Stefanie Rocknak's sculpture, and the Hamilton prints

Rocknak’s Sculptures, Hamilton Printmakers on Display in Foreman Gallery

January 20, 2011

The works of Associate Professor of Philosophy Stefanie Rocknak are currently on display in the Foreman Gallery, Anderson Center for the Arts, on the Hartwick College campus. The exhibit is on display through February 3.

In addition to being a philosopher, Rocknak also is a professional sculptor whose work has been shown throughout the United States, including New England, California, and New York City, and most recently in Berlin, Germany.

She also has been featured in numerous national publications and e-zines. As with her philosophy, her work is historically influenced, but only in terms of learning a technique that transcends the eccentricities of personal expression; there is much to be learned, she claims, from responsibly participating in a tradition of artistic formulation. Her work may be seen at: http://www.steffrocknak.net.

William Salzillo, Bruce Muirhead, Jake Muirhead, and Amy Georgia Buchholz, four Hamilton College artists, whose teacher/student relationships have shaped their art and careers, have collaborated on printmaking for over 30 years.

Exhibiting together has allowed this group to make a statement about printmaking as a medium, about artistic collaboration, and about friendly influences. Linked philosophically to the Arts & Crafts Movement, this group is committed to keeping alive the tradition of studio printmaking while promoting contemporary relevance. Currently, 40 intaglio works are on exhibit in the Foreman Gallery.

In January the Foreman Gallery is open Wednesday and Friday from noon to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m., and other times by appointment. For additional information call Nancy Golden at 431-4575.
