About Exhibitions at WWAC

The West Windsor Arts Center (WWAC) establishes a calendar of exhibits that draws on emerging and established local and regional artists and beyond that reflects the diverse ethnic makeup of our community. The WWAC Exhibition Committee selects themes based on media, community interest, tie-ins to cultural events and educational value.

The six exhibits we present each year focus on high artistic quality art that showcases diverse multicultural themes and genres. For each exhibit the committee selects a juror from notable regional art educators, professional artists and museum/gallery directors, who choose works consistent with their standards of excellence and our artistic selection criteria.

Criteria for selecting artwork to exhibit at WWAC:

 

  • Competent use of media and artistic technical skill
  • Artistic sensitivity and emotional impact
  • Creative and innovative work to educate the public
  • Wall appeal to attract the public
  • Relevance to show theme (if applicable)
