Windsor, N.J. - The talents of 95 Mercer County artists will
be on display at the Gallery at Mercer County Community College
in the upcoming exhibit, "Mercer County Artists 2011,"
which runs from March 8 to April 7. The community is invited
to the Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony, to be held Wednesday,
March 9 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The MCCC Gallery is located on
the second floor of the Communication Building on Mercer's
Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Janet Hunt, owner and director of Coryell Gallery, which is
located in Lambertville, has selected 120 works of art for
the show from a field of 240 entries. Nearly one-quarter of
the artists are newcomers. In addition to oil and watercolor
paintings, close to a third of the pieces are three-dimensional
mixed media and sculpture in materials ranging from clay and
wood to bronze and concrete.
the prizes to be announced at the Opening Reception are Best
in Show, two Juror's Choice Awards, and six Honorable Mentions.
The awards ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. with representatives
from the college, the county and the West Windsor Arts Council
on hand to make presentations.
to MCCC Gallery Director/Curator Tricia Fagan, Janet Hunt
has been a key member of the arts community of central New
Jersey for decades. Descended from a long line of artists,
she has been part of the organizing committee for the prestigious
Phillips' Mill annual art show since the early 1970s. "She
carries on a remarkable family legacy. She really enjoyed
all the talent here in Mercer County," Fagan said.
