Three Hartwick Faculty in 62nd Exhibition of Central New York Artists

January 25, 2010

Three members of Hartwick College's Department of Art will join dozens of others when their work is on display at Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute in Utica, NY for the 62nd Exhibition of Central New York Artists this spring.

Arkell Hall Foundation Professor of Art Katharine Kreisher, Assistant Professor of Art Stephanie Rozene, and Professor of Art Phil Young will be represented in the exhibit, for which an opening reception and members' preview will be held from 5-7 p.m. on February 6. Their works, and those of 28 other artists from throughout the region, will be on display through May 2.

Both Rozene and Young will participate in the Meet the Artist Gallery Talk Series (Kreisher was part of the series in 2009). Rozene and Arjan Zazueta will speak of their work in a session titled "Craft: A 21st-Century Definition" on Wednesday, February 24. Young and Lou Getty will address health and wellness issues related to art in "Nurture or Nature" on Wednesday, March 17.

According to exhibit organizers, "with 31 artists from 26 counties presenting a rich body of material, visitors can consider 21st-century perspectives on contemporary art and life in assemblage and collage, ceramics, drawing, installation art, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, video, and some hybrids that make today's art scene so fascinating."
