Art Show to Benefit Franciscan Charities

We are delighted to announce a special art event on July 27, from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m., celebrating the work of Eric Aerts and benefiting Franciscan Charities.

Cast as a “trifecta evening of friendship, charity and art,” the event will feature cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and conversations along with a beautiful collection of oils, watercolors, and pastels in many sizes on display and for sale. Proceeds will go to support the continuing mission of Brother Paul Miller and Franciscan Charities. See the featured image here for additional details.

A bit about the artist:

Eric Aerts has devoted much of his life to refining his skills as a painter after careers as a professional photographer, photojournalist and restaurateur in New York.

Before returning to New Jersey last year to be with his family, Eric spent 20 years living in St. Julien, a tiny seacoast village in Brittany, France. Much of his work is inspired by the stunning landscape of the region known as Finistere --literally translating to "end of the earth." 

Eric has successfully pursued many interests but has always been pulled by a need to capture beauty and feeling through painting. He has been tireless, through many adversities, in his drive to improve and share his work.  

We hope to see you there!
