the junction where the arts and community meet

On Sunday, January 15, 2017 over 250 guests attended the opening reception of the Faculty Student Show. Featuring work by the esteemed teaching artists of the West Windsor Arts Council and their students, this annual exhibition is a wonderful culmination of their hard work. We couldn’t be more proud.

Everyday students of all ages come to expand their knowledge and experiment with art and creativity. Whether they are adults or children, they take classes in order to try something new or hone their skills by learning from some of the best teaching artists in the region. Classes are offered in many artistic mediums including painting, drawing, and sculpting as well as printmaking, fashion design, encaustics, and the literary arts. But why should the learning stop there? The annual Faculty Student Show aims to provide the experience of submitting and preparing their work for a professional exhibition as well.

Running from January 9 through February 24, 2017, the show features over 40 pieces of art and represents the hard work and talent of the WWAC community. The juror for this exhibition was John O’Neill of Jerry’s Artarama in Lawrenceville.

New and returning faculty highlighted in the exhibition include: Zakia Ahmed who teaches studio oil painting, Katelynn Kilcommons who will be teaching a variety of arts classes for young children; Sejal Krishnan who teaches painting, drawing, and fashion; Judy Langille who teaches surface design on fabric; Lori Langsner who teaches beginner oil painting; Eleni Litt who will be teaching mixed media art for adults; Susan Mitrano who teaches drawing, painting, and sculpture for youth; Paul Mordetsky who teaches drawing for adults; Pratibha Raju who teaches drawing foundations for youth; Alan and Libbie Soffer who teach encaustic and mixed media; Katie Truk who teaches drawing, painting, and sculpture for youth and adults; and Nancy Zamboni who teaches printmaking for adults.
