County College of Morris portfolio show highlights talent of young artists and designers

RANDOLPH TOWNSHIP, NJ ( Morris County) – Beautiful works of art and a virtual walk-through of the County College of Morris Gallery highlight the accomplishments of the talented students enrolled in the Department of Art and Design.

“While it is unfortunate that the increase in COVID rates now prevents us from showing these works in the college’s gallery, this online option also means people can view the exceptional talent of our students from the comfort of their homes,” saidTodd L. W. Doney, CCM professor of visual arts.

The impressive artwork featured in the exhibit is the culmination of the students’ hard work and creativity while in the Portfolio and Presentation courses at CCM. In those courses, students learn to critique, improve and select their best work. These artists develop skills for writing documents that help market their work to galleries, museums and even prospective clients. Many students develop their portfolios with an end goal of gaining entrance to four-year colleges and universities.
