The exhibition includes: watercolors that capture the expansive sea blazing with sunset or a quiet church nestled in the snow; delicate needlework rendered in spectacularly colorful quilts and a jacket that unites hands and hearts; photographs of the rugged power and grace of cascading waterfalls; imaginative digital art brought to dynamic heights by strokes of pastel and watercolor; the simple tenderness of children in repose and the majesty of an antique cathedral; broken pottery recycled into an elegant box in which to nestle favorite keepsakes; Chinese brush paintings, mobiles, bronze sculpture and more; real, surreal, abstract and indefinable. "Gifted" shows a taste for all seasons in a season for all tastes.

A visit to Fort Tilden, Gateway National Recreation Area in mid-fall is a gift in itself. Sparkling colors and spicy scents surround you as you walk through this wooded seaside national park.

Come share these gifts for all seasons, both natural and artistic.
