In philosophy, multiplicity can be defined as the multi-faceted nature of reality. The writer Italo Calvino described the concept of multiplicity in literature as seeing the world as a system of systems.  In our MULTIPLICITIES exhibition, this summer, our Drawing Rooms' walls will be covered with engaging systems of numerous, various and re-occurring aspects; arrangements of multiple shape, form, color and image.  Building with both simple and complex graphic forms through repetition and variation, pattern and contrast, each artist creates a cohesive vision expressive of their own perspective, yet enveloping the viewer in new experience.

Vibraphonist and composer Eldad Tarmu was professor of Jazz Studies at the "Richard Oschanitzky" Jazz School, Tibiscus University, in Timişoara, Romania. He currently teaches World Music Studies at Hudson County Community College in Jersey City, New Jersey. He has performed in over twenty-five countries around the world in various festivals and concert tours and has recorded seven albums.

Degise, County Executive, and the Board of Chosen Freeholders.
