A Berkeley Heights photographer's mixed media artwork is on display through Oct. 1 at the Freeholders Gallery in Elizabeth.
The exhibit of Nancy Ori's work features 27 pieces of what she describes as mixed media with pastel.
"We are pleased to showcase these colorful creations of Nancy Ori," said Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski, liaison to the Union County Cultural and Heritage Programs Advisory Board.
"They are one-of-a-kind pieces that combine classic photographic and painting techniques."
Ori is a respected international photographer and video producer with more than 35 years experience. She also teaches photography and painting workshops throughout the United States and in Europe. Ori was affiliated for many years with the Ansel Adams Workshop in California.
Aside from photographing landscapes and architecture in the West Coast tradition of her long-time mentor, she also ventures into other art forms by using pastels and other paint mediums to enhance a new series of "painterly" photographs.
The exhibit is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the gallery, Union County Administration Building, Rahway Avenue, Elizabeth.
