Goldfarb Student Art Exhibition to Open Wednesday
The opening reception for the annual Alexander A. Goldfarb Student Exhibition, and the presentation of awards, will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 17, from 5 to 7 p.m., at the Joseloff Gallery. Awards will be announced at approximately 6 p.m.
The exhibition and awards, which are open to all undergraduate and graduate students of the University of Hartford, are an opportunity for students to showcase their talent and celebrate their artistic accomplishments.
Each year, students are invited to enter their finest work, which is juried by a professional in the visual arts. Entries reflect a wide range of media, including drawing, painting, graphic design, illustration, sculpture, ceramics, video, and photography.
This year’s juror is Clinton Jukkala, Yale University assistant professor of painting/printmaking and director of undergraduate studies in art.
During the opening reception, the names of the two student artists who will receive Purchase Awards in the amount of $1,000 each will be announced. The winning students’ work will become part of the University’s permanent collection. The Purchase Awards were established by Alexander A. Goldfarb, who was dedicated to the arts and to furthering the careers of young artists. The awards are made possible through the Alexander A. Goldfarb Endowment Trust.
The Goldfarb exhibition will remain on display until March 21. 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. For more information, call the Joseloff Gallery at 860.768.4090 or visit www.joseloffgallery.org.
