BEST IN SHOW: Megan Serfass of West Windsor won Best in Show for her painting, “Goldfinches,” at the “Mercer County Artists 2019” juried exhibit. On view through July 8 at The Gallery at Mercer on the West Windsor campus of Mercer County Community College, the show features the work of 36 artists from throughout the county.
A recent Mercer County Community College alumnus took home the Best in Show award as 36 artists from throughout the county displayed their creations during the opening reception of the Mercer County Artists 2019 show at The Gallery at Mercer, on the West Windsor campus of Mercer County Community College (MCCC).
“There were 182 pieces submitted for the juried show, and the juror had an amazingly difficult time selecting the art for the show,” said Alice Thompson, director of The Gallery at Mercer. “She was here several hours making the selections. Congratulations to all of the artists who are represented on these walls.”
Claiming the prize for Best in Show was Megan Serfass of West Windsor, who graduated from MCCC in 2018 with an A.A.S. degree in illustration, for her oil on wood painting Goldfinches. As one of the younger artists to have their work selected for the very competitive show, Serfass said she could barely believe her ears when her name was called during the reception. more
