Juried Art Exhibit Celebrates the Open Horizons of the Future
The National Association of Women Artists (NAWA) is presenting its annual juried members exhibition revolving around the concept of â€śOpen Horizonsâ€ť at the County College of Morris (CCM) Art and Design Gallery, February
NAWA selected its theme to highlight the truth that â€śno matter how challenging the times are, the horizon of the future is always open.â€ť Even in abstract concepts, horizons can be found in the divisions of space, a landscape, or a sea or cityscape, notes NAWA.
The gallery is housed within the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center on CCMâ€™s campus at 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph. The galleryâ€™s hours are
Monday and Wednesday, noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday, noon to 8 p.m., Friday, noon to 4 p.m., and the first Saturday of the month (February 3) 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Included in the exhibition are the works of CCM adjunct professors Andrea Kelly, Marisol Ross and Leah Tomaino. The three professors will lead a panel discussion about open horizons on Thursday, February 1, at 5 p.m. Both the panel discussion and exhibition are free and open to the public.
The annual juried members exhibition is the largest of the year for NAWA. In 2015, CCM also held its exhibition, â€śArt of Transformation,â€ť which focused on the power of art to transform lives.
NAWA is the oldest womanâ€™s fine art organization in the country and an active community of professional women artists that strives to support its members and women artists at large through exhibition, programs and education.
