Cathy Miller Photography at Warren County Hall Gallery

The Warren County Cultural & Heritage Commission is pleased to announce a show of Cathy Miller's photographs of music performers on display at the Hall Gallery of the Warren County Administration Building on Rt. 519 in Belvidere.

The works are original photos shot both backstage and during performances. Cathy Miller lives in an old farmhouse in downtown Asbury which has been home for nearly 20 years, after relocating from Essex County. Of her work and career as a photographer, Cathy Miller says, ‘I've worked as a photographer for over three decades. My mainstay for many of those early years was music photography, getting a start at The Dirt Club, in Bloomfield, NJ and The Meadowbrook in Cedar Grove, NJ, and being a regular contributor to The Aquarian Weekly. ‘Over time, I've collaborated with hundreds of wonderful people on countless projects, not just music, and for the past four years contributed monthly to “Inside Jersey” magazine, specializing in food and cocktail photography. My work spans soup to nuts (with octopus and oxtail thrown in the mix) ...press conferences to poetry readings ...multi-day music festivals to informal shows ...local schools to gala fundraisers ...weddings to reunions to birthdays and other celebrations ...family portraits to corporate head shots ...business seminars to networking events ...groundbreakings to grand openings...farmers to factories ...construction to demolition ...and the New Jersey Roller Derby. You get the picture.’

The Wayne Dumont Jr. Administration Hall Gallery, on Route 519 in Belvidere, is open to the public during regular business hours during weekdays and is an accessible location. The Warren County Cultural & Heritage Commission sponsors this art show with support from the Warren County Freeholders, and partial funding from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Department of State, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Cathy Miller’s photography will be on display through September. Individuals preferring assistance may call the relay service at 711. For further information please call (908) 453-4381.

YET ANOTHER NICE SUMMER SUNDAY CONCERT SERIES IN SWEET & SUNNY DOWNTOWN OXFORD

Hot Seats at Shippen Manor August 31, 5 PM

The Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission is happy to present The Hot Seats in a free concert on the lawn of Shippen Manor, Sunday, August 31 at 5 PM. The Hot Seats a five person group of acoustic musicians from Richmond, Virginia play a type of music that has been described as acoustic mayhem incorporating elements of vaudeville, jug-band music, bluegrass, old-time string-band music and various Eastern European musical traditions.

The Hot Seats, who have been together since 2002, consist of Josh Bearman on mandolins, banjos, and bass, Ben Belcher on 3 finger banjo and bass), Ed Brogan on guitar, Graham DeZarn on fiddle, and Jake Sellers on washboard and bass. If, like Frank Zappa, you believe humor belongs in music then the Hot Seats are just your cup of tea. As Josh Bearman the band’s lead man points out, ‘Our audiences are less appalled by us now — at least until they hear us.’ With song titles like ‘Rats in the Kitchen’, ‘I Want to Hold Your Ear’, and ‘Sell Your Babies’ in their repertoire, this concert will not be a usual music experience.

This free event starts at 5 P.M. and is sponsored by the Warren County Cultural & Heritage Commission, supported by the Warren County Freeholders, and is funded in part by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, a Partner Agency of the National Endowment for the Arts. The lawn at Shippen Manor is reasonably accessible and accessible lavatories are available.

 Bring Blankets or Lawn Chairs, a Picnic, alcohol free coolers, a Couple of Friends & Your Best Relaxing Mood on Sunday, starting at 5 PM on the Shippen Manor Lawn in Oxford.  Individuals preferring speech or hearing assistance may call the relay service at 711.
