The Winter Workshops at the Gourgaud Gallery -September Exhibit

The Winter Workshops Series at the Gourgaud Gallery      - September 1 from 1-3 PM-September 28.

In September the Gourgaud Gallery, located at Cranbury Town Hall, 23-A N. Main Street in Cranbury, N.J. will be hosting an exhibit for free, namely, "Winter Workshop Series Exhibit" by Workshop Artists.


The Winter Workshops at the Gourgaud Gallery sponsored by the Cranbury Arts Council has given local artists the opportunity to remain painting 12 months of the year. CAC has hosted Art in the Park sessions all around the area for the spring/summer months for plein air painting. Colleen Cahill started this program to supplement it so that even in the doldrums of winter we are able to assemble to learn, to paint and to create together. The focus this year has been on watercolor, specialized topics such as putting people in a landscape and creative collage and mixed media.


The Cranbury Arts Council employs working artists to facilitate these workshops and each year we get a great turnout to these sessions. We celebrate the work done at the workshops (collage, pastels, and watercolors being among the classes) with a gallery showing. Work can be submitted late August from workshop participants that are reviewed and possibly juried, based on the response. We also try to hang a piece from each of our artists and instructors.


The Winter Workshop gallery show will have a reception on Sunday, September 1 from 1-3 PM and we hope many can come to see these artistic efforts at the Gourgaud Gallery where ART happens.

The artwork is for sale with 20% of each sale going to support the Cranbury Arts Council and its programs. Cash or a check made out to the Cranbury Arts Council is accepted as payment.


The Gallery is located in Town Hall, 23-A North Main Street in Cranbury, NJ and is free and open to the public Mon-Fri from 9 AM-4 PM, September 1-29 (closed on Labor Day) and the third and last Sunday of the month. You can meet the exhibiting Artists at the reception on September 1 from 1-3 PM. Refreshments are served at the Artist Reception.
The Gourgaud Gallery will also offer matted paintings for sale outside of the gallery, as part of Cranbury Day on September 7.
