Forty-eight works of art by 47 artists who live, work or study in Mercer County were selected for this year’s annual "Mercer County Artists 2005" exhibition. The exhibit will be on display in The Gallery, Mercer County Community College, from February 28 through April 1, 2005. An Opening Reception will be held on Wednesday, March 9, from 5 to 7:30 p.m.. The winners of this year’s Juror’s Awards, Purchase Prizes, and the third Annual West Windsor Arts Council award will be announced that evening. The reception is free and open to the interested public.

This year’s juror, Donna Gustafson, selected a strong assortment of two- and three-dimensional pieces, representing many different media and approaches to the art-making process. Ms. Gustafson, director of exhibitions at the Hunterdon Museum of Art, and former chief curator for the American Federation of the Arts in New York City, selected the artworks from more than 210 pieces submitted by artists this year.
