Laurelton Art Society on display at Brielle Library


BRIELLE — Brielle Public Library’s latest art exhibit featuring the Laurelton Art Society will be on display through the end of the year, as the group celebrates its 40th anniversary.

The Laurelton Art Society has been showcased at the library every fall for the past five years, according to Gail Williams, a volunteer at the library who serves as the gallery coordinator.

“We’re happy to have them, especially since they’re celebrating 40 years,” Ms. Williams said. “There’s a lot of talent.”


The exhibit is on display in the library’s reading room, which has been used as a gallery space to showcase local artists for at least 10 years, Ms. Williams said, adding that she organizes four art shows per year with each lasting about three months.

Ms. Williams said she is grateful to have a beautiful space to display the equally beautiful pieces of art, as well as an appreciative audience.

Lou Riccio, 89, of Brick, is one of the many artists displaying their artwork at the Brielle Library.
