Jurying will take place on Saturday, January 13 for this one-day event. Artists must drop their work off between 9:30 am and noon, and must pick up work not selected for the show later the same day.

This year's juror is Burt Wasserman, who taught Fine Art and Art Appreciation at Rowan College for many years. He is the esteemed art critic with Art Matters newspaper, as well as a recognized artist with work in many public and private collections.

More than $1,500 in prizes and purchase awards will be presented, including several Mercer County Cultural & Heritage Commission purchase awards, the Utrecht Art Supplies Best in Show prize, and the annual West Windsor Arts Council award. Show dates are Jan. 22 to Feb. 16, 2007. A reception for the artists will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 25, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. A prospectus is available on-line and in the display area outside of the gallery.
