Gallery Bergen and the Veterans Center at BCC are very pleased to present a week-long series of art and writing workshops for veterans in our gallery on the 3rd floor of West Hall. Should you know of any students, faculty or staff who are vets and who might be interested in participating on any level, please forward this information to them. If you are a vet, you are welcome to attend. The workshops are conducted on a drop-in basis - vets can attend whenever they are able, for however long they can. The workshops will culminate in an exhibition of the work produced which will hang in the gallery through December 19. Gallery Bergen is happy to schedule class visits and docented tours.

Since its inception, the Combat Paper NJ Program has conducted over 100 workshops, presentations, and exhibitions helping scores of veterans use art to creatively explore their combat experiences. In week-long workshops and drop-in sessions on military bases, on college campuses, in community centers, in Veterans Affairs facilities, and military hospitals, veterans transform fibers from their military uniforms into deeply personal works of art. Combat Paper NJ is run by veterans, for veterans.
Combat Paper NJ is a program of the Printmaking Center of New Jersey, a 40 year old, award winning non-profit community arts center.
