A team of professional artists traveled to Oswego County BOCES recently to select staff-submitted artwork for display in the upcoming “On My Own Time” exhibit at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse.
After careful deliberation the panel selected the following employees and pieces for participation in the exhibit:
• “Recycled” by Vonda Bisha, Transportation
• “Rooted” by Kevin Clapp, Instructional Technology
• “If Butterflies Ruled” by Rhoda Cunningham, Adult Education
• “Morning Graze” by Alex McCombie, Instructional Technology
The unique “On My Own Time” community arts program celebrates the creative skills of employees of Central New York businesses and is co-sponsored by the CNY Arts (formerly the Cultural Resources Council) and the Everson Museum of Art.
“On My Own Time” will mark its 40th anniversary in Syracuse this year with special exhibit at the Everson Museum of Art in the fall.
The museum will hold a reception in honor of all of the selected artists including the four OCB employees.
OCB incidentally has been participating in “On My Own Time” for the past 12 years.
