Larry Kerner’s Photographs on Display at Bernardsville Library in June

June 2 @ 10:00 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
Free

Bernardsville Public Library is pleased to present "Stay, This Moment - Photographs by Larry Kerner.” The show will be on view from June 2 to June 28, 2019 at 1 Anderson Hill Road, Bernardsville. Hiking and camping while young introduced Mr. Kerner to the grandeur of nature and gave him respect for the preservation of wilderness. The West Coast piqued his interest, and he began capturing images on film in color and in black and white. Since then, his camera has been “his eyes.” His interpretations range from cloud-capped canyons to tumbling mountain streams and waterfalls. The images in this show have been captured on film and digital media. Mr. Kerner is a member of the Chatham Township Art League and the Vailsburg Camera Club of Springfield. He lives in Chatham Township, NJ. The show will be open for viewing during regular library hours, unless a meeting is in progress. For more information on the show, call the library at 908-766-0118.

The Importance of Being Earnest (Theater Production) @ the Farmstead Arts Center

June 2 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
NJ United States + Google Map
$15 – $20

Join us for the Lord Stirling Theater Company's production of Oscar Wilde's most well-known play. In mocking tradition, The Importance of Being Earnest continues to delight audiences by demonstrating that what seems important is not really important, and that a keen eye and sharp wit can cut to the chase of many situations. Fast, witty language keeps the story moving against the prim and proper backdrop of the English countryside in the late 1800s. This theatre classic is a gem to lighten your spirit and bring a smile to your face. The play will be hosted in the Farmstead's beautifully restored English Barn (ca. 1750 and ca. 1840). Make sure to dress for the weather! General admission tickets are $20. Student, senior, or Farmstead member tickets are $15. Please visit Farmstead's Eventbrite page (https://www.eventbrite.com/o/farmstead-arts-850333961) to order tickets in advance. Tickets available at the door - cash only. Show times: Friday, May 31st: 7:30pm Saturday, June 1st: 7:30pm Sunday, June 2nd: 4pm Friday, June 7th: 7:30pm Saturday, June 8th: 7:30pm Sunday, June 9th: 4pm
