Testing the Boundaries of Contemporary Works
Gain new insight into the stretching of boundaries in contemporary art and design as demonstrated by faculty from both County College of Morris (CCM) and East Stroudsburg University (ESU) at the first Spring Semester show at CCMâ€™s Art Gallery.
The East Stroudsburg University & County College of Morris Collaborative Faculty Exhibition now on display runs through Thursday, February 23. A reception, free and open to the public takes place Thursday, February 2, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The exhibition features work from faculty members in the Art & Design department at CCM and the Art+Media+Design department at ESU.
â€śThis is truly a collaborative effort between two preeminent schools of art and design in the Northern New Jersey/Eastern Pennsylvania region,â€ť says Brian Sahotsky, professor of Visual Arts and gallery director. â€śThe aim of this exhibition is to showcase the quality work of each schoolâ€™s faculty and to cultivate a reciprocal relationship between like-minded institutions. The creativity and uniqueness of the work is a testament to a pair of interdisciplinary faculties interested in testing the boundaries of contemporary art and design.â€ť
The exhibition showcases the works from inter-related disciplines and includes traditional wall-hung pieces, gaming displays, photographic installations, jewelry design, industrial design, virtual reality mock-ups, audio/performance pieces, 3D printed sculpture, graphic design logo boards, costume design and several multimedia pieces.
â€śIt is a truly special occasion when professional educators can come together to produce such an interesting and varied showcase of art and design,â€ť notes Sahotsky.
The Art Gallery is located in the Learning Resource Center on CCMâ€™s campus, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph. Gallery hours are Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
