On and Off the Wall Art Exhibition

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Montgomery County Community College is pleased to host “On and Off the Wall” art exhibition featuring artists Nancy Moldofsky and Warren A. Morgan and Jerilee Nichols of Morgan Bockius Studios, Perkasie, at the College’s Fine Arts Gallery, 340 Dekalb Pike, Blue Bell, from June 26 through Aug. 1.

A “Meet the Artists” reception will be held on Wednesday, June 26, 5-7 p.m. Both the exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

Artist Nancy Moldofsky, an adjunct fine arts instructor at MCCC, will be exhibiting a selection of her digital media fine art and photography, both digital and silver gelatin prints.

Moldofsky has a BFA degree with a concentration in digital media from Arcadia University and a master’s degree in fine arts with a concentration in art education from Arcadia University. She is an active member of the Greater Norristown Art League, where she has served as president from 2011-2013 and also on the board of directors since 2007. Prior to her career in fine arts and art education, Moldofsky served as the Head of Radiation Safety and as a medical physicist at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia.

Moldofsky has exhibited and won awards for her artwork in numerous juried exhibitions, including MacWorld, San Francisco; Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, State College; Scenes of the Schuylkill Exhibition, Pottstown; Center on the Hill Fine Art Exhibition, Philadelphia; “Drawn From Nature,” 8th Annual Juried Art Show at The John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove and numerous juried exhibitions at the Greater Norristown Art League.

In her work, Moldofsky combines her love of photography and her expertise in digital imaging techniques to create very personal digital representations of the world she experiences, ideas from literature and her own personal life and dreams as she interprets them with her sense of reality. Her works predominantly employ photo based images of an organic nature along with hand-rendered art and found items to create original imagery.

Morgan Bockius Studios has been designing and crafting custom stained glass for 50 years. Its work can be found in residences, commercial buildings and churches. Warren Morgan started the studio, after learning art from his mother Elva Bockius and stained glass craftsmanship from his stepfather Robert Bockius.

The studio has always worked with varied techniques and artist styles, many of which will be exhibited, including traditional leaded glass, painted glass, glass carving and fusing.

Jerilee Nichols joined the studio in 2007, and she brought with her a background as an artist and stained glass craftsman. She set to work to develop techniques for fusing glass. Combining her artistic ability with her knowledge of glass fusing, she has produced the wonderful pieces that will be on display.
