The Millburn-Short Hills Art Center, one of the oldest art associations in New Jersey, was formed in 1940 as a not for profit organization with simple purposes. MSHAC encourages art education and appreciation; commends the work of its members and other individuals and arts groups; offers opportunities for growth in the arts and the development of local talent, and sponsors programs by highly qualified presenters for its members and the community. Most MSHAC members are visual artists — amateurs and professionals and whatever is in between — who share those goals and a love of art. In addition to mounting their own exhibitions and demonstrations, the center’s members join together several times a year to show their work in such venues as the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn and the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown as well as libraries, hospitals, community centers and corporate offices. MSHAC members share the belief that visual art has recuperative powers for its creators and its viewers. We take great pleasure, therefore, in joining Atlantic Health to exhibit the work of our members. Additional information is available at www.mshac.org.

India Blake is an internationally known photographer who has had images published in many magazines and books.
India Blake was born in Cambridge Massachusetts. After attending Sarah Lawrence where she studied European literature, India joined the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in Manhattan, mainly focusing on voice, dance and acting. India performed in New York as well as being a part of an ensemble cast who toured the Czech Republic. Being from an artistic family, India did not limit herself to just performing arts, she also concentrated on three dimensional forms and as a result her large scale sculpture "Mood Stone" is now a part of the permanent collection of the Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey. India's strongest passion yet is photography, which also is her full time job. Her fine art landscapes and portraits have been shown in numerous galleries.
For India Blake, photography is a way of sharing the things she is passionate about. Though her style is mostly documentary, she enjoys exploring other techniques.
