Dr. James Gwynne, professor of visual arts at County College of Morris (CCM), recently received another award for his artwork. The latest recognition was presented to Gwynne on Sunday, July 14, for one of his paintings included in the Roberson Museum and Science Center’s 2013 Regional Art Exhibition in Binghamton, NY. He was awarded second place for his large-scale piece Landscape with Flag, 70 inches x 80 inches.

Artists within 150 miles of Binghamton were represented at the exhibition. The show was juried by John Brunelli, director of Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts in Binghamton. First, second and third place winners were recognized during the award ceremony.

Works in the Regional Art Exhibition will be on display at the museum through October 27. The museum, www.roberson.org, is located at 30 Front Street in Binghamton, NY.
