Stained Glass artisan Al Langer has created a beautiful tribute to “The Rivah Life” that is part of the historical heritage of Middlesex County. Measuring 19 inches by 25.5 inches, the hanging window piece has multiple panes of colorful wavy glass that recall the water and the life that is lived around it everyday. For anyone who boats, fishes, sails or enjoys Middlesex waters, this piece will bring to mind time spent traveling through the local tranquil shorelines: a tranquility that has been part of our 350 years of recorded life here on the River.
“The River’s Keeper is just stunning,” says Middlesex County Museum director Holly Horton. “Al has done a wonderful job of capturing the essence that has brought people to our area for centuries. It will be a stunning addition to anyone’s home or business.”
Created as a fundraiser piece, this artwork will be raffled off with proceeds benefiting the Museum. Valued at $400, “The River’s Keeper” tickets sell for $3.00 each or 2 for $5.00, or 10 for $20.00 and are on sale at the museum. They can also be ordered through the museum website. The River’s Keeper will be on display in the museum before the drawing.
