UNION COUNTY – County artists age 60 and older are invited to submit their recent original works for the annual Union County Senior Art Exhibit. It is open to both amateur and professional artists.
Art in 11 different categories is eligible: oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, print, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, craft (one-of-a-kind creations only, no craft kits or molds), computer imagery, and photography. Guidelines require that hanging artwork, crafts and photos must be no more than 36 inches and no less than 11 inches in height and width, including matting, from outer edges of the frame. Standing sculptures or 3-D crafts may not exceed 18 inches in height, width or depth, including the base.
The art exhibit will be on display at the enclosed atrium of the Elizabethtown Gas Company, located at 1085 Morris Avenue in the Township of Union from June 8 to July 16. Awards will be presented for the best works, and first place winners in all categories will go on to compete in September at the New Jersey State Senior Art Show in East Windsor.
To obtain an application, call Senior Art Coordinator Teya David at the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs: 1-908-558-2550, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
