Deptford Twp. – Artists at least "60 years young" are invited to participate in the 49th annual Gloucester County Juried Senior Art Show. Submissions will be accepted Monday, July 6 and Tuesday, July 7 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Rowan College at Gloucester County.

The art show's reception will take place on Tuesday, July 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. The contest allows individuals to submit up to two original pieces of artwork that have been completed in the last three years.
