Oswego State Downtown art exhibit to celebrate winter's variations

SUNY Oswego students in a computer graphics course will show their work in a free exhibit titled “Variations on the Theme of Winter” Dec. 3 through Jan. 29 at Oswego State Downtown.

An opening reception will take place 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 10, at the store and gallery, located at West First and Bridge streets.

Students of faculty members Amy E. Bartell and Jeff Welsh in Art 207, “Introduction to Computer Graphics Imagery,” will present their artwork in a postcard-size format to enhance and reinforce a sense of the intimacy of the season.

Presented through its broadest filter, winter can be a time of reflection, celebration, renewal and joy, the show’s hosts said. Winter can offer the challenges and memorable stories of long shadows, wind and waning light. The students’ images will speak to the broad brush of influence that winter paints.

Oswego State Downtown, an extension of the College Book Store, offers merchandise, information and ticketing for SUNY Oswego events, in addition to the gallery. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

The store is closed Sunday through Tuesday, and also will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, both Saturdays, as well as New Year’s Eve day on Friday, Dec. 31. Hours for Thursday, Dec. 30, are 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
