Marymount’s visual arts teachers are not only excellent educators, but they are also accomplished artists in their own right. We are thrilled to announce that two of our art teachers recently received several honors.
Jennifer Croson, Chair of the Visual Arts Department, won Best in Show at the Center for Contemporary Art for her work, “The Sea Harvesters.” The Center for Contemporary Art
is a vibrant regional art center in Bedminster, New Jersey, that offers in-person and virtual art classes, summer art camps, rotating art exhibitions, and community outreach programs. The juror, Mary Birmingham, is the Curator at the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, where she directs an ambitious program of contemporary art exhibitions and related events. The show runs until December 11, and Ms. Croson will have a solo exhibit at the Center in the spring. You can view more of Ms. Croson’s work through her website https://jennifercroson.com/
Artist-in-residence Mark Milroy won a Mercedes Matter award for his painting “Family Dinner” in the New York Studio School alumni exhibition, which runs until December 31 at 122 Grand Street. He was selected for this award by art dealer Christine Barry of Barry Campbell Gallery. Mr. Milroy also participated in the group show “Alone in This Together” at M. David & Co. in October and has an upcoming solo show with The Nancy Margolis Gallery in January. A color catalogue will accompany both his solo show as well as his interview on the I Like Your Work podcast
