Dr. James Gwynne, professor of Visual Arts at County College of Morris (CCM), once again will be spending his summer exhibiting his large-scale paintings. The juror for the Roberson Museum and Science Center in Binghamton, NY, has selected two of Gwynne’s works for the museum’s 2013 Regional Art Exhibition: Landscape with Flag, 70 inches x 80 inches, and Stormy Sky with Telephone Pole, 70 inches x 75 inches.
The exhibition opens Sunday, July 14, with an Artists’ and Members’ Opening Reception and Award Presentation and runs through October 27. The museum, www.roberson.org/, is located at 30 Front Street in Binghamton, NY.
Serving as juror for the exhibition was artist and photographer John Brunelli, director of Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts in Binghamton.
Gwynne’s work has been widely exhibited in more than 300 shows and is represented in many private, corporate and public collections, including the New Jersey State Museum and Pennsylvania State Museum.
Last summer, Gwynne, a resident of East Stroudsburg, PA, received the Painting Award at the Westmoreland Art Nationals Juried Exhibition for his painting Sky Dance III, a large bold work depicting a spiraling red cloud against a deep blue sky. In 2010, he received the Best in Show award at the Westmoreland Art exhibition for his painting Asleep on Blue Drape. Also last summer, he was one of 34 artists nationwide asked to participate in the 13th annual Will’s Creek Survey juried art exhibition in Maryland.
Gwynne joined the CCM faculty in 1972. He also has taught at The College of Wooster, OH, and Centenary College. He earned his B.A. from The College of Wooster and his M.A. from Michigan State University, and his Ph.D. from New York University.
