"Colors In Motion"

The Gallery at the Metuchen Public Library welcomes “Colors In Motion” by artist Enrique Zaldivar.

Landscape. A metaphor of life itself?  Through practiced acrylic techniques, Enrique uses a combination of monochrome palettes, vibrant hues, light and illumination to answer the question, 'What would a world without color be like?' Enrique was born in Cuba and studied art at the Professional Academy of Fine Arts El Alba. He now resides in New Jersey. To learn more please visit:

The exhibit will remain on display from September 1 through October 30.

The Library reserves the right to record or photograph library users for publicity purposes, unless an individual files a Photo Opt Out Release Form. Please view the Photo Opt Out Policy.
