MCCC Gallery Hosts Student Art Exhibit

“BOOK CLUB”: This painting by Natalie Kinnemon of Pennington is among approximately 60 works on display at the Gallery at Mercer County Community College’s 2019 “Visual Arts Student Exhibition.” The show runs through April 25.

The work of visual arts students at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) is now on display as the Gallery at Mercer presents its annual “Visual Arts Student Exhibition.” The exhibit, featuring the best works of MCCC students, runs through Thursday, April 25. It is free and is open to the public.

MCCC Gallery Director and Curator Alice Thompson notes that the student exhibition is an important element of the continued growth of students studying visual arts. “It’s a departure from the relative safety of the classroom to present one’s creative exploration to the public. The ongoing encouragement and support of the MCCC visual arts faculty continues to guide our students along the path to becoming visual arts professionals,” she said.

The exhibition includes works by students from a range of Mercer’s visual arts programs including fine arts, advertising and graphic design, digital arts, photography, and sculpture.

The Gallery is located on the second floor of the college’s Communications Building on the West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. Hours are Mondays through Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with Wednesday hours extended until 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.mccc.edu/gallery.
