Inspired Colleagues; Selected Work by Teachers and Students

NYIT Gallery 61 is pleased to present:

Inspired Colleagues: Selected Work by Teachers and Students

September 5 – October 4, 2012

Viewing hours: Monday-Saturday, 8:30 a.m. - 6:30 p.m.

The idea for the show came from an announcement I received by mail from the artist Paula Overbay about an exhibit in which she was to be represented. The invitation was printed with an image that reminded me of a painting from a medieval manuscript and I wondered who encouraged her to produce such fine work. Then, in March, I saw the suspended wooden sculptures of Heechan Kim, who described the furniture class he had taken with Karl Burkheimer at the Oregon College of Art and Craft in Portland. I started asking students, and teachers, who had inspired them. Professor Robert Smith, from NYIT, mentioned Jon Monaghan, a graduate student from NYIT, who makes animation films. Professor David Diamond studied at Cooper Union years ago with Peter Schroth who uses David’s images as fine examples of student work.

The exhibition includes paintings, sculptures, animation and works on paper by students and teachers.  Each artist in the show is paired with their inspired counterparts and listed below:
