Two student art exhibitions open March 24

working on artTwo exhibitions featuring student talent—the 43rd annual Juried Student Art Exhibition and the Spring Master of Arts Thesis Exhibition—are on display in Tyler Art Gallery.

For many years, the Student Association Art Exhibition Committee has been an active sponsor and participant in the juried exhibition, which is traditionally the most popular gallery event of the academic year. This exhibition will feature original artwork in a variety of media such as ceramics, oils and acrylics, watercolors, photographs, graphic design, drawings, sculpture, mixed media and video.

The exhibition is a competition open to any undergraduate student enrolled at SUNY Oswego. Invited jurors review the submitted entries and make the final selections. This year’s jurors are Laura Coburn of Coburn Design in Auburn and Wayne Williams, a sculptor and professor emeritus of Finger Lakes Community College in Canandaigua.

The Spring Master of Arts Thesis Exhibition will run at the same time as the juried exhibition. It will feature recent work by studio art majors Lindsey Guile and Rich Mulye and graphic arts majors Casey Feeney and Erin Sadowski. The installation fulfills a final requirement for the master of arts degree.

Both exhibitions run through April 19.

Exhibitions and programs presented by Tyler Art Gallery are free and open to the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. weekends.

People with disabilities who need assistance to attend this event should contact Tyler Art Gallery at 312-2113 in advance.
