The Esther Massry Gallery is proud to show the works of 12 of the 19 recent Saint Rose graduates, in its first exhibit since the onset of COVID-19. After months of pandemic-enforced inactivity, the gallery is back in action for fall, featuring studio art and graphic design graduates of The Center for Art & Design. The Class of 2020 Art & Design Exhibition runs from Monday, August 31, through Saturday, September 26, at the Esther Massry Gallery, Massry Center for the Arts, 1002 Madison Avenue, Albany, New York, and is free and open to the public.
Previously scheduled for April, this show is a testament to the Class of 2020 and their innovation and dedication to their creative work, as well as their resilience amid the turbulence of the pandemic.
The Class of 2020 Art & Design Exhibition is a culmination of the students’ capstone experience and high points in their studies at the College. Painting & drawing and sculpture graduates from the B.S. and B.F.A. studio art programs display works based on independent research and their development of a unique and personal visual language. Graduates of the B.F.A. in graphic design present work based on their comprehensive theses, highlighting their ability to visually communicate and creatively problem solve using the language, platforms, and applications of their discipline.
The 12 participating graduates are Raina Briggs ‘20, Elaina Rose Brown ‘20, Natalia Carmon ‘20, Jessica Caruso ‘20, Elena Dauphinais ‘20, Gabriela Gordon ‘20, Tim Hussner ‘20, Esther Jewett ‘20, Anne Lin ‘20, Jasmine Mason ‘20, Alicia Barton ‘20, and Lisa Schroeder ‘20.
Other members of the Class of 2020, who were not able to participate in this exhibition due to extenuating circumstances, include Lillian Brennan, Carla Dortic, Gabrialla Ficano, John Grady, Alex Miller, Victoria Ranken, and Veronica Sack.
