The show presents a Best of Show Award in each of the following age categories: 4-5, 6-7, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 14-15, 16-17 and Sculpture. The show gives the public a chance to see and support the up-and-coming talents of New Jersey youth.
Virginia Carroll —
Virginia Carroll has been painting since her childhood. She received her BA in Fine Art Education and taught art for the Metuchen Public Schools for 40 years. Since retiring from teaching in 2010 she has devoted much of her time to her own painting.
Upon joining The Contemporary Art Group and The Watchung Art Center, she has shown at various local venues as a member of those groups. As the 2012 winner of The Watchung Art Center Annual Members Show, this is her first solo exhibition.
The show is a collection of paintings that evoke the calm, rich tones and mood of the winter season. Visitors will see bold branches, peaceful fields, comforting times at home and year end celebrations. As Shakespeare has written; “…winter tames man, woman and beast.”
