CRANFORD - To celebrate the memory of Dr. Murray Shereshewsky, an art show will be presented in the Richel Student Commons at Union County College’s Cranford campus on May 31, 2015. The show will be open from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
A professor of Psychology and Sociology at Union County College, Dr. Shereshewsky was also a talented professional artist, recognized for the quality and variety of his paintings. His work demonstrates great diversity of themes, drawn with pen and ink, tempera paints and mixed media.
Dr. Shereshewsky’s professional career as a respected teacher, school administrator and professor spanned 40 years. Always a champion of young people in need, donations to the show will benefit those students he most wanted to help – first generation students who just need a little extra assistance to succeed in college.
Dr. Shereshewsky, who earned his PhD from New York University, served as Executive Director of the National Alternative Education Association and published in the fields of History and Education. A longtime resident of Westfield, NJ, Dr. Shereshewsky passed away in April 2014.
Although admission to the show is free, the suggested tax-deductible donation to the Union County College Foundation is from $25-$50. All donations are to be submitted directly to Union County College Foundation, via the website, www.uccfoundation.org or by mail to 1033 Springfield Avenue, Cranford, NJ 07016.
