West Windsor, N.J. -- Calling high school art teachers and their students! The Gallery at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) invites high school visual arts educators who teach in Mercer or an adjacent county, along with selected student artists from their school, to participate in “Passing the Palette: Arts Educators and Students.”
All visual arts media will be accepted, including but not limited to paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography and digital media.
Drop-off is during regular Gallery hours from Monday, Nov. 2 to Thursday, Nov. 5. Submission details, including Gallery hours, are available at www.mccc.edu/gallery. Teachers with questions should email firstname.lastname@example.org. The MCCC Gallery is located on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Directions and a campus map can be found at www.mccc.edu.
According to Gallery Director Dylan Wolfe, the exhibit, the first of its kind at the MCCC Gallery, will celebrate the talent and creativity of local art instructors, as well as the next generation of artists who are interpreting the world in new and interesting ways.
The “Passing The Palette” exhibit will be on display from Monday, Nov. 16 to Tuesday, Dec. 8. A community reception will be held Wednesday, Nov. 18, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The show is free and open to the public.
Wolfe expects the show to accomplish a lot. “Teachers don’t always have an opportunity to exhibit their own work, nor do their students. The exhibit will highlight teachers’ valuable contribution to our region’s arts community and the students who are inspired by them.”
Submissions must be delivered to the MCCC Gallery by the teacher. Up to six pieces will be accepted from the instructors and their selected current or former students. (Students who have already graduated are eligible.)
