"Generations II" in Tyler gallery showcases artists of many ages

Artwork of SUNY Oswego student teachers, their public school students and teaching supervisors will come together when the “Generations II: MAT Exhibition” opens March 26 in the college’s Tyler Art Gallery.

The public can meet the artists of all ages and see their creations at an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. March 26 in Tyler Hall.

During their elementary and secondary student teaching assignments, SUNY Oswego master’s in art teaching students identified exemplary student work created under their instruction. They collected these samples for exhibition, which will hang alongside the SUNY Oswego students’ creations and artwork by their supervising teachers, creating a spectrum of creativity across ages and generations.

Students in SUNY Oswego’s MAT program have completed a bachelor of fine arts and are seeking master’s degrees and art-teaching certification. Those students participating in this show include Sara Bailey, Sarah Brooks, Eva Calzada, Jason Cheney, Michelle Ekross, Claire Ellsworth, Michael Flint, Sara Gotlib, Lydia Groskin, Justin Moshaty, Mindy Pavone, Laura Rasmussen, Carla Senecal, Michelle Strader, Jennifer Tighe and Megan Williams.

“Generations II” will run concurrently, through April 11, with the Kingsford Park Elementary Project, showcasing fourth-graders’ drawings of local historical buildings, and “From Paint to Pixels: Master of Arts Thesis Exhibition.”

Tyler Art Gallery is open from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Parking is free in campus lots on evenings and weekends. For more information or for visitors needing accommodations to attend, call 312-2113.
