TOMS RIVER – The Toms River Branch of the Ocean County Library will host “Water Elements” by Marissa Schaeffer in the McConnell Gallery throughout the month of January.
Schaeffer studied photography at Montclair University where she received a bachelor’s degree in art education. Her inspiration is drawn from being in nature, exploring, and travelling to new places.
Schaeffer states, “My name, Marissa, means ‘of the sea.’ Perhaps that’s the reason I’ve always felt a connection to water. No matter where I go I always find myself drawn to water, be it the sea, rivers, lakes, ponds, or waterfalls. In ‘Water Elements,’ I have captured the beauty of all these bodies of water and the living things within them. Take a deep breath and get lost in the tranquility of how water makes you feel.”
The branch is located at 101 Washington Street.
“Water Elements” is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch at 732-349-6200, ext. 5100.12-11-2018-exhibit.pdf
