The Center for Contemporary Art exhibits Members' Juried Exhibition at Watchung Arts Center
A benefit of membership at The Center is the opportunity to submit work to members' exhibitions. Other benefits include invitations to exhibitions, reduced rates on art classes and workshops, discounted art supplies, invitations to members-only artist/curator talks and critique groups and more.
Jurors Doris Ettlinger and Michael McFadden selected thirty-eight pieces from 163 entries submitted by 65 artist members of The Center. They awarded six prizes. The "Best of Show" award went to Cynthia Walling (Highland Park, NJ) and Honorable Mentions were awarded to Michael Brailove (Highland Park, NJ), Sally Dougan (Lebanon, NJ), Sandy Furst (Basking Ridge, NJ), DeAnn L. Prosia (Morristown, NJ) and Terri Levine Rosenblum (Franklin Lakes, NJ). The Center's Exhibitions Committee selected Andrew Werth (Princeton Junction, NJ) as the recipient of the Solo Exhibition Award at The Center for Contemporary Art which will be on view April 3 – June 6, 2020.
Jurors Doris Ettlinger and Michael McFadden stated, "On our first round we independently chose work that instantly struck us as visually exciting. Then we worked together to determine the final group. This was difficult because of the high quality of the entries. The pieces we chose had the extra element of storytelling, through mood, emotion or quirkiness."
