At The Shore Today: Art Exhibition Draws on Religion, Good vs. Evil

PRESS OF ATLANTIC CITY
Robert Herlund's art explores concepts such as the relationship between good and evil, using dramatic contrasts in shading.
NEW JERSEY---Explore your artistic side by perusing "The Search for Bliss: Drawings by Robert Herlund," a new exhibition at the Noyes Arts Garage of the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. Herlund draws from religious and spiritual inspirations, including a mix of his lifelong interest in religions, "his exposure to both conventional and radical Christian doctrine," as well as mythology and Middle Eastern culture. Herlund grew up in Minnesota and was creative even as a child. For a short time he had a corporate career but ultimately turned back to his artistic roots. [link]
