SUNY Oswego graduate and advanced ceramics students will “Go Big!” starting with a free artists’ reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, at Oswego State Downtown.
The “Go Big!” exhibition, featuring large works and installations by students of art department faculty member Roxanne Jackson, will run through Feb. 8 at the downtown gallery and branch of the College Store, corner of West First and Bridge streets in Oswego.
jackson said students with work in the exhibition include Linda Paris, Stephanie Arney, Kathryn Alonso-Bergevin, Desirae Collins and “Lotus” Lu.
“This project asked students to challenge themselves by creating an installation and/or large-scale sculpture,” Jackson said. “They were encouraged to think outside the box, take risks, try something new and incorporate mixed media.”
Students will be expected to install their own work for the exhibition. “In addition to thinking about form, students were required to consider the space surrounding their work and the presentation of their work,” Jackson said.
Oswego State Downtown is open noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays. The store and gallery will be closed on Thanksgiving.
