Please join us to celebrate Press:Pause, an exhibition of works by MFA and Alumni from the State University of New York New Paltz curated by Shannon Stratton, Chief Curator Museum of Arts and Design (NYC).
[…] the empathy that much of the work communicates — for the environment, for animals, for ancestors, for neighbors and for strangers — is almost hopeful, even if the work itself is a harbinger for the social and political dangers that our current global condition portends. Rather than projecting messages — announcing or even yelling at their audience — this group has mined either the personal and poetic (even if it’s angry or hurt) or tuned into the tenor of the moment. […] That the impact of all of this isn’t gloomy is somewhat surprising, but perhaps that is what makes this show such an interesting bellwether.
— Shannon Stratton
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 8, 5-7pm
