OSWEGO -- Students in SUNY Oswego's "Book Arts"
course, offered by Professor Kelly Roe of the college's art department,
participated in a group exhibition titled "What's Under Your Cover?"
that opened Friday, April 30, at Cherrywood Studio off Cemetery Road in
the town of Oswego.
The weekend exhibit featured a collection of work by
16 students. Approximately 90 people attended the opening, where
students entertained family, friends and community members with tales
of how and why they created their pieces. The works on display showed a
full range of media and stretched the concept of the book as a
repository of information.
Cherrywood Studio, owned and operated by local
teacher Chris Zollo, provided a warm and natural environment, said art
Professor Cynthia Clabough, head of the college's graphic design
program. Its large windows and wooded location provided a scenic
showcase for the more than 30 works on exhibit, she noted.
