2024 PHILLIPS’ MILL
YOUTH ART EXHIBITION
January 28 – February 18, 2024
Saturdays and Sundays noon to 4 p.m.
Featuring works of art by local high school students
Saturdays and Sundays noon to 4 p.m.
The Phillips’ Mill Youth Art Exhibition showcases the works of students from area high schools. Now in its 11th year, our youth art program offers young artists the chance to display their work through Phillips’ Mill, and be awarded for their achievements. It is an incredibly exciting opportunity for the student artists. There is no other show like it in the area.
Working in collaboration with school art teachers who curate the artwork submitted, the show features paintings, works on paper, photography, digital art and three-dimensional work.
We are very excited to share that esteemed Trenton-based artist Mel Leipzig was the juror for the 2024 show.

“We display the students’ art the same way we display the prestigious Phillips’ Mill Juried Art Show, so it is very professionally done,” explains Kathy Schroeher, founder and co-chair of the show. “It’s great for the kids to see their work in a beautiful space and professional gallery. It’s different from having it shown at your high school art show. They get the chance to reach a much broader audience, and you can see what the other kids are doing.”
Renowned, Trenton-based artist Mel Leipzig has had more than 40 one-man shows, including shows at museums, art centers and university galleries in New York City, New Jersey, Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Arkansas.
Born Brooklyn in 1935, he taught Painting and Art History at Mercer County Community College until retiring from teaching in 2013. For more than 40 years, Leipzig’s paintings have been concerned with the relation of figures, painted directly from life, to their environment.
Mel Leipzig’s work is in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Academy Museum and the Cooper-Hewitt Museum in New York City; the New Jersey State Museum; and the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers, among numerous others. As the show’s juror, he will lend his expertise, awarding a number of prizes, including Best in Show.

"The humanity of the piece is astounding. I wanted a piece that knocks you out when you see it for Best in Show. The painting is extremely well constructed with terrific composition, color, and subtlety of tones. The cast shadows are painted in black and hold your attention. The black and the white diagonal line help clarify and define the space. The blue/violet shirt is a great contrast to the otherwise warm reds and yellows. Zoya Gupta should be proud of what she did in Dislocation."
