“RE:SEARCH,” an exhibition of recent faculty art, opened at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC/CUNY) with a reception on Wednesday, February 22 in the Shirley Fiterman Art Center, 81 Barclay Street in Lower Manhattan. The exhibit will be on display through April 1, 2017.
“RE:SEARCH” provides a glimpse into the work of BMCC’s dynamic, diverse faculty of artists and designers. With a variety of approaches to art making on exhibit, BMCC faculty demonstrate expertise in techniques and styles ranging from traditional art media techniques in painting and sculpture that date back hundreds of years, to pieces made with advanced materials and cutting-edge technology.
Starting in Fall 2015, a new Art Foundations Program, conferring an Associate of Arts in Art History and Associate of Science in Studio Art, began preparing students for careers in the arts and successful transfer to four-year colleges. Art professors at BMCC have been helping students make that next step as they build portfolios for transitions to top art and design schools.
The artists include Yevgeniya Baras, Aisha Tandiwe Bell, Tess Bilhartz, Lynn Braswell, Simon Carr, Betty Copeland, Tim D'Agostino, Elisa Decker, Dikko Faust, Ana Garcés Kiley, Pat Genova (artwork above), John Goodrich (artwork top), Xico Greenwald, Sarah Haviland, Ann Hjelle, Sara Jimenez, Alessandro Keegan, Michael Leigh, Michael Paris Mazzeo, Charles McGill, Thaddeus Radell, Jessica Ramirez, Kimberly Reinhardt, Judy Richardson, Erik Saxon, Adele Shtern, Rachelle Street, Joan Thorne, AC Towery (artwork right) and Amy Westpfahl.
A portion of all sales from Shirley Fiterman Art Center exhibits goes to support the BMCC Foundation scholarship fund.
