Landscapes, portraits, and graphic art are all on display at the County College of Morris art gallery.

The CCM art gallery, located near the library in the Learning Resource Center, is hosting a photography exhibition showcasing artwork from various New Jersey artists. 15 members of the New Jersey Photography Forum (NJPF) will display their work.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with one of the largest photography groups in New Jersey to present this special exhibit in our gallery,” said Todd Doney, professor of visual arts and curator of the CCM gallery.

The exhibit, titled “Dimensions: A NJPF Invitational,” features work from artists all over New Jersey encompassing a broad range of subjects, ranging from traditional portraits and landscapes to abstract photography. Art featured will have been captured in a variety of ways, using traditional film photography, digital photography or even cell phone photography.

“This exhibit will not only be a visually exciting event for the viewer, it will also be instructional and inspirational for the young student photographer who is just starting to explore the art form,” said Nancy Ori, co-curator for the exhibit. “We are very happy to be partnering with the County College of Morris with this special project. As an organization, we are dedicated to developing the art form of photography and assisting artists to grow and develop in the field.”

Giovanni D’Amico, a visual arts major, said he thinks the artwork on display is amazing.

“It’s great to see new things curated by the school,” said D’Amico. “They rotate it frequently, so there’s always something new to see.”

All works presented in the exhibit will be available for sale.

The next show presented in the gallery will be a student best-in-show, planned to start on April 17.
