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. Doneyâ€™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.
â€śIâ€™m honored to be able to exhibit artwork from CCM students,â€ť says Bucco. â€śThey provide conversation pieces for visitors and are interesting and beautiful scenes of the surrounding Morris County area.â€ť
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.
â€śWeâ€™re delighted that Assemblyman Bucco has chosen to continue this partnership to provide CCM students with a location to display their work,â€ť says Doney. â€śBy painting and drawing local scenes, it also provides them with a nice opportunity to learn more about the county while broadening their artistic skills.â€ť
Also on display in the assemblymanâ€™s office are a pastel painting by Doney and photos taken by CCM Professor Keith Smith.
