SUNY Ulster faculty selected the work of six SUNY Ulster students and graduates
The SUNY Ulster students selected are: Kat Aponte (Kerhonkson, Fine Arts major), Victoria Barringer (Kerhonkson, Fine Arts major), Amari Brodhead (Kingston, Fine Arts major), John Dell’Olio (Westbury, Advertising, Design and Graphic Technology major), Liz Galeano (Highland, Class of 2018 Advertising, Design and Graphic Technology major), and Keira Swisher (Kingston, Class of 2018 Fine Arts major).
The exhibition will be held at The Plaza Gallery in Albany’s SUNY Plaza. It is open to the public during regular office hours. The artwork will remain on display through May 2019.
Fine Arts Program Coordinator Iain Machell notes, "This is such an excellent opportunity for our students. The students who attend the exhibition get to see their work next to that of their peers in other SUNY art programs and discover what these other art programs may offer, since they may very well be transferring to a 4-year BFA program at a SUNY college. Seeing their work on display in a professional exhibition does wonders for their self-esteem, and it's a great line for their resume!”
The SUNY Student Exhibition is an annual showcase of the art projects from art departments throughout the SUNY system. Every SUNY campus is invited to select the top seven art projects from their departments and exhibit them in The Plaza Gallery. An invited juror will select the best work from this exhibition for a summer show, the Best of the Year SUNY Student Exhibition. Students are eligible to receive awards in the Best of the Year exhibition. SUNY Ulster has participated in these SUNY-wide exhibitions since 2003.
