The January Invitational Exhibition at the Art Alliance of Monmouth County will feature works by artist members of Shore House, curated byShore House Executive Director, Susan Mazzeo. Artists included are Carol Castellano, Sam Duval–Cofer, Francheska Franco, Chelsea Gould, Mary Husowech, Kimberlee Jennings, Kevin Reilly, Sherone Rogers, Ann Witman, and Kerri Zeblisky. They will show work in figure, lancscape, abstraction and fantasy, painted in either acrylic or water color. Many of the artists exhibit in NJ and beyond, and several have sold their work. Shore House started in Long Branch in 2011 and is described as "a community organization dedicated to providing resources and supportive services for adults in Monmouth County living with a mental illness." Here members come and practice a "Work Ordered Day", then return to their homes in the evening. Members work with staff, as colleagues, in operations, program development, advertising, new member orientation, outreach, hiring and fundraising, and all gain real job skills. Art is always encouraged, although not specifically a part of the work day. The Long Branch facility has 120 members currently and is under the worldwide Clubhouse movement, set up 70 years ago for helping people cope with their mental illness. The exhibition is on view January 5 - 27, Tuesday – Saturday, 12-4 PM.
