Atlantic County will showcase the creative abilities of county residents ages 60 and older at its 44th annual Senior Citizens Art Show. The juried show will be exhibited May 22 through June 15, 2023 at the Atlantic County Library System Ventnor Branch.
Professional and non-professional artists will compete in a variety of categories, including acrylic, craft, digital imagery, mixed media, oil, pastel, photography, drawing/print, sculpture and watercolor. A monetary prize of $100 will be presented to each first place winner from the Atlantic County Division of Intergenerational Services. Award ribbons will be presented for first place through honorable mention as determined by the judges. Winning entries will advance to the state competition.
“We’re excited to hold this event again, the first time doing so since the COVID-19 pandemic,” stated County Executive Dennis Levinson. “The talents displayed by the artists are exceptional and well worth seeing. I encourage residents and visitors to take time out to visit the exhibit. You won’t be disappointed.”
