Amelia Chin received first place and best in show honors in the Watercolor/non-professional category at the 2016 Mercer County Senior Art Show.

The 2017 Mercer County Senior Art Show will take place from July 19 through Aug. 4 at the Meadow Lakes Gallery in East Windsor.

The exhibit, which is sponsored by the Mercer County Division of Culture & Heritage and the Office on Aging, features original artworks created within the past three years, from drawings to paintings to crafts, by Mercer County residents age 60 or older.

“Mercer County has so many older adults who tap into their creativity to create new works of art,” Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes said. “I am looking forward to seeing the work of many talented artists on display this summer.”

All first-place winners will go on to the statewide competition, the New Jersey Senior Art Show, to be held Sept. 21 through Oct. 20 at Meadow Lakes, a Springpoint Senior Living Community on Etra Road, just off Route 571, in East Windsor.
