Featuring more than 120 sculptures by artist and GFS founder Seward Johnson, The Retrospective will include work in every indoor gallery, and many new works out in the park, including the much-anticipated monumental land sculpture titled, "The Awakening,” sited in The Meadow. Joining his internationally admired large-scale works such as "Forever Marilyn" will be dozens of key works comprising the "Icons Revisited," "Beyond The Frame," and "Celebrating The Familiar" series. These notable sculptures will be joined by Mr. Johnson's lesser known but perhaps most intimate work—a collection of trays upon which he has painted landscapes and moments of great personal meaning to him. Seward Johnson: The Retrospective represents nearly 50 years of work, and is a culmination of the prodigious whimsy and humanity of this extraordinary man. Visit for installation news, updates, special events, and more.

The Art Gallery at TCNJ is very pleased to present the 2014 Alumni Art Exhibition to showcase the exemplary, innovative artwork of the College’s graduates. The exhibition includes art in all media—drawings, prints, paintings, sculptures, videos, mixed media works, and an interactive installation. The artists in the show represent classes from the 1970s all the way up to graduates in 2014. The exhibition juror has been Sara Reisman, director of New York City’s Percent for Art program, which commissions permanent artworks for new and renovated city-owned spaces, both indoors and outdoors. Reisman’s extensive knowledge of contemporary art and experience as an independent curator enabled a thoughtful and careful review of the many excellent submissions for the exhibition.
