Last Chance to see the Atrium Gallery’s Winter 2012 Exhibit


 Be sure to catch the Arts Council of the Morris Area’s Winter 2012 Exhibit before it closes on March 13, 2012. Embracing a very wide variety of subject matter and media, the 181 artworks highlight the creative energies of 8 artists whose works are exhibited on the four floors of the Gallery. On the fifth floor, Raymond Sicignano’s Urban Expressions features bold, colorful renderings of cityscapes which capture the singularity and distinctiveness of neighborhoods all too often replaced by sterile franchises, malls and corporate logos. On the fourth floor, Adel Gorgy’s recent body of work, Seeing Art Anew, is a collection of photographs whose subject is art itself, honing in on visual phrases from great paintings as the basis for new compositions or exploring the world or realism and abstraction. On the third floor, Michael Paxton’s photographs capture the serenity and devotion of monastic life in Laos and Myanmar (Burma) while Sandra P. Smith’s multimedia abstracts capture deep emotions and Karen Lundquist’s Post Impressionist oils burst forth in a riot of color and energy. In the atrium stairwell area between the second and third floors, you can view some of artist John Tetz’s fascinating mobiles, Feather Pieces.  Finally, on the second floor, experience the unique “naïve” style of Romanian artist, Alex Chereches and the intriguing, contemporary canvasses of Jennifer Levine.

Located at the Atrium Gallery, located on Floors 2-5 of the Morris County Administration and Records Building, 10 Court Street in Morristown, it offers 181 artworks by 8 artists.
