In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, Red Bank Catholic High School senior Madeleine Carpenter has curated an Ecuadorian art exhibit to be featured at Frameworks Gallery, 135 Monmouth St., in Red Bank. The opening reception takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday.
The idea of an exhibit, running through Oct. 27, came to the Monmouth Beach teenager after a visit to Ecuador last summer. She grew up surrounded by her Ecuadorian grandmother’s art collection, often wondering what many of the pieces signified.
In Ecuador, she was able to research and meet with several artists, and discovered what an incredible collection of pieces her grandmother, Berthalina Vincent Moore, brought to New Jersey over the last 50 years.
