The Sustainable Washington Township Creative Team is pleased to announce the Summer 2023 exhibit at our outdoor gallery in Washington Lake Park. We are now accepting submissions from local and regional amateur and professional artists. Submitted artwork will be reviewed and selected for exhibit by a committee of artists and art advocates from the Washington Township community.
TheGallery in the Parkis an outdoor installation located at the Amphitheater in Washington Lake Park and is a central venue in ourPainting the TownProject. The exhibit will open in August 2023, and will remain in place through November, to be viewed by visitors to the largest municipal park in New Jersey. The Park is the site of community festivals, concerts, entertainment and recreation events, and is frequented by thousands of individuals seeking leisure enjoyment outdoors. Washington Lake Park is located at 626 Hurffville-Cross Keys Road, Sewell, NJ.
The theme for the exhibit is “The Human Element.” These words may elicit concepts of relationships between individuals or groups of people, benevolent or perhaps troublesome; the influence of people on processes or places, and/or resulting consequences; or human behavior or personality. We invite artists 18 years of age and older to submit images that depict some interpretation of the theme of the human element. Selected images will be printed on weather-proof panels and hung along a paved walkway in the Amphitheater, visible to participants in Parkevents as well as casual strollers.* You may wish to visit our Facebook pagehereto see photos from a previous exhibit.
