peopleplacesgalleryshotThe Arts Council of Princeton’s Annual Membership Exhibition is open to all artists who are current members of the Arts Council. Member artists submitted works in a range of media including painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, printmaking, ceramics, and sculpture.

This year’s theme People and Places serves as the beginning of the Arts Council of Princeton’s Community Portrait Project. The ACP is dedicating the year beginning in fall 2010 to “Portraits” as a community wide arts theme. For this show members were invited to help us kick off the Community Portrait theme by entering artwork that pertains in some way to the theme of “Portraits” which can be broadly understood as the many ways we ‘see’ each other: Depictions of identity, people, places, ideas, feelings, and moments are included. We are pleased to have close to one hundred works in this annual membership exhibition and look forward to continuing the Community Portrait theme throughout the year in dance, music, theater, and visual arts that relate to this concept of portraits.
