The exhibition, featuring approximately 40 pieces of student artwork, is being curated by Todd Doney, CCM professor of Fine Arts. The exhibit runs from March 3 – 30. A reception, free and open to the public, will be held Tuesday, March 10, from 5 – 7 p.m.

This is the seventh year that MPAC has hosted the CCM Fine Art Students exhibition. The opportunity first came about in 2014 through a collaboration between Charles Miller, the manager of Art Upstairs, and Doney.

CCM logo“Besides the fantastic opportunity of having their work being seen by a large audience, the Art Upstairs gallery offers students the chance to sell their work at the exhibit if they desire,” notes Doney. “This added benefit offers students a real-world experience in the gallery business.”

MPAC is located at 100 South St., Morristown. For gallery hours and contact information, visit https://www.mayoarts.org/art-upstairs. For information on the CCM Department of Art and Design, visit http://bit.ly/CCMFineArts.
