The Mercer County Board of Chosen Freeholders recently honored several Mercer County Residents who had their artwork displayed at the 45th annual New Jersey Senior Citizens Art Show held recently at Meadow Lakes Senior Living Community in East Windsor. The art contest showcases the work of artists 60 years and older and demonstrates the enduring quality of the creative spirit. The artists’ works qualified for the show by receiving First Place Honors in their respective category at the Mercer County Senior Art Show held earlier this year.
