Summit Resident and Oak Knoll Senior Jaclyn McCall has Photograph Featured in Museum Exhibit

'Viewpoints' by Jaclyn McCall

SUMMIT, NJ - Hilltop City resident, and Oak Knoll School senior, Jaclyn McCall will have one of her photographs featured in a local art exhibit. The inclusion of 'Viewpoints’ marks the second time in the past year that McCall’s work will be showcased, with the picture chosen to be one of 50 student art and photography pieces to be included in the Fresh Perspectives juried exhibit at the Morris Museum in Morristown this month.

In March of 2015, the same photograph was featured in a Montclair Art Museum exhibition after it was awarded a Silver Key in the annual Regional Scholastic Art Competition.

Jennifer Breitenstein, Kent Place School Upper School photography teacher, praised McCall’s abilities as a “fast-moving, improvisational” photographer. “Jaclyn excels at experimentation with combining different media and in looking at scenes from a different vantage point,” Breitenstein said, noting McCall is the first Oak Knoll student to be featured in the Morris Museum exhibit.

McCall said the photo, which was taken last summer in the Musée d'Orsay Museum in Paris, France, was the result of her passion for photography that has grown during her years at Oak Knoll. “I have always loved photography and have been intrigued by the many different processes it takes for a photograph to be a successful and unique one.”

McCall added, "It feels incredible that I captured a moment that I not only found unique and awesome, but top notch judges also found intriguing and unique as well. I am very honored and excited to see where my interest in photography will take me in the future."

‘Viewpoints' was recognized among other student submissions at an opening ceremony last Friday at the Morris Museum. The photo will be on display at the museum, which is located at 6 Normandy Heights Road, through June 1.

Rate hikes can dampen bond performance, but keep perspective on how rising rates impact ...

Cluelessly Clueless

I teenaged my way through high school under the assumption that my parents had no idea what I was doing.  I like to think I was pretty good at withholding information and presenting situations in ways that were other than they really were.


Still, sometimes they found things out.  Like the time my friends plopped me on our front door step at one o'clock in the morning ...
