Recent 2023 Exhibitions

2023 Goldfarb Juried Student Exhibition

January 26–February 11

Artwork by some of the University's most talented students was on display for the annual Alexander A. Goldfarb Juried Student Exhibition in the Joseloff Gallery.  This exhibition is a longstanding event at the university.  In the late 1980’s, the Alexander A. Goldfarb Memorial Trust was created at the University of Hartford to honor the late Alexander Goldfarb and his dedication to the arts.  This trust would fund the Juried Student Art Exhibition—as it was then called—to be held annually at the Joseloff Gallery.

The winning students’ artwork becomes a part of the Goldfarb Memorial Collection, owned by the Hartford Art School and proudly displayed throughout the University public spaces. 

This exhibition and associated events are made possible by the Alexander A. Goldfarb Endowment fund held by the Hartford Art School Endowment, Inc.
