Pine Shores Art Association presents Ferdinand Leger

MANAHAWKIN –    Kate Nearpass Ogden, art history professor at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, will discuss Ferdinand Leger on Monday, November 18th at 7 p.m. at the Stafford branch of the Ocean County Library.

Born in rural France in 1881, and starting out as an impressionist, Leger later became one of the major cubist painters. He is known for his bold use of primary colors and this, in combination with his attempt to create art that “everyone can understand,” became his legacy and inspired many pop artists.  

There will also be a reception beginning at 6 p.m. honoring Pine Shores Art Association artists Mary Walker Baptiste, Giorgio Bonnorumma, Lee Fricke, Paul Hartelius, Ilomay Pedicini, and Linda Saladino whose art is on display at the library. Artwork is for sale through participating artists.

The Stafford branch is located at 129 N. Main St. in Manahawkin. This program is free and open to the public. Please register either in person, by calling: (609) 597-3381, or by visiting our website at
