West Windsor, N.J. – Visual Arts students at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) are ready to display their rich and varied talents as the Gallery at Mercer presents its annual “Visual Arts Student Exhibition.” This exhibit featuring some of the best works by MCCC students runs from Monday, April 2 to Thursday, May 3. It is presented free and is open to the public.

The community is invited to an Opening Reception on Wednesday, April 4, 5 to 7 p.m. The MCCC Gallery is located on the second floor of the Communications Building on the college’s West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

The exhibition includes works by students from a range of Mercer’s Visual Arts programs including Fine Arts, Advertising and Graphic Design, Digital Arts, Photography and Sculpture.

Gallery hours are Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with Wednesday hours extended until 7 p.m.

Said Gallery Director and Professor of Fine Arts Lucas Kelly, "From an academic point of view, the Visual Arts Student Exhibition is the most noteworthy show of the season. It provides an opportunity for our students to showcase their work – many for the first time – and to document their creativity and initiatives outside the safety of the classroom. A major step in becoming a visual arts professional is developing the confidence to share your work with the public. To celebrate this moment with our students is an honor."

Kelly adds that the most important thing the Gallery does is engage the students meaningfully. "While exhibitions are carefully curated to connect to curriculum, the student show closes the loop on the students’ process of observing and then practicing. Having the faculty and their students immersed in gallery operations maintains a forward thinking, professional, vision of art education," he said.

More information about this and other exhibits at the MCCC Gallery is available at www.mccc.edu/gallery.  Directions to the campus and a campus map can be found at www.mccc.edu.
