MCCC Gallery Hosts Mercer County Artists 2011;
Prizes to be Announced at Opening Reception March 9


West 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 West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Juror 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.

Among 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.

According 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.
