Terner House Gallery


The Township of Ocean Cultural Committee is a committee of the Human Services Council. The Committee is charged with the mission of promoting cultural events and activities which promote the arts for the benefit of the community. Of particular importance is the promotion of the arts as a means of enhancing the developmental assets that are associated with a Healthy Community - Healthy Youth initiative in Ocean.

The committee provides opportunities for visual and performing artists to share their talents with the community. The Cultural Committee works in partnership with community groups and the Human Services Department to insure a representative selection of events.

The first project of the Cultural Committee was the establishment of the Terner House Gallery, which is located in the mansion adjacent and connected to the Ocean Township Library. The rooms, used as reading rooms for the library, provide an inviting environment for the display of art work. In addition, the donation of an artisits grand piano makes the gallery a venue for small instrumental and vocal recitals, as well as other musical programs.
