The Trenton Museum Society will present “New Jersey Photography Forum — A 25-Year Retrospective” from September 15 to November 10 in the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie Mansion. The museum is located in Cadwalader Park at 299 Parkside Avenue, Trenton. Admission is free, with donations welcome.
The exhibit’s nearly 100 works range from film and digital imagery to alternative processes such as cyanotype, glass fusion, and hand coloring, and will represent the 25 years since the New Jersey Photography Forum’s (NJPF’s) 1994 founding.
At the opening reception on Sunday, September 15, 2 to 4 p.m., 37 artists will be on hand to talk about their work with attendees. The closing reception Sunday, November 10, from 1-4 p.m., will feature a talk by NJPF founder and director Nancy Ori, who curated the exhibit.
The NJPF advances the interests of professional and serious photographers living or working in the New Jersey area. Over the past 25 years it has become New Jersey’s largest, most recognized group of fine art exhibiting photographers and produces annually more than a dozen exhibits at various venues around the state.
The Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie Mansion houses a collection of fine art and historical displays that illuminate New Jersey’s historical, industrial, and cultural past and present. The first-floor galleries host revolving exhibitions of contemporary art in all media. The museum, in an Italianate villa built in 1848, also hosts an array of special events, musical programs, and classes. The mansion is the centerpiece of Cadwalader Park, which was designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, whose most famous work is New York City’s Central Park.
