      Exhibition: Photographs by Terry C. Wagner, “A Tour of NJ’s Gardens of Memory”

      In keeping with Halloween, Gallery on Main's October "Artist of the Month" exhibition features photographs highlighting the beauty of cemeteries by Dunellen, NJ-based artist Terry C. Wagner.

      With this series of photos, Terry’s goal is to capture some of the antique graves and funerary monuments in New Jersey and “preserve the art, the stories, the emotions.” Says Terry, “I am called to study and capture ancient burial grounds, (which are) the repository of the deepest emotions we humans can express.”

      She continues, “The ancient art of stone carving for graves is lost to us. Machines began producing sandblasted stones by 1890. A few artisans are out there honing this craft today.

      “My work tends to focus on the earth. These Gardens of Memory© are truly works of art in and of themselves. Walking among them touches my spirt and I listen to the calls that take me to-and-fro while nestled in the warmth of their lingering love. Cemeteries, graveyards, burial grounds — not scary at all! The true value of my work is that it speaks to another, that someone can ‘hear’ the photo and create their own message.”

      Cost: Free - FREE, and the artist's works are available for purchase
