Student Talent On Display at The Gallery April 18 - May 13


The "MCCC Visual Arts Student Show 2005" exhibits the work of talented Mercer County Community College art students of all ages at the college’s Gallery from April 18 through May 13.

According to Gallery Curator Tricia Fagan, this year's show includes works of fine and graphic arts in media that run the gamut from contemporary paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor and ink to a range of classic and cutting-edge photographic techniques. Ceramics, etchings, wood-cuts, experimental film shorts, classic drawings, computer designs, and unusual sculptural works are also included. The postcard for this year’s exhibition was designed by Diana Reale, a student in professor Tina La Placa’s Advertising Design III class. Poster designs advertising the show were created by Ad Design students Stephanie Ang, Ronak Mistry, Jessica Smith, Mike Visconti, and Samantha White.

Students in Mercer's Fine Arts and Graphic Arts programs study with outstanding faculty members including Mel Leipzig, Michael Welliver, Kyle Stevenson, Eric Kunsman, Amy Kosh, Mark Stockton, Nancy Zamboni, Edgar Endress, Paula Swisher, John Sunkiskis, Gary Ell, Don Lowing, and Lyn Ports Lopez.
