The purpose of the PinelandsProject.org website is:
To share the vision of the PPC-PPA project.
Have a central location to communicate the Who,
What, When, Where, and Why about the kinds of information that artists will need to know in order to submit artwork for curation into the exhibit.
Submitting artwork to the exhibit is free and open to the public. 10% of all sales goes to the RWJ Hamilton Auxiliary, which is an extraordinary volunteer organization that raises funds for the hospital through a variety of events and activities. 90% of all sales will go to the artists. Thanks to generous donations by exhibit sponsors, there will not be any printing or framing fees for any images curated into the exhibit.
This is a great opportunity to explore the Pinelands, create new bodies of work, and make new friends at both the PPC and PPA.
Please feel free to post questions and comments on our blog. We hope to see lots of images submitted and suggestions for both textual and artistic content for the premiere of our exhibition at the Lakefront Gallery on January 16, 2020.

The Peace of Wild Things
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and I am free.
