West Windsor, N.J. – Calling local artists! Artists aged 18 or older who live, work, or attend school in Mercer County are invited to submit their art for consideration for this year’s “Mercer County Artists 2014” exhibition at The Gallery at Mercer County Community College (MCCC). Jurying takes place on Saturday, March 1, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Gallery.
The exhibition is co-sponsored and supported by the county’s Cultural and Heritage Commission through a grant from the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission, with funding from the New Jersey State Council of the Arts/Department of State, a partner of the National Endowment for the Arts.
The MCCC Gallery is located on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Directions and a campus map can be found here.
Artists may enter up to two original works completed since March 2012 in any media except photography. (The county hosts a separate photography exhibit). They are asked to drop off their work between 9:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Works that are not accepted for the show should be picked up between 3:30 to 5 p.m.
More than $1,000 in prizes will be awarded, including Purchase Awards from the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission. Artwork selected for Purchase Awards will become part of the county's permanent collection.
