“Passing the Palette: Arts Educators, Students” at MCCC
“LAMBERTVILLE STATION:” This wood stain by Lawrence High School teacher Sean Carney is among 30 works by high school students and their teachers featured in “Passing the Palette” at the MCCC Gallery through March 8. The community is invited to an opening reception on Wednesday, January 24 from 5 to 7 p.m.
The Gallery at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) will showcase the talents of high school art teachers and their students in “Passing the Palette: Arts Educators and Students.” This multi-generational exhibit will be on display through Thursday, March 8. The community is invited to an opening reception on Wednesday, January 24 from 5 to 7 p.m.
Among the participating high schools are Lawrence, Hopewell Valley, Trenton Central West, Allentown, and the Peddie School. Thirty works will be on display.
According to Gallery Director Lucas Kelly, the Gallery hosted a similarly-themed show several years ago that was well received. “An exhibit like this is important for students. In the classroom, they learn the foundations of creating art. In this exhibit, they have a chance to see how their teachers are applying those principles in their own work outside the classroom. Students will also experience the satisfaction of having their artwork recognized and displayed in a college gallery space.”
The MCCC Gallery is located on the second floor of the Communications Building on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Gallery hours are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, visit the website at www.mccc.edu/gallery.
