The display highlights current pieces produced by the faculty and staff of the Art and Art History Department at SUNY Cortland and reflects a diverse range of studio practices cultivated by its members. The exhibition offers students the opportunity to view work by their mentors, and it gives the campus community and region the chance to contemplate artwork being produced in a wide range of media within the Department. Featured artists include Martine Barnaby, Stephen Alexander Clark, Allison DeDominick, Jeremiah Donovan, Charles Heasley, Hannah Hones, Szilvia Kadas, Jenn McNamara, Scott Oldfield, Jaroslava Prihodova, Vaughn Randall, Wylie Schwartz, and Bryan Valentine Thomas. Participants teach courses in art history, ceramics, design, drawing, fibers, painting, photography, printmaking, new media, and sculpture.
The exhibition is a testament to the faculty’s commitment to the process of innovation in combination with tradition they bring not only to their work but also to the classroom. As accomplished makers, collaborators, and researchers, they prove to be a vital part of the SUNY Cortland’s School of Arts and Sciences.
