BFA Exhibition to feature works of 14 student artists

SUNY Oswego’s fall Bachelor of Fine Arts Exhibition will open Friday, Nov. 30, with a free public reception from 5 to 7 p.m. in Tyler Art Gallery.

The reception for the 14 BFA students will coincide with pre-exhibition festivities for four students displaying works in the Master of Arts Thesis Exhibition in the gallery. Both shows will run concurrently through Dec. 12 with the Bachelor of Arts Exhibition in Room 201 of Tyler Hall.

Eleven bachelor of arts candidates are eligible to display their artwork in the non-required BA Exhibition. Bachelor of arts students pursue multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary studies in psychology, communications, marketing and other majors, in addition to art. BFA students participate in SUNY Oswego’s demanding and focused programs in studio art or graphic design.

SUNY Oswego also offers a master’s degree in art as well as a master’s in art teaching.

Tyler Art Galley is open 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Admission is free, with donations appreciated. For more information, call 312-2112.

Parking at SUNY Oswego is by permit only. Gallery visitors may purchase—either online or at the college’s parking office near the main entrance on State Route 104—a $1 visitor permit to park in Lot E-18, the southern half of the lot behind Hart and Funnelle residence halls.
