Hey this is cool .... If your looking for an "Art" experience without having to travel into New York City, check out the Salomon Kadoche exhibit at the Ocean County College Gallery, on the OCC Campus in Toms River. Kadoche is a professional pastel painter from New Jersey ( Originally from Casablanca, Morocco ) his subjects range from floral, fruit, still-lifes, and marine scenes to figurative works in oil. His still-lifes are breathtakingly rendered, his landscapes explore undiscovered places, and his portraits almost talk to you. He earned his BA from Hunter College and has studied at both the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Check out Jersey Arts for more on Kadoche and his work!
A great day trip right here in Ocean County, I'll be heading over to check it out! The Ocean County College Gallery is normally open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Saturdays when classes are in session. Additionally, the Gallery will be open to the public when performances and events take place in the Arts & Community Center Theater. (Please check the theatre schedule for times and events.) Large groups planning to visit the Gallery are asked to make arrangements with the Director of the Fine Arts Center at least one week in advance. For more information, call the Ocean County College Arts & Community Center Box Office at 732-255-0500.
A little more about Kadoche .... he has won many prestigious awards including the Pastel Society of America and the Dianne B. Bernard Award in Pastel from The Art Spirit Foundation. He has also won awards for a lifetime devotion to the arts, and the Newington Award for best painting in show from the American Artist Professional League, a national organization based in New York, dedicated to recognizing visual artists.
The exhibit runs from July 16th to August 30th
