The Arts Council of Princeton will present “McVicker at 90: A Retrospective,” an exhibition of works by award-winning Princeton, N.J., artist Charles McVicker, in the arts council’s Taplin Gallery, from Feb. 22 to March 14.
The public is invited to an opening reception from 3 to 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22. The Arts Council of Princeton is located in the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon St., Princeton, N.J.
McVicker believes that through art, he is both a reporter and an interpreter. “My paintings are autobiographical in the sense that they are the result of experiences and travels. I paint what I think is important or beautiful,” he said. McVicker works in oil, acrylic and watercolor.
He is a member of the American Watercolor Society, the Watercolor USA Honor Society, the National Watercolor Society, the National Society of Painters in Acrylic and Casein, the Princeton Artists Alliance, and was president of the Garden State Watercolor Society. He has won awards in all of these organizations’ juried exhibitions.
McVicker has won the Robert Sanstrom Gold Medal in the National Society of Painters in Acrylic and Casein Annual Exhibit and was the Honored Artist at the Phillips Mill annual exhibition. His paintings are included in the collections of Princeton University, the Capitol in Washington, D.C., and the Zimmerli Museum at Rutgers University.
