There’s a Bergen gem you may not have un-earthed yet—the Belskie Museum of Art and Science in Closter. The museum was founded by the Closter Lions Club to preserve, house and exhibit the works of Abram Belski, a Scottish sculptor and medical illustrator who lived in Closter for 57 years. The museum exhibits 10 shows each year and admission is free. In June, see the work of seven artists (above is Peggy Dressel’s “Time Out”) who are members of Blackwell Street Center for the Arts in Boonton (several of whom are from Bergen County). The exhibit will include mixed media, watercolor, oil, collage, pastels and photography. An opening reception will be held Sunday, June 4, and hours are 1 to 5 p.m. on weekends.
