Arts Alive March 2020

Arts Alive! Juried Show -- March 2020

Gannett-Tripp Library Lobby​

For the first time, the Elmira College Arts Alive Juried Student Show will feature two artists to exhibit for the month of March: Kenta Okumura '21 and Alex Taylor '23. The juror, Philadelphia artist Jeremy Foldesy, says the choice was difficult. He wrote, "Both students are talented and passionate about what they do. They both deserve to be awarded this honor. This would force them to collaborate, and figure out together some kind of unifying theme. Installing an exhibition like this is a creative act in itself. I look forward to seeing what they come up with." Foldesy found Kenta's photography to be the most compelling of all the works in his portfolio. Conversely, Foldesy felt Alex's portfolio contained an overwhelming variety of media, and suggested that his pyrography, as well as his portraiture, were areas he should continue to explore.

The exhibit is located in the Gannett-Tripp Library lobby and will be on view from March 1 through the end of the month. Hours for public viewing are 10:00 am-8:30 pm daily.
