Grad student to display work in MAT Exhibition

Nick Malchoff will show his graphic design work starting Friday, March 25, in SUNY Oswego’s Master of Art Thesis Exhibition.

An artist’s reception will take place from 5 to 7 p.m. in Tyler Art Gallery. The exhibition will run through April 8, according to Michael Flanagan, assistant director of the gallery.

During his studies here, Malchoff has lent his skills to the CenterState CEO economic development organization in Syracuse, the SUNY system and its professional science master’s programs and to SUNY Oswego’s Division of Graduate Studies.

Concentrating in digital environments, Malchoff, who has a bachelor’s from SUNY Oswego with an emphasis in graphic design and a minor in marketing, has pursued an interest in human-computer interaction and how usability studies can be applied to new touch-screen devices.

Last summer, Malchoff earned a Festa Graduate Leadership Fellowship—named for alumnus Fred (‘81) and Mary Lynn Barbero Festa (‘82)—and used the opportunity to work for CenterState CEO. In cooperation with his colleagues there, he created brochures and sell sheets for various organizations.

Tyler Art Gallery is open 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. On the weekends, parking is free for those visiting the gallery.
