Visual Arts Exhibition Features 75 Works by 36 Alumni
Galloway, N.J. – Thirty-six alumni will have their art work represented at the Visual Arts Alumni Triennial Exhibition at the Stockton University Art Gallery from June 23 through Aug. 2.
An opening reception will be held from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday, June 23.
Tom Moran, Chief Curator for Grounds for Sculpture, was the guest juror for the exhibition. He selected 75 pieces of art of various media including printmaking, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, and graphic design/visual communication.
The 36 alumni selected for the exhibition graduated from Stockton between 1982 and 2017. Those graduating from the Studies in the Arts/Visual Arts program with a BFA, BA, or as a minor were eligible to enter. Selected artists include alumni Jeff Quattrone of Woodstown, Nikki Robinson of Marmora, and Bruce Mohn of Jackson.
