Student Art Work Sought for Goldfarb Exhibition
Submitted by Meagan Fazio
All full-time students of the University of Hartford are invited to submit up to two works of art to be considered for the exhibition. Of the works selected for the show, two undergraduate students will receive purchase prizes in the amount of $1,000 each. The winning students' art work then becomes a part of the Goldfarb Memorial Collection, owned by the Hartford Art School and proudly displayed throughout the University in offices and public spaces.

Clinton Jukkala, Yale University assistant professor of painting/printmaking and director of undergraduate studies in art, will jury this year's show. Jukkala received a B.F.A. in painting from the University of Washington in Seattle in 1995 and an M.F.A. in painting from Yale University in 1998. He is represented by Envoy Gallery in New York, and his work has been included in recent exhibitions at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and ZieherSmith Gallery in New York. He has also taught at the University of Connecticut and Quinnipiac University.
The first annual Juried Student Art Exhibition, as it was then called, was held at the Joseloff Gallery in the late 1980's. Alexander A. Goldfarb, the late Hartford attorney and art aficionado, generously endowed a fund at the Hartford Art School to support the annual exhibition and provide prize money for the students.
The Joseloff Gallery is open daily, Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 12-4 p.m. Please call (860) 768-4090 for more information, or visit www.joseloffgallery.org.
