Curious about how an artist utilizes color and other techniques to create a painting of his surroundings? On Thursday, June 13, artist Todd L. W. Doney, professor of visual arts at County College of Morris (CCM), will provide a behind-the-scenes demonstration of the process and materials he uses in his landscape paintings. The free session takes place at the Morris Museum, 6 Normandy Heights Road, Morristown, from 4 – 8 p.m.
The “Joy of Painting” demonstration will offer attendees the chance to watch as Doney creates a painting inspired by the landscape around the museum. They will learn how colors are mixed and how paint is applied to capture the subtleties of a sunset. They also will have the opportunity to get inspired by viewing Doney’s current exhibition, “Nature Sublime,” at the museum. That exhibition, featuring large, colorful works of New Jersey’s Great Swamp, runs through June 23.
A self-described neo-impressionist and neo-romantic, Doney has held one-person exhibits at Broadfoot & Broadfoot, Soho, NY, 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. Other exhibitions include the Paterson Museum in Paterson, The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey, The Arts for the Parks National Competition in Wyoming, and the Society of Illustrators Annual Exhibitions in New York among others.
Currently, his work is represented by Broadfoot & Broadfoot, located in the Lower East Side, NY, and Boonton, NJ. His works are in public and private collections worldwide.
Doney joined the CCM faculty in 2011 and teaches drawing, painting, portfolio and presentation classes at the college.
