Markeim will once again be hosting its annual fall exhibit. This year our theme is “Beautiful Autumnal Views – Amazing Mauve, Golden Yellow and Brazen Bronze Blends” is the theme for this year’s exhibition. Artists are encouraged to submit new and challenging perspectives of Autumn in a variety of media, including paintings, photography, textiles and sculpture. This exhibition is open to all artists.
The curator for this exhibition is Rosie Hymerling. Rosie has been an art collector for 45 years and art aficionado for numerous collections. She is a retired teacher living in Haddonfield with her husband Lee. She has been on the Board of Directors of the Markeim Art Center for over 20 years. After graduating from the College of New Jersey, Hymerling taught in both Princeton and Cherry Hill before moving to Haddonfield Public Schools in 1971. She spent the next 35 years teaching kindergarten in the district, and her energy, enthusiasm, and dedication helped establish her as a “legend” according to a Philadelphia Inquirer article written at the time of her retirement. So beloved was she by past and present students and coworkers that her retirement brought about a number of tributes—including a proclamation from Cherry Hill Township Mayor Bernie Platt naming May 17, 2007, “Rosie Hymerling Day.”
Retirement has not slowed the spry Hymerling down. She teaches professional development workshops for Garden State Discovery Museum and also serves on the museum’s Subaru Teacher Center Advisory Board. She is on the Maestro Committee for the Philadelphia Orchestra. She serves on the board and presents professional development seminars for the New Jersey Association of Kindergarten Educators. She has also been heavily involved with fundraising efforts for a number of organizations, including New Visions Shelter in Camden, Caring Hearts Ministry, and Interfaith Caregivers.
