OSWEGO — Two SUNY Oswego master’s candidates in graphic arts will open an MA Thesis Exhibition titled “Instill” on Nov. 22, in Tyler Art Gallery on campus.
Bachelor of fine arts candidates will open a companion display, and participate in the free public artists’ reception that day from 5 to 7 p.m. at the gallery. Bachelor of arts degree recipients also will hold an exhibition in a gallery in Room 201 and elsewhere around Tyler Hall. The free exhibitions will run through Dec. 13.
For his part in “Instill,” Jeffrey Newell of Liverpool will display more than 15 large prints of black-and-white portraits and one film.
“The portraits capture human beings in an unsuspecting state while their faces are at rest, while the film shows natural processes put in motion from a unique perspective,” Newell said.
Justin Mastrangelo, a native of Savannah, explores digital culture through the lens of design. His work presents personal, public and professional design, with an emphasis on image and language relationships.
Bachelor of fine arts candidates, each choosing a concentration in a studio art or in graphic design, include Amanda Auwarter of Binghamton, Stephanie Barkley of Syracuse, Rachel Brennan of Binghamton, Breanna Busch of East Aurora, Shelby Demers of Syracuse, Gracie Dreher of Troupsburg, Joshua Garguilo of Clifton Park, Anne Greco of West Islip, Joseph Ostrom of Sterling, Corbin Roberts of Liverpool, Colin Sixt of Rochester, Rebecca Townsend of Greene, Roddy Wahl of Binghamton, Zachary Wilson of Binghamton and John Woodworth of Hudson Falls.
SUNY Oswego’s undergraduate studio art disciplines include ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.
MA and BFA candidates need to display their work as part of degree requirements; the Bachelor of Arts Exhibition is voluntary.
Tyler Art Gallery is open from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays. Parking for those without a current campus parking sticker is $1; see www.oswego.edu/administration/parking for more information.
