Chuck Law’s Whimsical Paintings on Display at ACCC Art Gallery

April 9, 2008

"A Different View: Contemporary Still Life Paintings" by Linwood artist Chuck Law will be the featured exhibit at the Atlantic Cape Community College Art Gallery April 2-May 2. An opening reception with light refreshments, where the public can meet the artist, will be held Sunday, April 13, 1-4 p.m. Admission is free.

Law's modern still life paintings of beach gear, rows of candy buttons and the like are included in private collections throughout the United States as well as Europe. He has been the recipient of many awards for his unique oil painting style done in traditional realism with a contemporary viewpoint. Law also expresses himself through plein air landscape, marine art and animal paintings.

Law was born in Nice, France. He grew up spending time between Southern New Jersey and Norfolk, Va. Much of his artwork has been influenced by his proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and Chesapeake Bay. Law's 20-year career as a floral designer has also enriched his talent for color, composition and natural form. He began pursuing painting on a full-time basis in the spring of 2005.

The Gallery is at the Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike, in C Building.
