At MCCC Gallery Nov. 24-Dec. 17

11/24/09


West Windsor, N.J. -- Visitors are invited to reconnect - or connect for the first time -- with contemporary art at The Gallery at Mercer County Community College. In the second installation of artwork by 16 arists entitled "Reconnect," the artists have re-hung the first exhibition in order to create new formal and conceptual connections between the works. Special programming for this second exhibition includes a Gallery Talk on Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 11 a.m. and a concert by the multi-instrumental improv duo, "Stop Correcting Me," featuring Wilbo Wright and Erica Haltmeier, on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 7:30 p.m. The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public and take place at The Gallery on the second floor of the college's Communications Building on the West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

The internationally and nationally known artists featured in both shows include: Peter Arakawa, Rita Asch, Berendina Buist, Mark Cooley, Anne Dixon, Yevgeniy Fiks, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Brian Goings, John Goodyear, Susan Hockaday, Lucy Hodgson, Eve Ingalls, Margaret Kennard Johnson, Caroline Lathan-Stiefel, Marsha Levin-Rojer, and Frank Magalhaes. Among the works on display are sound installations, interactive video stations, sculpture, photography, prints, and multi-media sculptures, many installed with objects that inspired or directed the development of the artwork.

According to MCCC Gallery Director Tricia Fagan, before hanging the new show, the artists reviewed suggestions from visitors to the first exhibit. Both shows have been curated by the eight-person artist group, Movis, in collaboration with Fagan. Eight additional artists working in contemporary media or themes, including MCCC Professor of Visual Arts Yevgeniy Fiks, have also participated.

The exhibit is made possible in part through the support of the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission, with funding from the Board of Chosen Freeholders and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State.

Gallery hours are Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to 3p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m.; Wednesdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m.; and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
