FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WORKS OF NEW JERSEY ARTIST MARK OBERNDORF FEATURED IN MIDDLESEX COUNTY MUSEUM’S ICONS OF AMERICAN CULTURE: HISTORY OF NEW JERSEY DINERS
The renowned Bergen County artist shares his iconic New Jersey diner images starting April 12th

WYCKOFF, NJ (April 2015)- On April 12th a year-long exhibit opens at the Middlesex County Museum’s Cornelius Low House paying homage to New Jersey’s classic diners.  This immersive art experience honors the unique status New Jersey has attained as the “land of diners.”  With their colorful neon signs reflecting off stainless steel surfaces, the Garden State’s diners have long been an inspiration for realist painter Mark Oberndorf.  Several of the artist’s oil-on-linen canvases will be presented in the show.  From the timeless Bendix Diner to landmark White Manna, Oberndorf’s name has become synonymous with capturing these local landmarks for generations to come. 
“It is an honor to be included in such a meaningful tribute to these timeless structures which have provided me with so much wonderful subject matter over the years,” said Oberndorf.    The show which runs from April 12th  2015 through  June 26th  2016, encourages visitors to explore the beauty and distinctiveness of New Jersey’s diner culture. 
Oberndorf observes, “These businesses have long served as essential gathering places for their local communities.  They nourished the souls of these locales well beyond the food they served.”
