Mercer County Artists 2007

I have one painting accepted into this year's annual Mercer County Artists juried exhibition. It's a small 8x10 plein air oil painting that I did of New Jersey's only covered bridge - sometimes called the Sergeantsville Covered Bridge, but the proper name is Green Sergeant's Covered Bridge:

Green Sergeant's Covered Bridge
"Covered Bridge, Autumn Leaves"
8x10 oil on board

Opening reception is Wednesday Jan 24, 5:00-7:30 pm. Awards ceremony starts at 6:15. The show run from January 22 through February 16, 2007 and is hosted by The Gallery at Mercer County Community College:
West Windsor Campus
1200 Old Trenton Road
West Windsor, NJ 08550
(see their website for gallery hours)

This is a good show for artists to enter because it's run in conjunction with the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission who gives a purchase award each year, and that painting becomes a part of their permanent collection displayed in their offices in downtown Trenton, NJ. My painting "Wertsville Road" won the purchase award in 2005. You have to live or work in Mercer County, NJ to enter this show.
