Portraits by more than 30 artists will fill the Therese A. Maloney Art Gallery in Annunciation Center at the College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE), 2 Convent Road, Morristown, N.J., in a new exhibition that opens June 10 with a reception that is open and free to the public. The exhibition closes August 15, 2010. Through paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs and collage pieces, Who We Are: Contemporary Portraits documents a myriad of ways that artists investigate and record themselves and the people around them.

Dover sculptor Jim Kearns's portrait by CSE adjunct art instructor Ellen Denuto pays double homage to him as well as to his figurative sculptures, one of which is in the show. A 10-foot by 8-foot collage portrait of Van Gogh made out of current art world detritus including NYC Gallery Guide pages, bar codes, security envelopes, packing tape and pencil drawing, is the contribution by Athens, N.Y. artist Sam Sebren. Digital painter, Wayne Roth, a Mountain Lakes, N.J. resident, combines a photograph and his own digital creations to produce a memorable portrait of Eric Pryor, the director of the State Museum in Trenton.

Pulled from newspapers, silly putty portraits are placed in petri dishes that make up an accumulation piece called Cultures by Fairfax, Va., artist, Travis Childers. Short Hills, N.J., photographer, Leslie Milton, depicts herself as a tiara and tutu-wearing Tinker Bell, ready to scrub the bathroom. Hair patterns fascinate Wayne, N.J., artist, So Yoon Lym, while Neal Korn from Union, N.J., is fascinated by odd vistas of his subjects' chins and upside down eyes.

These portraits and more may be seen during the Gallery's summer hours, Tuesday through Sunday, 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. or by appointment (artgallery@cse.edu or 973-290-4314).

Starting June 23, 2010, visitors may picnic on the grounds and enjoy Carlo Goldoni's play, The Servant of Two Masters, presented in the College's outdoor Greek Theater by the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey. For tickets and information, call 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org
