Call for Art: “Old Barracks Gallery Show”

“ART AT THE OLD BARRACKS”: Submissions are due by May 1 for this year’s “Old Barracks Gallery Show: Trenton Makes,” which will showcase the work of Trenton-area artists in the historic 18th-century building.

The Old Barracks Museum is celebrating Trenton area artists and Trenton art in a month-long gallery show hosted in its historic 18th-century building. The “Old Barracks Gallery Show: Trenton Makes” will showcase artworks that best exemplify Trenton art and artists. The show will hang during upcoming events to allow the public to experience these works throughout the month.

Submissions are due by May 1. The opening reception will take place on Friday, June 7 from 6 to 9 p.m. for the public and artists. Following the reception, the gallery will be open to the public from June 7 to July 6.

Originally built in 1758 to house British soldiers during the French and Indian War, the Old Barracks bore witness to the Battles of Trenton and was later used as a Revolutionary War army hospital. The Old Barracks Association purchased the site in the early 20th century, turning it into a museum which welcomes visitors from across the globe, sharing the building’s history through interpretive programs, tours, and exhibits.
