HAMILTON TOWNSHIPAtlantic Cape Community College’s Art Gallery is featuring “Life Filled with Light,” an exhibit of paintings by artist Sister Celeste Mokrzycki of Brigantine through April 27.

There will be a reception 4:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, April 11. The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

Mokrzycki’s exhibit will display paintings of landscapes, seascapes and figures in watercolor and pastel. She enjoys working with these mediums because she can capture fleeting moments of light and luminosity, which she believes make ordinary moments extraordinary.

Mokrzycki was born in Poland and is a Roman Catholic nun and full-time pastoral associate at St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Brigantine.  She developed a love of art and drama while living in Bayonne.

Mokrzycki has studied at Chestnut Hill College, the Fashion Institute of New York and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.

Most recently, Mokrzycki studied with Rae Smith, president of the Pastel Society of America.

The art gallery is located in C building (C-125) on the Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike.
