Art Upstairs Gallery:
CCM at MPAC - County College of Morris Student Art Exhibition: 
March 14, 2017 - April 10, 2017 

Fine Art students of County College of Morris will exhibit their work at Mayo Performing Arts Center’s Art Upstairs Gallery from March 14-April 10.  The exhibition will be curated by CCM Prof. Todd Doney and will feature 30 - 40 works of student art.

This marks the fourth year that CCM students will have the opportunity to display their work at the Art Upstairs Gallery.

The exhibit provides a real life experience for the students. They entered their pieces for consideration to a selection committee of CCM faculty who selected the final pieces to be included in the exhibit. The selected pieces will then be brought to the Art Upstairs Gallery for exhibit. The show will be juried by Charles Miller, photographer, who will also provide feedback to the students. Awards, sponsored by Dick Blick Art Supplies, will be given for Best in Show, two Awards of Merit and three Honorable Mentions. Also, the students may sell their work at the exhibit if they desire. 

About The Art Upstairs Gallery:
The Art Upstairs Gallery, located in the balcony lobby of MPAC, showcases visual artists from a variety of disciplines, including watercolor, oils, photography, sculpture and more. Each year, the works of over 200 artists are showcased in group exhibits. Each exhibit hangs from six to eight weeks. Groups that have been showcased include the Essex Watercolor Club, New Jersey Photography Forum, Millburn-Short Hills Art Center and more.

The gallery provides a unique opportunity to marry the visual and performing arts, and to provide exposure to these artists to an audience that may not normally frequent an art gallery.

Artwork is available for purchase. The Gallery is open two hours prior to showtime and by appointment. For more information, please contact Charles Miller at cmiller1@mayoarts.org.

The Art Upstairs Gallery is a gift of the John and Margaret Post Foundation.

She teaches currently at the International Center of Photography, NYC, and has taught photography courses at Parsons School of Design, NYC, The Penumbra Foundation NYC, NJ Center for Visual Arts, Summit NJ and Seton Hall University, NJ. A New Jersey native and current Morristown resident, Tricia studied Fine Arts at Drew University and Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of the Arts, where she received a BFA in Painting and Art History. Her early work with painting transformed into a passionate interest in photography when she worked in the fashion industry for several years, collaborating with many creative photographers, travelling extensively throughout Europe, Australia and India and becoming inspired to become a photographer herself. Tricia mainly works with analog and darkroom processes, shooting and developing film and personally printing her own work with care and expertise. Over the years, Tricia has built a body of work based on pinhole photographs of European scenes including chateaux, landscapes and gardens in France and Italy.  She also is the owner of Tricia Rosenkilde Photography, a studio specializing in animal portraiture and handmade platinum prints of dogs and horses.

Her “New Jersey Scenes” series currently on view at MPAC’s Starlight Gallery showcases views of local scenes of historic and visual interest that express Tricia’s pride in her home state.
