Mercer Senior Art Show 2022 accepting entries

The Mercer County Division of Culture & Heritage and the Office on Aging are gearing up for the annual Mercer County Senior Art Show, which will take place July 22 through August 5 at the Conference Center at Mercer on the West Windsor Campus of Mercer County Community College.

The exhibit features works of art created within the past three years, and not previously entered in a Mercer County Senior Art Show or the State Senior Art Show, and is open to all Mercer County residents age 60 or older.

“This really is a special event each year, as Mercer County is fortunate to have so many adults who tap into their creativity to construct new works of art,” said Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes. “I’m looking forward to seeing the work of these talented artists on display this summer.”
