“Visual Artists” Group Show at Plainsboro Library

“MARNI’S EYES”: This mosaic by Carol Mastroianni is part of “Visual Artists of Princeton Manor,” on view at the Plainsboro Public Library March 1 through April 1. The exhibition features 26 works by amateur artists who are residents of Princeton Manor in Kendall Park.

A group show by the “Visual Artists of Princeton Manor” will open at the Plainsboro Public Library on March 1. Scheduled to run through April 1, the exhibition will feature 26 diverse works by serious amateur artists, all of whom are residents of Princeton Manor, an active adult community in Kendall Park.

The artists’ group, which numbers 25, used to hold regular shows at the Manor before the pandemic, according to Co-Chair Sadi Misrahi.  During the pandemic it held “art crawls,” during which participating artists displayed their work outside their homes. There have been no group shows outside the Manor, although some members have shown their work individually. “We are very excited to be exhibiting together for the first time outside the community,” said Misrahi.

Exhibiting artists each chose two of their works for inclusion in the library show. Their choices ran the gamut from oil painting to Chinese water colors on rice paper. Co-chair Carol Mastroianni, the only mosaicist in the group, submitted two of her pieces. About 50 percent of the exhibition is devoted to art photography, while the remainder showcases various paint media, said Misrahi.

On Saturday, March 4, visitors will have an opportunity to meet the artists at a special library event.

Plainsboro Public Library is located at 9 Van Doren Street, Plainsboro. For more information, call (609) 275-2897.
