The show, which is free and open to the public, will run through Friday, July 19. Joseloff Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
About the Hartford Art School Low Residency MFA in Illustration: This prestigious program is designed for illustrators, graphic designers, and art educators who seek an advanced degree in illustration and who want to enhance their illustration skills through an infusion of studio time with fellow industry professionals, unique travel contact periods, and notable guest speakers from around the country. Students work closely with leading illustrators in the only low-residency MFA program in the country dedicated exclusively to illustration.
The program, now in its eighth year, is run by internationally renowned illustrator, educator, and art historian Murray Tinkelman and his wife, Carol. In June, Murray Tinkelman was inducted into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame, the highest honor in the field of illustration.
