Todd L. W. Doney, assistant professor of visual arts at County College of Morris (CCM), will have an exhibition of his recent artwork on display in the Starlight Gallery at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown.
The exhibition opens November 11 and runs through January 6. Gallery hours are two hours before each performance and by appointment. To set up an appointment, call 973-539-0345, ext. 6583. The Mayo Center is located at 100 South Street, Morristown.
Doney’s artwork features vividly colored landscapes that reflect the beauty and variety of nature found in his own backyard—the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. A Neo-Impressionistic and Neo-Romantic artist, he draws his inspiration from both classic and modern landscape artists.
Earlier this year, Doney held two solo exhibitions of his work at the Broadfoot & Broadfoot’s galleries in Boonton and New York City.
Last year, his work was included in an exhibition of New Jersey landscapes at Drumthwacket, the governor’s mansion, and at the Mansion in May at the Blairsden estate in Peapack-Gladstone. In 2013, he was invited to hold a solo exhibit at the Morris Museum. He also has held one-person exhibits at the Gallery MacEgan in Morristown, the College of Saint Elizabeth, New Jersey City University, Griffin Gallery in Madison and at the Brickton Art Gallery in Park Ridge, IL. His works are in public and private collections worldwide.
Doney began his education at a community college and went on to attend the prestigious American Academy of Art in Chicago. He earned his MFA from New Jersey City University. He joined the CCM faculty in 2011 and teaches drawing, painting, and portfolio and presentation classes.
