Ewing Senior Artists

Artist reception on Thursday, December 12th from 6:30-8pm.

December’s Featured Artist program highlights some of the talented Senior artists living here in Ewing, NJ. Eight artists’ work can be seen at the Ewing Municipal Building during the month of December. The group varies in age from 66-100 years old (yes, 100 years old) & the work presented is just as diverse. Some of our artists immigrated to this country as early as 1969 and some have been living in Mercer County their whole lives. Our oldest artist, Marjorie Burtis, didn’t start painting until she was 90, while others couldn’t have imagined doing anything else.  Many have multiple talents: photography, sculpture, jewelry making, painting, drawing and mixed media work. Some are internationally known and for some, this is their first showing.

Please join us on Thursday, December 12th from 6:30-8pm to meet: Charles Allen, Theresa Bowman-Downing, Marjorie Burtis, Anne Cheslock, Marcel Juillerat, Tim McGee, Rosemary Mikitish and Joseph Ryczkowski.
