The mission of the Bill and Patty Gorelick Galleries is to expose the CPCC students and community at all of our campuses to the visual arts. Exhibits rotate from campus to campus to allow the art to be enjoyed by as many people as possible. Mr. Gorelick had these words for CPCC students: ” I hope that you will find just one thing in this exhibit (or future exhibits) that you like. Your interest in something is yours; no one can take that away from you.”

Gorelick Galleries at Cato Campus
The Bill and Patty Gorelick Gallery at the Cato Campus will exhibit works from the collection of Bill Gorelick and watercolor paintings by Dr Ed Newman.
“Backyard Neighbors” is an exhibit among friends, neighbors actually for many year. One, a collector and half of the philanthropic pair behind the Bill and Patty Gorelick Galleries at CPCC, and the other, a retired radiologist loves the challenge of watercolor painting. Their combined exhibition of art is colorful, sometimes whimsical, and inspired by memories of travels and life experiences.
Directions to the campus can be found here.
Gorelick Galleries at Harris Campus
January 8 – December 18
Beginning January 8, the Harris Conference Center will host an exhibit by nationally known artist, Paul Farmer, entitled Revealing/Concealing. The exhibit explores the middle ground between painting and sculpture and, also, tests the limits of what the
paint medium itself can do. Farmer creates collages using many multiples of paint skins, sometimes becoming so dense that layers are hidden. These organic abstractions reveal the artist’s interest in natural processes, color and topography.
Directions to the Harris Campus can be found here.
Gorelick Galleries at Levine Campus
May 24 – July 31
The Levine campus gallery will feature a CPCC Alumni exhibit over the summer. Artists include Louise McGlaughlin, Manal Esmail, and Owl.
August 8 – December 18
An exhibit featuring photography by Serge Skiba and wood works by Bruce Lacy
The fall semester exhibit in the Levine Campus Gorelick Gallery features the photography of Serge Skiba. As an outdoor enthusuast, Skiba enjoys photographing the places he travels to in order to capture memories as well as to share with others. Skiba is always striving to learn new techniques of photographing a landscape in order to bring the best visual presentation possible. His photographs have been featured in international publications, art galleries, and commercial advertisements.
His hope is that some of his photographs have sparked a memory or have inspired you to act on your dreams.
August 13 – December 18
Cato Gallery will feature new works and a site specific installation by fiber artist, Sydney Sogol and metal works by Mark Klacza.
