Saturday night reception for artist Serena Bocchino opens show to continue through June 30 at Simon Gallery in Morristown.

Bernards Township opened her new exhibit, FEVER, with a reception on Saturday evening at the Simon Gallery in Morristown. The exhibit will continue through Saturday, June 30.

The wine-and-refreshments reception on Saturday was open to the public. Bocchino was on hand to greet guests who came to view her jazz-inspired work in visions of vibrant red, gold, and graphite grey, with some other accents, on the primarily enamel and graphite canvases.

Bocchino's works has been displayed locally, and throughout venues in New York, New Jersey, San Francisco and as far away as Rome.

Bocchino, daughter of noted artist Lucia Bocchino, also at the , named to honor her late mother, to encourage and showcase young artists.

"Bocchino has developed a signature style based on her individual method of pouring paint and lyrical color sense," according to the booklet handed out at the reception.

"Jumpy and hot, these new paintings and drawings have both raw energy and cool intellect," Donna Gustafson, Andrew W. Mellon Liaison for Academic Programs and curator at Zimmerli Art Museum, Rutgers University, was quoted in the review in the booklet.

The gallery is at 48 Bank Street in Morristown.

I can agree to that, having been at the FEVER art reception. How about, before taking it down, a live jazz concert, w/more refreshments & wine?
