The Somerset County 4-H Fair, which is located at North Branch Park in Bridgewater, is a county tradition since 1947.

All day (10 am-10pm), free professional & amateur entertainment can be enjoyed as well.

The War on the World : National Open Call for Artwork

$10

Frontline Arts and Frontline Paper are inviting artists nationwide to submit work for an upcoming group show: "The War on the World". The curators of the exhibition “The War On The World” extend to you an invitation to submit up to three works for consideration to hang in the Frontline Arts Gallery throughout November, 2019. “The War On The World” confronts the reality that the leading polluter of our planet is the U.S. military. Given the precarious state of the earth, with our country hostage to mindless greed and racism, fear and hate, the curators hope to construct a vivid picture of where we are, where we could be going and what we can do about it. Our thoughts are to begin immediately and then to expand this exhibit into later next year. In advance of the 2020 elections, we wish to be seen, maybe heard, perhaps inspire. Does it matter? Humanity is part of the Eco-system. As artists, we know something of humanity. So why not. As one great artist of the environment, Edward Abbey, famously said, “Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul."
