The County College of Morris’ Art Gallery is pleased to announce the latest exhibition, “Fragile Attachments and the Space for Repair,” featuring the works of two New Jersey artists, Alaine Becker and Gail Winbury.

The exhibition runs through January 27. A reception, free and open to the public, will be held Thursday, December 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.

The CCM Art Gallery is located in the Sherman H. Masten Learning Resource Center on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road, and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Fragile Attachments and the Space for Repair,” examines and dissects the artists’ personal stories and traumas. The world they portray is the world of women. Most of the pieces in “Fragile Attachments and the Space for Repair” are works on and with paper, unframed and fragile. Delicate pieces are contrasted with large, bold canvases.
