Princeton Windrows Opens Woodrow Wilson Gallery


Oct. 11 Kick-Off Exhibition Featured Works of Resident Artists

Princeton, NJ: Tapping into residents’ talents and enthusiasm for the arts, Princeton Windrow Independent Lifestyle Community opened its Woodrow Wilson Gallery on Friday, Oct. 11 with an inaugural Drawing on Inspiration exhibition and reception. The event featured selected works in a variety of media by 15 resident artists enrolled in the community’s drawing class, ranging from beginner to professional in experience. Princeton Windrows’ activities director, artist and gallery curator Nancy Toolan instructs the class and coordinated the exhibition. Toolan holds a Masters in Fine Arts from Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland, U.K. and is a former college and university art instructor.

“The exhibition and reception were a tremendous success,” Toolan said. “Many residents had no idea that their neighbors are so talented. The event was also a moving tribute to Mr. Roylance.”

The exhibition was dedicated to the memory of Dale Roylance, retired curator of Graphic Arts at Princeton University Library and a former resident of Princeton Windrows. The Gallery will have three exhibitions a year and display artwork from the drawing class, along with works from other Princeton Windrows resident artists.
