EDISON—Nineteen alumni artists from Middlesex County College will be displaying their artwork at the college during the month of October. The public is invited to view this work, as well as attend a reception in honor of the artists, on Thursday, Oct. 1, from 4:30-6:30 p.m.
The exhibit will be on display for the rest of the month of October. Hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday. The exhibit and reception will be in the Art Gallery on the top floor of the College Center, and in the Studio Theatre Gallery.
“I’m very excited about this year’s art exhibit,” said Dorothy Bitetto, the events chairperson for the Alumni Association. “This is the largest number of artists we’ve ever had and their work is absolutely superb. Visitors will be extremely impressed.”
The exhibit, which is part of the college’s 45th anniversary celebration, is being held in conjunction with the college’s Department of Visual, Performing and Media Arts. Many of the artists are fine arts graduates.
“I am so impressed with the work our alumni have created,” said Professor Susan Altman, who taught many of the artists when they were students. “Many are working in the field; some have gone into other professions, but what unites the work is the great passion they have for art and the creative process. The department is very proud of them.”
Nadine Heller, the chairperson of the department, said the exhibit will allow the public to see the caliber of the graduates of the program.
“They are working in a variety of media, and have very different styles and perspectives,” she said. “But the work is excellent and I think it shows what a quality program we have, and the strength of our graduates.”
