Lawrenceville Main Street Hosts “Windows of Hope”
“SISTERS AT HEART”: This painting by Irene Granderson is part of “Windows of Hope,” on view through July 10 in the windows of various businesses on Main Street and Gordon Avenue in Lawrenceville. The exhibit features more than 50 artists and 70 2-D and 3-D artwork contributions from all sectors of the community, including HomeFront’s ArtSpace.
“Windows of Hope 2021,” on view through July 10, is a creative art exhibit featured in the historic district windows of Lawrenceville Main Street and Gordon Avenue. This event combines the elements of a traditional exhibit, public art installation, and “phantom galleries.” It features 52 artists and 70 2-D and 3-D artwork contributions from all sectors of the community, including HomeFront’s ArtSpace, whose artists will display work at The Purple Cow Ice Cream Parlor with artists from the Lawrence Township Senior Center.
Eight Main Street businesses will host the upcoming art exhibit — Lawrenceville Vintage Treasures, The Village Barber Shop, The Gingered Peach, DiMatteo Chiropractic and Pilates, The Purple Cow, 2681 Main Street, Starbuck’s Lawrenceville, and Chambers Walk Café. The artwork is displayed in the interior windowpanes of these historic buildings facing outward for all passersby to enjoy. For select businesses whose interior spaces remain closed, there are “phantom galleries” with artwork illuminated and displayed on ledges with easels, also visible through the windows.
Window exhibition maps where artwork is featured are available at each participating business with a QR code to scan for artwork description, pricing, and artist’s contact information. Artists will retain 100 percent of the revenue from the sale of their work. Prizes will be awarded including the public being able to vote for an interactive People’s Choice Award.
