Students of the College at Brockport Department of Art have been hard at work. Before the COVID-19 precautions, they made art all year in the studios. Some of those works are included in this year’s student art exhibition, “Silience.”
The challenge that Tim Massey, gallery director, faced was how to share the show with the public while everyone is self-isolating and galleries are closed. He decided to hang the show anyway, filmed it and released a virtual tour.

The Department of Art welcomed Carolyn Ford as juror for this year’s exhibit. Ford, an art professor at Limestone College in South Carolina, said that when traveling she relishes learning odd folklore about each place she experiences, thus attempting to sneak in some humor or stretch the truth in her art.
Massey said he looks forward to celebrating students’ artistic achievements.
“Even during a pandemic and sequestering and social distancing, it is still the pinnacle of our exhibition season,” he said. “It wouldn’t be right to let art go unseen.”
