Fine art created by some of Lawrenceville's most exceptional student artists will be on display in the Gruss Center for Visual Arts from January 11-31. All are invited to a special reception for the show on Thursday, January 24 in the Gruss at 6:30 p.m.

The Gruss is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Visitors are also welcome on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. The Center is open to the public, free of charge.

The show is truly a feast for the eyes, featuring dozens of paintings, drawings, photography, raku pottery, and mixed media pieces.
