Opportunity to View the Best Creative Works Being Produced Through Focused Study

RANDOLPH TOWNSHIP, NJ (Morris County) – Looking for an opportunity to view creative works up close and personal?

The Department of Art and Design at County College of Morris (CCM) hopes to bring some normalcy back to the community as it celebrates and honors the work of its students by hosting the Spring 2021 Student Portfolio and Presentation in the college’s Art and Design Gallery.

The exhibit opens April 1 and runs through April 15 in the gallery located in the Learning Resource Center (LRC) on CCM’s campus, 214 Center Grove Road, Randolph. A reception, free and open to the public, will be held Thursday, April 15, from 6:00 p.m. to 8 :00p.m. Everyone who comes to campus is required to wear a mask and practice social distancing, and the college is following state capacity guidelines.

The Portfolio class represents the summation of all of a student’s work from two years of creative studies at the college. Students exhibiting this spring are majors in Fine Art and Animation.

“Portfolio and Presentation courses at CCM help students to critique, improve and select their best work; create effective presentations; write documents for marketing their creative work to galleries, museums and prospective clients; and develop portfolios to gain entrance to four-year colleges and universities,” said Todd L. W. Doney, CCM professor of visual arts.

Gallery visitors should enter through the main LRC entrance where they will be temperature checked. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
