"Surface Tension" Opens at The Gallery Jan. 11
The Gallery at Mercer rings in 2012 with "Surface Tension: Works by Ayami Aoyama and Florence Moonan." The show will run Jan. 11 through Feb. 9. A reception with the artists will be held Wednesday, Jan. 18, 5 - 7:30 p.m., and a Gallery Talk will feature the artists on Thurs., Feb. 2, starting at 7 p.m. All events are free and open to the public.
Gallery Director Tricia Fagan says, "In creating their art, the two artists featured explore “surface” not only as a noun -- that flat plane, whether canvas or raw stone on which they make their marks -- but also as a verb. Each artist in her own way coaxes, cajols, teases her medium in order to allow secrets that lie beneath that first impression to rise to surface where viewers to catch a glimpse."

Gallery hours for the spring semester are: Tuesdays, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.; Wednesdays, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and 6 - 8 p.m.; and Thursdays, 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. and 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. For more information, call the Gallery at 609-570-3589 or e-mail gallery@mccc.edu.

Student Earns Degree Six Months After High School Graduation
Paul Jones (A.A., Liberal Arts) graduated from Steinert High School in June 2011. Just six months later, he graduated with highest honors from MCCC with an associate's degree in Liberal Arts. One of the most memorable courses Jones took was Honors Fantasy Literature with English Professor Ed Carmien. While taking a Java Programming course taught by adjunct instructor James Slocum, Jones made the decision to major in Computer Science. "Professor Slocum was so influential in my decision. His passion for his topic and advice about education persuaded me." Jones is continuing his education at Rutgers University. Full story here.
