Opportunity to View the Best Creative Works of Aspiring Artists

Viperfish and Parasite IllustrationLooking for an opportunity to view creative works up close and personal? This season is a great time to indulge in your love of design and art at the County College of Morris (CCM) Art & Design Gallery. The Department of Art & Design is celebrating and honoring the work of students with a Fall 2021 Design and Visual Arts Portfolio Class Exhibition.

The exhibit opens December 1 and runs through December 16. A reception, free and open to the public, takes place Thursday, December 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. The gallery is located in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center on CCM’s campus, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph. Everyone who comes to campus is required to wear a mask indoors and practice social distancing.

The Portfolio class represents the summation of all a student’s work from two years of creative studies at the college.

“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.

Gallery 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 1 a.m. to 2 p.m.
