The Brick Township Historical Society will reopen its Havens Homestead Museum, located on Herbertsville Road, for the new season April 11.
The museum will be open on “opening day” from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, said Jane Fabach, the group’s press secretary. There will be a special exhibit honoring the “rich cultural heritage of Brick Township’s artists,” which dates back to Clara Stroud Colvin and a meeting of artists in her Herbertsville studio on September 18, 1939 and the founding of the Laurelton Art Society, Fabach said.
The exhibit is entitled “A Celebration of Brick Township,” and it includes beautiful watercolors, pastels and oil paintings by some of the most influential artists of the Jersey Shore.
The show will run from April 11 through May 9 during regular museum hours – Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 12 noon and Sundays from 12 noon to 2 p.m. There is no admission charge for either a tour of the museum or to see the exhibit, though donations are gratefully accepted.
The museum is closed all major holiday weekends, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. For more information on the activities of the society see its Facebook page, visit www.bricktwphistoricalsociety.com or call 732-785-2500.
