The works represent a broad range of media and styles.

Christopher Giardelli, from Little Egg Harbor Township, mixes graphics and photography in a series of photos that describe the subject with a word and a color background.

“I wanted to show how graphic design and photography can collaborate,” he said. He will graduate in December and would love to work at a magazine in New York City, or in any type of artistic field.

Nancy Munroe of Galloway Township’s exhibit features colorful posters that promote books and reading, and a series of romantic wedding invitations. She is currently working for a wedding company editing photos and doing some graphics.Senior art show
