Yeah Team!

The Trenton Thunder baseball team continues to set franchise records. For the 13th consecutive season, the team collected over 400,000 admissions to games. And for the first time ever, the AA affiliate of the New York Yankees have advanced to the Eastern League Championship series.

Kudos to the ownership and management of the Thunder for another outstanding season.

But the good news doesn't stop there.

Yesterday was the opening reception for a new exhibit at Mercer County Community College's Gallery. Entitled "Dangerous Women Two" it was curated by Trish Fagan and pairs works of 70 regional women artists with brief biographies of "dangerous" women activists/artists/adventurers of the past century. Trenton resident Lisa Fuellemann is one of the featured artists. The exhibit runs through October 4.

And that just foreshadows three openings occurring this coming weekend in Trenton.

The next exhibit at Gallery 125 (downtown, 125 S. Warren Street) is "Shoot-The Photography Show" and features works by 30 regional photographers. Opening reception is Friday, Sept. 14, from 5 - 9 pm.

At the same time, "How We See What We See" opens at Artworks, 19 Everett's Alley. Eight regional artists are displaying their work in a show curated by Sculptor Kate Graves. A DJ and refreshments will add to the excitement of the opening.

Saturday night, The Garden State Watercolor Society will debut a show at Ellarslie in Cadwalader Park. The reception runs from 7:00 - 9:00 pm. And while you're there, check out the exhibit about the Maddock/Lamberton/Scammell potteries on the second floor.

It's looking like a winning season all the way around.
