Two events to kick off second ‘Graphic Flash’ exhibition

OSWEGO — SUNY Oswego students in the graphic arts and creative writing programs have teamed up for an exhibition titled “Graphic Flash 2” opening Nov. 8, with a special presentation on Nov. 12, on campus.

A SUNY Oswego exhibition titled "Graphic Flash 2" will open Nov. 8, at Penfield Library on campus, combing the flash fiction micro-stories of students in Leigh Wilson's advanced fiction-writing course with illustrations -- such as "Crickets" by David Swift -- by students in Amy Bartell's advanced graphics class. The exhibition runs through Dec. 7.

The exhibition runs through Dec. 7.

The “Graphic Flash” exhibition, following last year’s successful debut, will open with a reception from 4 to 5:20 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Penfield Library lobby. At 6:30 p.m. Nov. 12, readings will take place in the Campus Center auditorium as illustrations project on-screen. The exhibition will run through Dec. 7 in the library.

Graphic artists from art faculty member Amy Bartell’s advanced graphics class illustrated the flash fiction — stories of no more than 1,000 words delivering strong impact — of writers from English and creative writing faculty member Leigh Wilson’s advanced fiction-writing course to create what Wilson called “an explosion of creative collaboration, from striking micro-stories to bold and colorful illustrations.”

Both events are free and open to the public. Parking for those without a current SUNY Oswego parking sticker is $1; see oswego.edu/administration/parking for information.
