Mercer County Division of Culture and Heritage partners with the Mercer County Office on Aging each year to produce the Mercer County Senior Art Show. First Place winners from the County shows advance to the New Jersey Senior Citizen Art Show each fall.

Any Mercer County resident age 60 or older may submit artwork to the Mercer County Senior Art Show. All submissions must be the original work of the applicant, created within the last three years, and not previously entered in a Mercer County Senior Art Show or the State Senior Art Show. Applicants may submit one piece of art in any of the following categories: acrylic, craft, digital imagery, drawing, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, print, sculpture, and watercolor. For full information, please request a prospectus.

A professional Juror selects the winner in this show. Up to 22 artists (one "professional" winner and one "non-pro" winner in each of the 11 categories) may move on to the State Show. The Mercer County and State Shows are currently hosted at Meadow Lakes in East Windsor. There is no entry fee.

For more information about our upcoming show please visit our Mercer County Cultural & Heritage facebook page or to have a prospectus mailed to you, call our art show coordinator at (609) 989-6899.
