Assemblywoman Aura Dunn has once again opened her Chester office to exhibit the work of six art students from County College of Morris (CCM), allowing the public to view and enjoy pastel landscapes created by these talented artists. This is the fourth time Dunn is hosting an art exhibition by CCM students.

“Having this student exhibition at Assemblywoman Dunn’s office is a terrific way for the public to gain exposure to the work of CCM Fine Arts students,” says Fine Arts Professor Todd Doney. “Many people go in and out of the office daily and since the work is displayed in the waiting area the pieces can be easily viewed. We are all very happy to continue this partnership.”

The students from Doney’s fall 2022 Drawing 2 class were asked to explore and portray the beauty of Morris County in their work. The exhibition features the work of the following students:

  • A Smile Worth Millions by Skylar M. Badia of Pine Brookpaintings hanging on office wall
  • Calm Down by Stephanie Goebel of Mine Hill
  • Sunset Street by Christine R. Hamilton of Randolph
  • Lake Arrowhead by Caterina D. Leff of Denville
  • Untitled by Fabrizio J. Rufasto of Randolph
  • Horseshoe Sunset by Christopher J. Wright of Mt. Olive

The exhibition will run through May at Dunn’s office at 191 Main Street, Suite D, in Chester. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
