The Shane Lalani Center for the Arts
 in Livingston has extended Edd Enders’ exhibit of art in their lobby with a second series of seven paintings.

The nonprofit Shane Center’s mission is to strengthen community through participation in the arts. New Executive Director Sally O’Connor says, “We love displaying the work of local artists in our facility—it fits perfectly with our mission. Edd’s work is bright and uplifting, and really represents the uniqueness of our community.”

Enders has been a prolific full time painter for over two decades. He is a contemporary Western painter who portrays humans’ impact on the landscape with iconic shapes in nonrepresentational bright colors. Working from sketches of rural and urban scenes, Enders is not a plein air painter, but works in the studio with oils on canvas to craft compositions evoking specific moods, seasons and stories of the region. Enders says, “My goal as a painter is that my work continues to evolve and reflect contemporary society.” Widely admired, Enders has collectors ranging from New York to Key West to Chicago to Shanghai and has shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
