"MCCC Visual Arts Student Show 2005" exhibits the work
of talented Mercer County Community College art students of all
ages at the college’s Gallery
from April 18 through May 13.
According to Gallery Curator Tricia Fagan, this year's show includes
works of fine and graphic arts in media that run the gamut from
contemporary paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor and ink to a
range of classic and cutting-edge photographic techniques. Ceramics,
etchings, wood-cuts, experimental film shorts, classic drawings,
computer designs, and unusual sculptural works are also included.
The postcard for this year’s exhibition was designed by Diana
Reale, a student in professor Tina La Placa’s Advertising
Design III class. Poster designs advertising the show were created
by Ad Design students Stephanie Ang, Ronak Mistry, Jessica Smith,
Mike Visconti, and Samantha White.
