Staff Report

Long considered one of the favorite holiday shows of the year by area art connoisseurs, Northeastern Junior College (NJC) is once again hosting its Annual NJC Holiday Faculty Art Exhibition in the Peter L. Youngers Fine Art Gallery of E.S. French Hall on NJC’S main campus.

The exhibit showcases the work of current and retired NJC faculty and staff. Among the exhibiting artists this year are Neil Browne, Joyce May, Jesse Moreno, Larry Prestwich, Penny Skoglund, Emily Vines, and Peter Youngers.

The exhibition includes works in ceramic, stained glass, pen and ink, watercolor, photography, 3-D sculpture and much more. It is open for public viewing from November 25 through December 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays and 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. The exhibit is free and those who come to view it are able to just enjoy time in the gallery, on their own, surrounded by beautiful art.

A reception with the artists will be open free of charge to the public on Thursday, December 6th from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Refreshments will be provided along with holiday performances by NJC music students.
