DESCRIPTION

Visitors are invited to explore a "Naturalist's Dinner Party, - a Mycological Study Expressed Through Clay,” a free exhibit of ceramic sculptural forms at the Environmental Education Center, 190 Lord Stirling Road in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.

The exhibit is open daily from Saturday, October 19 through Sunday, November 17, 2019 (except Election Day and Veteran’s Day) from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

Visitors to the exhibit will experience the fascinating world of the fungi kingdom through the talented hands of local artist Jodi Sommer. She has focused her sculptures on the the mycological universe. According to Sommer, the exhibit captures the spirit, the essence and the spontaneity of the remarkable organisms rather than a direct replication.
