Exhibition: The Benefits of Making 10 More ...
For the fifth consecutive year, the year-end thesis exhibition by students enrolled in Advanced Study in Drawing and Painting at Hudson Valley Community College will travel to Art Omi. An opening reception will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on May 19.
Students featured in this year’s exhibition, “The benefits of making 10 more…,” are Jada L. Belton, Corey R. Cimijotti, Albina Luisa Cook, Mariah M. Day, Carla Dortic, Takia Gibbs, Sanghai M.J. Kamara, Joel Olzak, Renee Riley, Lisa M. Schroeder, James Scott, and Steve Wilson. Statements by each artist are included in the exhibition catalogue that includes an opening essay by Professor Thomas Lail. Lail teaches Advanced Study in Drawing and Painting, an academic year-long course of guided study for Fine Arts Department students who have completed foundation arts courses and wish to pursue the development of their own body of work. “The benefits of making 10 more…” previously was exhibited in The Teaching Gallery on Hudson Valley Community College’s Troy campus.
