Students Create Watercolor and Pastel Paintings of Morris County for Randolph Office – Posted 12/11/15
Assemblyman Anthony Bucco will be hosting a reception in his Randolph office to mark the latest exhibition of artwork created by County College of Morris (CCM) visual art students.
The reception takes place Wednesday, December 16, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at 1040 Route 10 West, Suite 104, in Randolph.
The exhibition, which will be on display through March, features Morris County scenes created by students in Professor Todd L. W. Doney’s Watercolor and Drawing II classes. This is the third year Bucco has held an exhibition to provide CCM students with a venue for displaying their work.
“I’m honored to be able to exhibit artwork from CCM students,” says Bucco. “They provide conversation pieces for visitors and are interesting and beautiful scenes of the surrounding Morris County area.”
The students who created the pieces on exhibition are Lyndsey Abe, of Rockaway; Ingrid Correa and Emily LaRosa, of Morris Plains; Linda Dill, of Hackettstown; Kristie Garrell of Morristown; Talia Segelman, Jake Mandrake and Andrea Quiroz, of Randolph; and Jessica Scillia, of Succasunna.
“We’re delighted that Assemblyman Bucco has chosen to continue this partnership to provide CCM students with a location to display their work,” says Doney. “By painting and drawing local scenes, it also provides them with a nice opportunity to learn more about the county while broadening their artistic skills.”
Also on display in the assemblyman’s office are a pastel painting by Doney and photos taken by CCM Professor Keith Smith.
