OSWEGO -- Tyler Art Gallery at SUNY Oswego will host two new exhibitions, the Bachelor's of Fine Arts/Master of Arts Thesis Exhibition and "The Abstract Tradition," opening with a public reception from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15. Both exhibitions will continue through Dec. 13.
Candidates for bachelor's and master's degrees in fine arts must exhibit their work as part of the degree requirement. Work by graduate student Mark Boyce will be featured in the master's exhibition.
Undergraduate work exhibited will represent graphic design and studio art, the two art degree concentrations at Oswego. Students participating from studio art include Garret Jones (Cicero), Pam O'Connor (Oswego) and Christine Walker. Those in the graphic arts discipline include Joe Anderson, Justin Blue (Oswego), David Dillabough (Pulaski), Jessica Haas (Corfu), Rob Henning (Williamson), Steve Kowalik, Rachel Perry (Fulton), Samantha Starks (Marion), Laurel Streeter (Gouverneur), Travis Thayer (Syracuse) and Rebecca White (Clinton).
Because the number of candidates has increased, a BFA/MA exhibition also will be presented in the spring to include work by additional students graduating in May, said Mindy Ostrow, assistant director of Tyler Art Gallery.
Using works from the permanent collection of art at SUNY Oswego,the second exhibition, "The Abstract Tradition," will focus on 20th century examples where line, color, form and space become the exponents of nonrepresentational imagery, Ostrow said. Selected pieces from the college's collection of 1,300 works will include paintings, prints and sculpture.
Gallery hours are 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Saturdays. Tyler Hall is handicapped accessible, and all gallery programs are free and open to the public. For more information, call Tyler Art Gallery at 312-2113.
