DuCret Annual Spring Student Show and Sale Friday


The duCret School of Art is housed in a distinguished
Plainfield mansion.

duCret's annual student art show and sale takes place this Friday (April 28), with some exciting new wrinkles!

Members of the public who attended Monday evening's Planning Board hearing on the draft Muhlenberg Redevelopment Plan got a sneak peak at some of the student pieces for Friday's event.

Many students make the first commercial sale of their art careers at these student shows, so there is always an air of excitement as the budding artists show their work.

Students work in a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, and mixed media; digital art, ceramics, jewelry and sculpture. Juried winners will be announced and their works highlighted.

Among the new twist this year: a raffle of an original painting from the 'duCret Collection' (raffle proceeds will benefit the Ceramics Department), a live jazz band, cash bar and "tasty bites". Table will be available for seating.

The event runs from 7:00 PM to 9:30 PM in the Auditorium at the rear of the complex. Parking and entry from the rear parking lot. duCret School of Art is at 1030 Central Avenue (across from Cedar Brook School)
