Closing Reception Scheduled for November 19 – Posted 10/28/15
The Morris Museum once again this fall will be hosting the Portfolio Exhibit of design and fine art pieces created by students at County College of Morris (CCM).
The exhibition, consisting of works produced by students taking Portfolio classes through CCMâ€™s Department of Visual Arts, runs from November 3 through November 19. A closing reception, free and open to the public, is scheduled for Thursday, November 19, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The museum is located at 6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown.
This is the third year in a row that the museum has offered to house the Portfolio Exhibit to provide students with a larger audience to view their work.
â€śPortfolio courses at CCM help students to critique, improve and select their best work; create effective presentations; write documents for marketing their creative work to galleries, museums and prospective clients; and develop portfolios to gain entrance to four-year colleges and universities,â€ť notes Todd L. W. Doney, professor of visual arts. â€śHaving their work on exhibit at the Morris Museum also is a wonderful opportunity for our students to showcase their work.â€ť
The exhibition represents the summation of all of a studentâ€™s work from his or her creative studies at CCM. Students participating in the exhibition are from the collegeâ€™s Fine Art and Design Programs.
