SUNY Oswego studio art students will appear from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 5, at the SUNY Oswego Metro Center in Syracuse for the free public opening reception of an exhibition titled “Simultaneous Contrast.”

The abstract paintings are already on display at the SUNY Oswego Metro Center, in the Atrium, 2 Clinton Square in downtown Syracuse. The exhibition will run through June 15.

Composite of abstract paintingsThe students of Christopher McEvoy, assistant professor of art, have dealt with personal approaches or directions in abstract painting and the contrasts that result in combining these works in one show.
