WEST MILFORD — The Friends of Wallisch Homestead (FOWH) has announced the winners of its third annual Art and Photography Exhibition. The exhibit was held June 9 to 11 at the Stone Barn on the Wallisch Homestead site. More than 150 attendees from the community came to enjoy the 88 pieces of art and photography on display from more than 25 local artists.

The Wallisch board has earmarked a portion of the proceeds from the exhibition to fund the Friends of Wallisch Homestead Scholarship Program. This scholarship is awarded to two deserving West Milford High School seniors each year. Any high school senior interested can fill out an application through their guidance counselor.

The Friends of Wallisch Homestead acknowledge the help of the team at St. Catherine's Art Show who provided the display material and judging for this year's event.
