BEDMINSTER, N.J. - June 29, 2021 - PRLog -- The Center for Contemporary Art ("The Center") is pleased to announce its annual Members' Non-Juried Exhibition & Sale, a yearly opportunity for members to showcase their artwork in any and all media. The variety and range of entries is a testament to the diversity and creativity of The Center's community of artists.

The judge for this year's exhibition was Susanna Baker, Executive Director and Gallery Director for Studio Montclair, Inc. Baker is a NJ-based artist who combines printmaking, painting, sewing, and 3D effects to create unique artworks.

Baker has exhibited widely in both group and solo shows, throughout NJ, NYC, Providence RI, and San Francisco CA. She has also curated a number of shows in the NJ area. She received her BFA from Rhode Island School of Design.

"Best of Show, the "Sally Bush Memorial Award", was presented to Bob Ricciotti (Randolph) for his oil crayon and pencil piece, M19; the Ceramics Award of Excellence went to Naomi Nierenberg (Somerset) for her ceramic work, Spatial Interaction; Awards of Excellence were given to Carolyn Evans (Bedminster) and Andrew Lippman (Bedminster); Honorable Mentions were received by Doris Aufschlager (Bernardsville), Bette Blank (Madison), Zig Mantell (Martinsville), Terry Mayfield (Bridgewater) and MaryAnn L.
