“Young Visions” Exhibit At Ellarslie Museum

“SELAH”: This oil painting by Maxine Sheaffer is part of “Young Visions,” on view at the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie in Cadwalader Park through January 12. The exhibition features the works of ten emerging artists.

The visions of ten emerging artists are now highlighted in the galleries of the Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie in Cadwalader Park through January 12. “Young Visions” highlights the interpretations of these young, creative individuals as they balance the line between traditional, industrial, and contemporary work.

Several of the artists have shown recently in Ellarslie Open 36 as up-and-coming artists to watch. Patrick Seufert was awarded the top prize in oils for Duel Extension and Cassaundra Flor won Best in Show Overall with her large etching Aeolian Cityscape. The large, abstract paintings and sculptures of Vincent Hawley occupy the Malloy Gallery. The hyper-detailed animal portraits of Maxine Sheaffer fill the Holland Gallery.

Participating Artists include Cayla Belser, Dave Dimarchi, Cassandra Flor, Vincent Hawley, Greg Mazur, Patrick Seufert, Maxine Sheaffer, Matthew Timek, Megan Uhaze, and Nicolas Valenza.

“Young Visions highlights the dichotomy between traditional and commercial art represented through the interpretation of emerging artists,” said Jennifer Rubin Garey, guest curator. “Working across a variety of disciplines, these artists engage in visual dialog within their own conceptual parameters. Meanwhile, they challenge the preconceived notions of what it is to be young and an artist.”
