Exploration Exhibit

Hartwick College to Display “Exploration” Exhibit

February 6, 2014

From Thursday February 13 - March 21, 2014, "EXPLORATION" will be on display in the Foreman Gallery of the Anderson Center for the Arts at Hartwick College. An opening reception to kick off the start of the exhibit will be held on Thursday, February 13 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. The opening reception and the month-long exhibit are both free and the public is encouraged to attend.

Eight artists, selected by Hartwick College Professor Emeritus of Art Phil Young and Professor of Art Katharine Kreisher, will express through painting, photography, video, and sculpture the personal and cultural landscapes which shape their art.  

Exhibiting artists include Mark Van Wormer, Angela Faris Belt, Jaune Quick-to-See Smith (enrolled member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Nation, Montana), M. Laine Wyatt, Nancy Callahan, Eric Gansworth (Onondaga), Alan Michelson (Mohawk), and Melanie Printup Hope (Tuscarora). 

EXPLORATION artists will speak to the 2013-2014 Hartwick College Campus Theme, "Exploration", and of their work toward understanding our role as human beings from distinctly different cultural and political perspectives. The artists are from as near as Gilbertsville, Troy, and New York City, and as far as Florida, Colorado, and New Mexico.

This exhibition is supported, in part, through funding from the 2013-2014 Hartwick College Campus Theme.

Gallery hours are from Tuesday through Friday, Noon to 8 p.m.; Saturday, Noon to 4 p.m. For more information on this exhibition, please call the Foreman Gallery at 607-431-4663 or contact the Hartwick College Art Department Office at 607-431-4825.
