New student art exhibits in galleries

Two new student art shows will open this week in the Project Space Gallery and the Martin Mullen Annex in SUNY Oneonta’s Fine Arts Center.

“Doodles” by Anthony Ferris will be displayed in the Martin-Mullen Annex Gallery (the gallery lobby area), and “Old Dogs New Tricks,” an exhibition of oil paintings by Gerry Falco and Rich Page, will be located in the Project Space Gallery.

“Doodles” consists of a series of silkscreen prints, etching prints and books of doodles in a display case. On the wall behind the case are hundreds of the doodles reproduced from the “Doodle” sketchbooks.

In “Old Dogs New Tricks,” Falco and Page display examples of portraiture and landscape. Page explores a range of portraits with personalities ranging from dark and dangerous to lighthearted expressions. Falco presents a series of landscape close-ups revealing seasonal changes celebrated with color, form and abstractions found in nature. The two very disparate styles work surprisingly well together in this two-person show.

 

The Martin-Mullen Art Gallery and Project Space Gallery are free and open to the public from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday-Friday when the college is in session and during special events.
