The Atlantic Highlands Arts Council is pleased to present "Mood Swings", works by Carla Valentino in our windows from July 27 - September 4, 2021.
Carla Valentino is a New Jersey Shore Area mixed media artist and art educator. She teaches Fine Art at Red Bank Catholic High School and is also an adult mixed media instructor at Colorest Art Supplies in Red Bank.
Originally a painter, Carla works in a wide variety of media, including acrylics, watercolor, papers, prints, ink etc., most recently incorporating recycled materials especially plastic bottles, cardboard packaging and found objects into her work.
She has participated in a wide variety of shows and exhibits in and around the shore area and her work is in several public and many private collections
Primary influences include nature, particularly the beach and ocean, personal history, the passage of time, as well as the basic elements of line, shape, color and texture. The works of Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse and Robert Rauschenberg have also been significantly influential, among others.

The Atlantic Highlands Arts Council at 54 First Avenue in Atlantic Highlands, NJ is on the main street in AH, the lights in the windows are on 24/7, and hundreds of cars pass the Arts Council every day on their way to the SeaStreak Ferry to Manhattan. We are located right across the street from the Atlantic House & Copper Canyon, both extremely popular bar/restaurants; next door to Christine's another popular eatery; down the street from Nicolas Creamery, Una Pizza Napoletana , home of the famous Pizza Pope and Kunya Siam, the best Thai Restaurant in Monmouth County and our local vegan hotspot, JUS Organic.
The Windows at the Atlantic Highlands Art Council are available for rental on a 6-week basis starting in
January, 2020. We'd prefer that one artist rent both windows so we can have as unified and striking a presentation as possible.
Window submissions will be selected by members of the Exhibition Committee of the AHAC.
BOOKING NOW FOR 2022!
