"We are pleased to be able to share their accomplishments with the community," said Rachel Seligman, director of Mandeville Gallery.

"Instructions" - Kota Kobayashi
Each year, the Mandeville Gallery presents a selection of rotating exhibitions of contemporary art, science, and history. Included among these is a group exhibition of the work of our graduating visual art students. The Union College Senior Exhibition creates an opportunity for these art majors, their professors, their families, and their friends, to look back over four years of creative effort at Union College.
"Time develops technology" - Harrison Paras
This show provides a chance for these artists to exhibit an overview of their accomplishments, and both they and their audience are able to view the work in the context of the group as a whole.
The Wyckoff Student Gallery on the third floor of the Nott Memorial is simultaneously hosting "Sculpture in Minor - Aaron Agostino, John Erianne and Martin O'Brion Jr. " through June 11.
Three graduating students with visual arts minors who have focused on sculpture; "a strong show with some impressive work" said Rachel Seligman. There are approximately 16 works in the show (including some photographs.)
Marty O'Brion's work involves creating the expression of emotions through male and female steel figures posed in expressive positions atop mirror glass which reflects and amplifies their forms.
John Erianne's work involves the process of inflating steel - creating delicate, weightless feeling, biomorphic forms which are in fact made of solid, heavy steel.
Aaron Agostino's small steel pieces are lyrical, linear abstractions and his black and white photographs are similarly elegant and abstract.
Gallery hours are Monday to Sunday, daily from 10 - 6 p.m. For additional information, please call our Information Line: 518-388-6004 or Mandeville Gallery Offices: 388-6729.
