Many remember Algava, who died of cancer in 2019, for her love of life as much as for her artwork. She was often found sketching in the Small World Coffee cafe below her Witherspoon Street studio, and she was one of the most welcoming, encouraging and respected artists and teachers in the region. She found joy and beauty everywhere.
“Students would enter her popular classes at the West Windsor Arts Council and say, ‘I can’t draw’ and leave six weeks later exclaiming, ‘I’m an artist!’” says Algava’s daughter Carin, who is organizing the event along with her sister Alisa, artists Heather Barros, Mic Diño Boekelmann, and with support from the West Windsor Arts Council.
The event will kick off with brief instruction and art prompts from Heather Barros. “No artistic experience necessary,” Barros stresses. “We want people to come and celebrate Priscilla and let their creativity run free, just as she would have encouraged them to do.”
Some works presented above are available for sale with proceeds benefiting the Priscilla Snow Algava Scholarship Fund at West Windsor Arts Council.
“We are deeply honored to have worked with Priscilla and benefited from her generous spirit for so many years,” says Aylin Green, executive director, West Windsor Arts Council. “Through this scholarship, we are able to perpetuate her legacy while providing an opportunity for individuals to take art classes at West Windsor Arts Center who might not have been able to otherwise, due to financial obstacles.”
