The work of nearly 200 individuals will be on display starting tomorrow at the BSB Gallery. The exhibit, Trenton Art Puzzle, is a bold statement of the quality and quantity of art that is being created in Capital City.
The exhibit will be on display from Oct. 5 to Oct. 26 at the BSB Gallery, located at 143 East State, Trenton. The gallery is open Thursdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Trenton Art Puzzle was developed to engage Old Trenton Neighborhood residents in an art-making activity while also developing their awareness for the iconic shape of the city of Trenton. In several paint sessions offered throughout the neighborhood to people of all ages and backgrounds, the artists provided blank puzzle pieces cut out in the shape of the city. All participants were encouraged to paint their experiences, their hopes for their community, representations of neighborhood landmarks, symbols of their cultural identity, or simply beautiful abstract expressions.
“This unique exhibit is a homegrown reflection of the buzz generated by the continuous exhibitions that highlight the extraordinary work being created in Trenton,” Tom Gilmour, executive director of the Trenton Downtown Association, said in a statement. “The Trenton Downtown Association opened the BSB Gallery to support the Creek to Canal Creative District and provide a platform to showcase all the amazing Trenton artists.”
