Windows of Hope 2021 is a creative art exhibit being featured in the historic district windows of Lawrenceville Main Street and Gordon Avenue.
This event combines the elements of a traditional exhibit, public art installation and “phantom galleries.” It will feature 52 artists and 70 2D and 3D artwork contributions from all sectors of the community, including Home Front’s ArtSpace, whose artists will display work at The Purple Cow Ice Cream Parlor with artists from the Lawrence Township Senior Center.
Eight Main Street businesses will host the upcoming art exhibit: Lawrenceville Vintage Treasures, The Village Barber Shop, The Gingered Peach, DiMatteo Chiropractic and Pilates, The Purple Cow, 2681 Main Street, Starbuck’s Lawrenceville, and Chambers Walk Café.
Two-dimensional (2D) and (3D) three-dimensional artwork will be displayed in the interior windowpanes of these historic buildings facing outward for all passersby to enjoy.
For select businesses whose interior spaces remain closed, there will be “phantom galleries” with artwork illuminated and displayed on ledges with easels, also visible through the windows.
Windows of Hope will also host an event Flickr page where all submissions will be featured online. Artists can sell and retain 100% of the revenue from the sale of their work. Window exhibition maps where artwork is featured will also be available at each participating business with a QR code to “swipe” for artwork description, pricing, and artist’s contact information.
Prizes will be awarded including the public being able to vote for an interactive People’s Choice Award.
