(SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ) -- The Union County Board of County Commissioners invites residents of Union County, age 6o and up, to enter an artwork in the 2023 Union County Senior Citizens Art Exhibit. The exhibit will be held at the Scotch Plains campus of Union College of Union County NJ, at 1776 Raritan Road, Scotch Plains.

“Older adults contribute so much to the rich diversity of creative talent in our community, and the annual Union County Senior Citizens Art Exhibit provides a way for all of us to recognize and celebrate their ability to communicate across a range of artistic mediums,” said Commissioner Board Chairman Sergio Granados. “We are looking forward to this year’s exhibit.”

Both professional and non-professional artists at all levels of experience are invited to submit their work to the Union County Senior Citizens Art Show. No previous experience in art shows is needed, and there is no entry fee. All entries must be an original work completed within the past three years.

The deadline to register is Sunday, April 16.  Registration online is required. Full instructions and registration form are at ucnj.org/senior-art.

Seniors without internet access can have a relative or friend with an email address register on their behalf. If additional assistance is needed, call the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs at 908-558-2552 (relay users dial 711) or email msturm@ucnj.org.
