(TRENTON, NJ) -- Trenton City Museum at Ellarslie presents "Young Visions" now through January 12, 2020 with the visions of ten emerging artists highlighted its galleries. Young Visions highlights the interpretation of these young, creative individuals as they balance the line between traditional, industrial, and contemporary work. Jennifer Rubin Garey is the Guest Curator.
Several of the artists have shown recently in Ellarslie Open 36 as up-and-coming artists to watch. Patrick Seufert was awarded the top prize in oils for Duel Extension and Cassaundra Flor won Best in Show Overall with her large, etching Aeolian Cityscape. Vincent Hawley will take over the Malloy Gallery with his large abstract paintings and sculpture. Maxine Sheaffer will fill the Holland Gallery with her hyper-detailed animal portraits. As young artists find their voice and establish their reputations in this challenging field, the Trenton City Museum is pleased to highlight their Young Visions.
Participating Artists include Cayla Belser, Dave Dimarchi, Cassandra Flor, Vincent Hawley, Greg Mazur, Patrick Seufert, Maxine Sheaffer, Matthew Timek, Megan Uhaze, and Nicolas Valenza.
“Young Visions highlights the dichotomy between traditional and commercial art represented through the interpretation of emerging artists. Working across a variety of disciplines, these artists engage in visual dialog within their own conceptual parameters. Meanwhile, they challenge the preconceived notions of what it is to be young and an artist,” explains Jennifer Rubin Garey, Guest Curator.
The Trenton City Museum is located in Ellarslie Mansion in the heart of Cadwalader Park in Trenton, New Jersey. The museum houses a fine collection of art and artifacts related to Trenton’s historical, industrial, and cultural past and present. In addition to changing and permanent exhibitions, we host a range of community events, performances, and art classes.
The galleries on the first floor host exhibitions of contemporary art in all media. Our members and occasional visitors alike enjoy diverse and exciting visual experiences throughout the year. One such exhibition, the annual juried Ellarslie Open, highlights the artistic talent that abounds throughout the New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania region and beyond.
