Accent Gallery will host a reception with Robert Baum on Saturday, May 24th, from 3pm-5pm.  The featured exhibit, Light and Shadow, will consist of original works in the style of contemporary realism for which Baum is best known. The exhibit will be on view from May 19th through June 1st and marks the beginning of Accent Gallery’s 2014 season. 

Baum’s awareness of brilliant color is especially evident in this collection of paintings; his affinity for color is a direct result of nature’s influence.  He explains, “I bring decades of plein air painting to bear on my studio work”.  The result of this coupling is sublime.  

Baum maintains a studio along the Great Egg Harbor River, where he is able to immerse himself frequently in the natural light conveyed in his works.  After completing a master’s degree in education, Baum received further certification in the areas of art education and educational supervision.  An artist member of the Noyes Museum of Art of the Richard Stockton College (Oceanville, NJ), Baum exhibits widely throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

Accent Gallery is located at 956 Asbury Avenue in Ocean City, NJ.  For more than forty years the gallery has proudly represented fine art and American Craft. For questions about the exhibit call 609.398.3577 or visit
