Oswego State Downtown celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting
Oct. 31, and an opening reception for the gallery's first art exhibition —
Students from Julieve Jubin's studio practicum course are showcasing their
work in the new space. They chose "Ready!" as a theme to reflect their
preparedness for post-graduation life as well as their readiness for more
connections between the college and downtown community, Jubin said.
SUNY Oswego has leased the main floor of a former bank building at the
corner of West First and Bridge streets as a gallery and retail outlet selling
college merchandise. The college's Auxiliary Services began operating the site
earlier this month.
"The work in this premier show has been thoughtfully selected to suit this
specific gallery site, with a conscious eye towards our efforts to bridge the
community with the campus," said Michael John Sturdevant '07, one of
Jubin's students. "The student artists use many different media and concepts to
reflect their artistic interests," he added. "There is something for everyone
to appreciate at the gallery opening, from rich paintings to soft textual
drawings, photographs and other mixed media."
"Ready!" will be on exhibit at Oswego State Downtown, 186 W. First St.,
through Nov. 30. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; 11
a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday; and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Oswego State Downtown
will be closed Thanksgiving Day.
