Calling All Artists – Art Show, May 14, 2009

Is there such a thing as an “old” artist? Is one ever too old to create? Picasso continued working into his 90s – Monet kept at it even after he was nearly blind.

The Hillsborough Township Cultural and Arts Commission, in conjunction with its upcoming 4th Annual Fine Art Exhibit, is seeking area artists interested in showcasing their work. This juried art show, which will take place at the municipal complex on May 14, 2009, will also feature the best work of the young artists at Hillsborough High School, as well as other area schools. All artists working in two dimensions – painting, drawing, photography, etc., are invited to have their work displayed and judged.

Prizes totaling $1000.00 will be awarded in several different categories, and one young artist will receive a $1000.00 commission to create an artwork depicting a prominent figure or feature of our town for display in Hillsborough's new permanent art collection. The first piece in the collection, an oil painting of Assemblyman Peter Biondi, has already been created by our own internationally recognized portraitist Kevin Murphy, and will be unveiled the night of the exhibit.

Artwork will be judged by world class professional artists working in a number of disciplines. Judges will be available to interact with entrants on the evening of the exhibit.

Area artists of all ages are invited to participate alongside Somerset County’s most talented teens.
