Oswego State Downtown displays paintings of 6 advanced students

Works of six advanced students of Christopher McEvoy, assistant professor of art at SUNY Oswego, are on display through May 15 in the gallery at Oswego State Downtown, corner of West First and Bridge streets.

The artwork features a variety of subject matter and stylistic approaches, to reveal the students’ artistic range as well as their achievements.

The students are Matthew Hotaling, a junior from Fulton; 
Michelle Bennett, senior, East Syracuse; Toni Burrows, junior, Oswego;
 Kate Walseman, junior, Carthage; Michael Sturdevant, senior, Rome; and Katie Kretschmer, sophomore, Brewerton.

“A big part of this is a way of giving them a show that isn’t as attached to the school, that’s semiprofessional, so to speak,” said McEvoy, who is in his first full-time year at the college. “It’s a way to make the work more available to the community.”

In addition to the gallery space, Oswego State Downtown also offers SUNY Oswego apparel, memorabilia and event information. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.

For more information, call 216-4985.
