The Gourgaud Gallery at Cranbury Town Hall will showcase its fourth annual “January Open Call for Artists” exhibit from Jan. 6 to 27.
In keeping with the theme "Art to Curl Up With," local artists will fill the gallery walls through January with various mediums including oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, photography, and collage.
Artists were challenged this year to think of their favorite book for inspiration or to reflect on things that they do when it's cold.
Last year's exhibit featured more than 22 artists with 45 pieces of original art on display.
Daniel Thomas, Chairperson for the yearly event and member of the Gourgaud Gallery Committee, said he is pleased to announce that he is expecting the usual great attendance for this annual event.
A reception will be held on Sunday, Jan. 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. in the gallery, during which time many of the artists will be available to share and discuss their work with the visitors and what inspired to paint for this year’s theme.
Artwork is for sale, with 20 percent of each sale going to support the Cranbury Arts Council and its programs. Cash or checks can be made out to the Cranbury Arts Council.
Gallery hours are on Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., as well as on the first, third, and last Sunday of the month from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday hours are by appointment only. Head to www.cranbury.org. for more details.
