Phil Young's Art Sale

Hartwick’s Young to Host Art Sale to Benefit College

August 8, 2013

On Saturday, August 17, Hartwick College Professor of Art Emeritus Phil Young will host an art sale during which he will be selling a significant portion of his work. The event will be held from 1-5 p.m. in the Foreman Gallery of the Anderson Center for the Arts on the college campus, and is free and open to the public. Young will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale to benefit the College.

Throughout his time at Hartwick, Young explored the connections of his Cherokee/Scots-Irish heritage to the land. His widely exhibited paintings, works on paper, handmade paper pieces and mixed media installations affirm the necessity of "on/site for insight" geophysically/culturally/autobiographically. Locations ranged from the vast, varied terrains of the American Southwest to the New Jersey shores. The works for sale vary in size from small intimate watercolors to large scale acrylic paintings. Phil Young's Art Sale

Young's work has been included in many public and private collections and he has exhibited in such venues as the Heard Museum, the Munson Williams Proctor Institute Museum of Art, the William Benton Museum, the Atlanta History Center, Art-in-General, and the Swiss Institute in NYC. National Exhibitions include "Our Land/Our Selves," and "Native Views: Influences of Modern Culture Contemporary Native American Art," a four year "Artrain" traveling show. His work has also been reproduced in On the Beaten Track & The Lure of the Local (L. Lippard).

Young is recipient of residencies at the Millay Colony, the Kohler Foundation, and received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant in Painting and Sculpture, and a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Sculpture.
