West Windsor, N.J. – Eight artists will define magic on their own terms in the new exhibit “Magic,” coming to the Gallery at Mercer County Community College (MCCC). The show will be on display from Monday, Nov. 7 through Thursday, Dec. 1. The community is invited to an opening reception on Thursday, Nov. 10 from 5 to 7 p.m. that features a gallery talk and tour with the show’s curator, Tiffany Calvert, at 6 p.m.

The MCCC Gallery is located on the second floor of the Communications Building on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.  Directions and a campus map can be found here.

Participating artists include Hayley Barker, Matthew F. Fisher, Karla Knight, Chris Martin, Kristine Moran, Sarah Peters, Henry Samelson, and Laurel Sparks.
Notes Kerri O’Neil, interim gallery curator, “When we think of the word ‘magic,’ oftentimes we think about extraordinary powers that influence a supernatural source.  In the case of this exhibit, we look at the process of art making as an act of magic itself. The artists in this show address these otherworldly concerns both in material and subject by incorporating symbols and abstract codes, recording spiritual and ecstatic experiences, or simply with rough and bumpy surfaces that suggest signs of another dimension.”

Gallery hours are Mondays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with Wednesday hours extended until 7 p.m. For more information about this and other exhibits at the MCCC Gallery, visit www.mccc.edu/gallery.
