The Cranbury Arts Council is pleased to announce that this year's Excellence in the Arts Award recipient is Elaina Phillips! Exposed to the arts at a very early age, Elaina has developed a strong foundation in art and design. At Princeton High School, Elaina had the opportunity to explore visual art classes, digital art, fiber art, color theory, and even discovered her love for plein air painting as well. Elaina served as the President of the student-run Numina Gallery at PHS and exhibited her artwork at the Monroe Township Cultural Arts Commission and the Arts Council of Princeton. Elaina’s beautiful watercolor of Princeton High School hangs in the main office of the school.


Elaina is a recipient of the Scholastic Art and Writing Award in Poetry and Photography and in 2019 she was awarded an Assembly Resolution recognizing her accomplishments in Art from Assemblyman Roy Freiman.


We are currently working with Elaina to bring her artwork to the Gourgaud Gallery for all to see - we are so excited we have been given the go ahead to open the Gallery soon! Please check our website and Facebook page for updates.


For now, you can see more of Elaina’s outstanding work on her website We wish Elaina all the best as she heads to Rutgers University’s Mason Gross School of the Arts this fall!
