County College of Morris student art exhibit to be featured


The Department of Art and Design at the County College of Morris presents the works of more than 50 visual arts, photography and design students in its Portfolio Class exhibitions in the college’s art gallery from April 7 and until May 12.

“The CCM Art Gallery is always proud to showcase the portfolio work of our art and design students,” said Brian Sahotsky, Gallery Director. “Portfolio courses provide students with a valuable opportunity to conceive, compose, organize, install and exhibit their creative work as artists and designers.”

The first exhibition, which will begin on April 7 and run until April 21, will feature works by students majoring in visual arts and animation. More than 35 pieces will be exhibited. According to Todd LW Doney, professor at the CCM, “The visual arts exhibit presents the elements taught in the Portfolio course that teach students how to critique, improve and select their best work; create effective presentations; write materials to market their creative work to galleries, museums and potential clients; and developing portfolios to enter four-year colleges and universities. A closing reception, free and open to the public, will take place at the gallery on Thursday, April 21, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The following week, CCM photography and design students will showcase their end-of-year portfolio projects. This exhibition starts on April 28 and ends on May 12. An opening reception is held on Thursday, April 28 and a closing celebration on Thursday, May 12 from 6 to 8 p.m. Both are free and open to the public.

Kelly Whalen, chair of the Department of Art and Design, noted that visitors to the gallery will have the opportunity to view a wide range of works. “They will have the opportunity to see 3D models, clothing, renderings, drawings and other methods of presentation, as well as the work produced by the photography students.” Professor Nicole Schwartz adds, “Photography students create a cohesive, semester-long project consisting of 10-15 images and all works in the exhibits are unique to each student.
