Visual Artists Honored with Public Exhibit
Assemblywoman Aura Dunn has opened her Chester office for the third time to the work of six art students from College of Morris (CCM), giving the public the chance to view and enjoy the pastel landscapes of these talented artists.
Dunn is carrying on a tradition established by Senator Anthony M. Bucco in 2013. While serving as an assemblyman, he began showcasing the exceptional work of CCM artists. The Summer/Fall installation continues that longstanding relationship with students from Professor Todd Doneyâ€™s Drawing II class.
â€śHaving our students show their work at Assemblywoman Dunnâ€™s office is terrific vehicle to gain exposure for their work,â€ť Doney said. â€śMany people go in and out of the Assemblywomanâ€™s office on a daily basis and since the exhibit is in the waiting area, it is almost impossible to miss. We are all very happy to continue this partnership.â€ť
The students were asked to explore and portray the beauty of Morris County in their work.Â The current exhibit includes â€śGreat Swampâ€ť by Frederick Caracci of Morristown, â€śLandscape in New Jerseyâ€ťÂ by Yunjie Chen of Randolph, â€śPink Sunsetâ€ť by Elizabeth Frost of Great Meadows, â€śBeach/White Meadow Lakeâ€ť by Cassidy Lazariuk of Rockaway,Â â€śLeaving Morris Countyâ€ť by Nate Quintero of Newton, andÂ â€śMooney Mountainâ€ť by Jessica Vassoler of Roxbury.
The exhibition will run through December at Councilwoman Dunnâ€™s office at 191 Main Street, Suite D, in Chester. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
