show their creations,” said Freeholder Chairman Linda Carter. “We invite you to view this exhibit of exceptional artwork at the Liberty Hall Center during the month of May.”
