Foreman Gallery

The Foreman Gallery of Contemporary Art is the central exhibition space located in the Anderson Center for the Arts. September through May the Foreman Gallery hosts several art exhibitions featuring the artwork of national and international guest artists.

Gallery talks or lectures by guest artists often accompany an exhibition. Student work is on exhibit three times each academic year beginning with the Juried Student Show in the fall. The Foreman Gallery also hosts Junior Review and Final Senior Projects in Art in the spring.

Contemporary art exhibits hosted by the Foreman Gallery are developed to connect a diverse audience to the visual arts, and the humanities. Many exhibitions aid the student in course study of fine art by providing clarity to the current discussions, issues and topics in art.

The Hartwick College Foreman Gallery of Contemporary Art is open to the community. All are welcome to experience the art exhibitions and their related programs.

Special Summer 2019 Exhibit

June 13 – August 11 –  Stephen Joseph: “Broadway Revealed: Behind the Theater Curtain”

An exhibit showcasing some of Broadway’s most critically acclaimed productions, by renowned photographer Stephen Joseph.

Upcoming 2019 Fall Exhibit

September 12 – October 26 – Philemona Williamson

Large paintings and soft sculpture figures that “depict individuals of varying ethnicities inhabiting timeless, invented, dream-like environments, states Williamson. I probe the psychological landscape of adolescence, blurring the lines between race, gender, and class.”

Philemona has been guest lecturer/adjunct faculty at schools of art and design including Bard, Parsons, Rhode Island School of Design, Pratt University, Cooper Union and others. In her New Jersey studio Ms. Williamson creates paintings, and sculpture for her extensive group and solo exhibitions.
