The College Student Juried Art Exhibit is open to students at four area colleges and universities: Clarkson University, St. Lawrence University, SUNY Plattsburgh, and SUNY Potsdam. For this year’s exhibition, juror Gregg Fedchak selected 20 works by 15 artists to be in the show, including paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, digital, and time-based works.
The student artists in the exhibition are Earl Barcomb (St Lawrence University), Kalen Bjerga, Reina Boyea, Hayley Castagnier (St Lawrence University), Roscoe Duquette, Victoria Ervin, Liv Gonia, Ayisha Idi Khalid, Kailey Maher, Wynter Malone, Titania McFarlane (St Lawrence University), Madison Mundy, Sophie Robie (St Lawrence University), Felicity Sarsfield, and Mollie Ward.
“I was delighted by the incredible variety of art submitted for this show,” Fedchak remarked. “These students are full-fledged artists now, and this show proves it. As they work and study they’ll find the creative life one of many roads and destinations. I hope the artists in this show will pursue their work with pleasure and with seriousness and use it as the lens through which to process their lives.”
Many of the students' work on display in the Remington exhibit will be for sale. One-third of the proceeds benefit the Frederic Remington Art Museum, and two-thirds go to the artists. Artworks may be purchased through the Museum’s online shop.
