Comment on : West Windsor Arts Council Announces Call for Artists | Submission Deadline: April 1, 2012


West Windsor Arts Council Announces Call for Artists | Submission Deadline: April 1, 2012

The West Windsor Arts Council invites artists between the ages of 13 and 33 to submit works that explore, connect or break down the barrier between sight and sound.  The theme for the exhibit encourages works of artists who have attempted to explore sound through visual imagery. Submission deadline is April 1, 2012. 

Details of the WW 33 submission guidelines and prospectus are available at www.westwindsorartscenter.org/Call-to-Visual-Artists.html 

Selected works will be showcased at the West Windsor Arts Council's Gallery in their second annual WW 33 Exhibition, May 2 to June 8.  Opening reception for WW 33 is planned for Sunday, May 6, 4:00-6:00pm at the West Windsor Arts Center, 952 Alexander Road, Princeton Junction, NJ 08550.  

WW 33 is open to artists between the ages of 13 and 33 who either reside or attend school in Mercer County (Middlesex residents are eligible if they attend a West Windsor Plainsboro School).  Applicants may submit up to three images for jury review. All works entered must be original.  Current West Windsor Arts Council members may submit their artwork for free; non-WWAC member fees are $5 per image submitted.  For more information about the show, write wwacexhibits@gmail.com or call 609.716.1931.

Jurors for this show are visual artist, Donna Payton, and documentary style photographer, Kali McMillan.

Donna Payton, a resident of Millstone, transforms discarded and unnoticed items into works that range from the sublimely ridiculous to the neo-surreal. She converts culture's castoffs into ironic cultural icons in the form of assembled sculptures that are then reinvented in the two-dimensional worlds of paintings, prints and drawings. She has exhibited widely in the United States. Her works are in many public and private collections, including Citibank of Florida, Jersey City Museum, Zimmerli Art Museum, the New Jersey State Museum, and the International Museum of Collage in Mexico. Donna has taught art at Ocean County College, Brookdale Community College and currently teaches at the West Windsor Arts Center and the Arts Council of Princeton.

Kali McMillan, a resident of West Windsor and an upcoming documentary style photographer, creates visual stories from her extensive travels.  She uses her camera to capture and share the social, economic and cultural diversity of people and places around the world.  Her work has been exhibited in New York City, New Jersey, Texas and Canada and was part of an exhibit at Milk Galleries in New York City featuring the industry's most progressive and innovative emerging photographers. Kali has taught photography at West Windsor Arts Center and Martin House in Trenton NJ. More on Kali McMillan can be found at www.kalimcmillanphotography.com
