The exhibition features an eclectic and quirky, diverse collection of abandonments, the somewhat unusual, and bucolic countryside scenes.

I like to offer you a glimpse of simple beauty that is often overlooked.” Debra Fedchin's work has been displayed as a

Over the years, Far Hills Race Meeting has given more than $18 million to support local health-care organizations. With its newly introduced pari-mutuel wagering program, Far Hills Race Meeting—which boasts the largest purses in the industry—is bringing steeplechase racing to new audiences, locally, nationally and globally. Historical Reference of “The Hunt” The Far Hills Race Meeting traces its origins to the Essex Hunt, a fox hunting event founded in Montclair, NJ in 1870. In 1913, the organizers of the Essex Hunt incorporated as the Essex Fox Hounds.
