Felician Students Show Their Stuff at Local Art Show

Five Felician College art students showed their artistic talents when they recently participated in the 2nd annual Fine Art Show and Sale at the Kip Senior Center in Rutherford.

Several of the students’ works were purchased, with a portion of the funds benefiting the Center. Also, student Aminta Witkowski was awarded Second Place in The People’s Choice Award for her photograph “Winter Rest” of a wolf in repose.

“Our art students were well represented,” said Professor Mike Nyklewicz, Chair of Art and Music at Felician. “This is a great venue for students just beginning their college careers at Felician, as well as those looking towards starting their art careers after graduation.  I'm looking forward to what our students will have for next year's show!”

The Kip Center is a comprehensive and full time program promoting the physical, emotional, educational, and spiritual well-being of older adults. It is Bergen County's first nationally accredited Senior Center of Excellence and has a membership of more than 700.
