Jurors for this year’s exhibition were Sharif Bey, a ceramic artist and associate professor in art education, teaching, and leadership in two of Syracuse University’s schools: Visual and Performing Arts and School of Education; Sarah McCoubrey, a landscape painter and studio arts professor at Syracuse University’s School of Visual and Performing Arts; and Miranda Traudt, director of arts programming at SUNY Oswego and an adjunct assistant professor at Le Moyne College and Onondaga Community College.
In addition to Made in NY, the Schweinfurth is hosting two solo exhibits. The Accidental Immigrant, by artist and Syracuse University art professor Tom Hall, examines the impact being an immigrant has on the lives of people who leave their country looking for the promised land of safety elsewhere. It will be located in the Davis Family Galley on the Schweinfurth’s second floor.
Ill Fusions, an exhibit by Rochester Institute of Technology instructor and Bevier Gallery coordinator Shane Durgee, will be located in Gallery Julius. Durgee’s digital collages accented with painting “can be seen as a metaphor for how the digital world has become integral to our social lives,” he said in his artist statement.
All three exhibits will be on display from April 20 through June 17, 2018, with the opening set for 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 20. The Schweinfurth Art Center is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. The cost to view the exhibits is $7 per person, but free for children 12 and under, members, and artists in the shows.
Schweinfurth Art Center is funded, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
