Featuring the Best of the Best
The Art Gallery at County College of Morris (CCM) this spring will be offering up the best of the best from the works produced by Visual Arts, Animation, Design and Photography students at the college.
Two Portfolio Class exhibitions have been organized for Art Gallery visitors to explore the creative works of students at the college. The first, the Visual Arts & Animation Portfolio Exhibit opens Thursday, April 13. A reception, free and open to the public, will be held that day at 6 p.m. That exhibition runs until April 26. The second exhibition, the Design & Photography Portfolio Exhibit opens Thursday, April 27. A reception, free and open to the public, will be held that day at 6 p.m. That exhibition runs until May 10.
At CCM, Portfolio classes represent the summation of a studentâ€™s work from two years of creative studies at the college.
â€śOur Portfolio classes help students to critique, improve and select their best work; create effective presentations; write documents for marketing their creative work; and develop portfolios to gain entrance to four-year colleges and universities should they wish to pursue a bachelorâ€™s degree,â€ť notes Todd L. W. Doney, CCM professor of Visual Arts.
â€śI am consistently impressed and inspired by the work of our students,â€ť adds Kelly Whalen, chair of the Art & Design department. â€śItâ€™s such an honor to watch them as they grow and develop their skills and talent.â€ť
The CCM Art Gallery is located in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center on the collegeâ€™s campus, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph. Gallery hours are Mondays through Saturdays, from 9 a.m. â€“ 6 p.m.
