2-28-08

WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- The Gallery at Mercer County Community College will exhibit Mercer County Artists 2008 from March 4 through April 3, 2008. This annual exhibit is a collaboration between the college and The Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission.

An opening reception will be held on March 5 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at The Gallery. Announcement of awards will be at 6:15 p.m. The public is invited to this free reception.

Each year for more than three decades, the Mercer County Artists show has featured some of the region's most talented artists. Works in all media except for photography (which is featured in a separate county show) will be exhibited, by both well-established and emerging artists.

According to Gallery Director Tricia Fagan, this year there were 186 works submitted by 105 artists, and 64 works were selected for the show. Nine works are sculptures, and the rest are two dimensional in every media, representing 48 artists.

This year's juror is Cicely Cottingham from Aljira Gallery and Design in Newark, NJ. At least $1500 in purchase and merit prizes will be awarded. The juror will select a "Best in Show," a "Juror's Choice Awardee" and six honorable mentions. Additional works will be selected by the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission for their Purchase Award. These works become part of the county's permanent art collection.

The Gallery is located in the Communications Building, second floor, on MCCC's West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. For additional information and Gallery hours for this exhibit, e-mail gallery@mccc.edu or call 609-570-3589.

This exhibit is supported, in part, by the Mercer County Cultural & Heritage Commission, through a grant from the County Board of Freeholders and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State.
