The show, “Mark de Mos and Friends,” runs from tomorrow, Dec. 7, to Friday, Jan. 28.
A reception for the artists is scheduled for noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 12.
“My goal, as an artist, is to produce art that is alive, not static and that creates a drama, a feeling, a slice of life,” says De Mos, a Morristown resident. “As I paint I react to what is on the paper, and I can see the interesting color and tonal elements that will make it come to life.”
The exhibit features works by De Mos (above) and his students – Anita Adelman, Keiko Matsuura, Tomoko Sugihara, Myrle Scott, Dottie Glen, Jane Stein, Erola Pellegrino and Joy Xie.
De Mos is a member of several art associations, including the Allied Artists of America, the New Jersey Pastel Society and the Essex Watercolor Society.
Two more paintings, plus more info, follow.
De Mos’ paintings have won dozens of awards, been featured in several magazines and books, and displayed in galleries in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Maryland.
His images can be viewed on his website, www.demosfineart.com.
