The Department of Art and Design at County College of Morris (CCM) hopes to bring some normalcy back for Portfolio and Presentation students at the college and the public by holding an exhibit of their creative works in the college’s Art and Design Gallery.

The exhibit includes the work of both fine arts and design students at the college. A reception for the fine arts students will take place Thursday, December 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. A reception for design students will be held Thursday, December 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. Both receptions, along with the exhibit, are free and open to the public. The exhibit runs through Thursday, December 17.

The Art and Design Gallery is located in the Learning Resource Center on CCM’s campus, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph. The gallery hours are Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Given current circumstances, the schedule for the exhibit and receptions are subject to change.

Visitors are asked to follow the signage on campus to have their temperature screened before entering the gallery. Everyone who comes to campus is required to wear a mask and the campus is adhering to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention capacity guidelines.

“Portfolio and Presentation 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,” notes Todd L. W. Doney, CCM professor of visual arts
