The Oswego Art Faculty Exhibition will run through Nov. 20, showcasing the range of skills and creativity of art faculty members both in Tyler Art Gallery and in a virtual exhibition.

The exhibition includes full-time faculty, as well part-time and adjunct faculty plus professional staff. It represents a cross-section of artistic media and stylistic approaches to offer something for any taste.

Participating artists include Amy Bartell, Suzanne Beason, Cara Brewer Thompson, Cynthia Clabough, William DeMott, Benjamin Entner, Michael Flanagan, Suzanne Gaffney Beason, Steven Ginsburg, Melissa Martin, Christopher McEvoy, Richard Metzgar, Rebecca Mushtare, Juan Perdiguero, Kelly Roe, Lisa Seppi and Renqian Yang.

This is the second show of the semester that they are presenting virtually as well as in the gallery, said Flanagan, director of Tyler Art Gallery. The gallery traditionally welcomes a lot of visitors from off-campus, but those visits have dropped dramatically due to the pandemic, which makes the virtual exhibition a valuable companion piece.

Flanagan said he recently had a conference call with other gallery directors and staff within the SUNY system where he learned many galleries did not open this fall. The ones that did proceed with the exhibits, Flanagan recalled, had to make some adjustments to controlling audience and other risk factors, as well as what they were showing.

“Because of that, we really looked at our schedule as putting up shows that have little or less cost to them,” Flanagan said. “It doesn’t seem to make sense to put a lot of energy into an exhibit and spend a lot of money and then have a small audience.”

Overall, Flanagan said the pandemic has affected the submissions, the content and the audience.

“The opening reception is the night where we get the biggest visitation -- sometimes there’s an artist talk or something like that -- and we really eliminated it for the time being,” Flanagan said.

Tyler Art Gallery is open with masking and other distancing requirements, as well as with controlled capacities, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
