My collection of 10 high-definition metal prints from my home county, Union County, is now on display at the Commissioners Gallery in the County Administration Building in the courthouse complex in Elizabeth, NJ. Below is the quoted text from the Union County press release about the exhibit.  I am thankful for this opportunity!

"Stunning Photographs of Nature’s Artistry on Display at Commissioners’ Gallery, Dec. 12 – Jan. 27"

"The Union County Board of County Commissioners is proud to present “Scenic Union County,” a selections of works by the photographer Jacki Dickert. Ms. Dickert’s photographs will be on display from Monday, December 12 to Friday, January 27 at the Commissioners’ Gallery, located on the 6th floor of the Union County Administration Building, at 10 Elizabethtown Plaza in midtown Elizabeth.

“Ms. Dickert provides us with a whole new way of seeing the beauty that surrounds us, and she renews our appreciation for the natural heritage that is ours to protect and preserve,” said Union County Commissioner Chair Rebecca L. Williams. “As stewards of Union County’s public parks, we encourage everyone to stop by and enjoy this enriching exhibit.”

The Commissioners’ gallery is open during regular weekday business hours, and on Thursday evenings when public Commissioner meetings are in session. To view the schedule of meetings visit ucnj.org/commissioners/schedule.

Ms. Dickert’s photographs have been showcased in both solo and group shows at galleries throughout New Jersey, and her work has been published in magazines, book covers and numerous online blogs. She taught at Winfield Elementary School for 18 years before retiring in 2019 to devote herself to art and the arts community full time. She teaches photography classes to people of all ages, and is an active member of the Camera Naturalist Photo Club and speaker and judge throughout the NJ Federation of Camera Clubs and other arts organizations, including the annual Union County Teen Arts Festival.

She was recently honored with the First Place award in the Ansel Adams contest at the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown, New York, and her work has been selected for display at the new Terminal A at Newark-Liberty Airport.

In a volunteer capacity with environmental organizations, Ms. Dickert also offers her art and skills for conservation purposes and self-publishes the annual “World of Wonder” photography calendar.

The Commissioners’ Gallery was created more than 20 years ago to help connect visual artists and arts organizations to the Union County community. Exhibits are coordinated by the Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, a division of the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation.
