The first-ever BRHS alumni art show

Old City Hall-Bordentown

Ok, we have heard from artists who just missed the deadline and want to participate. We purposely planned for a long time between entries and show in hopes that folks who live out of state will be able to attend.

We are extending the deadline for entries to July 31, 2011. But that’s “it,” so please get them in ASAP!

Alumni artists from Bordentown Regional High School are planning Feels Like Home, the first-ever juried alumni art show. We have a commitment from Farnsworth Art Gallery to host us October 1-15, 2011, during Cranberry Festival. We are hoping to raise some funds for a student scholarship fund for BRHS artists.

Check back often for updates, applications, and posters. Also please let us know if you want to help with the event or to spread the word. Feel free to leave us a note here or write us at, and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

Chris, Louise, Kate, and Andy
