The Amelie A. Wallace Gallery will close its first exhibit of the spring semester with a program featuring a musical performance by RoBurrage Productions.

“Paradox of Constructed Nature: The Faculty Show 2020” opened in February to showcase the works of nine adjunct faculty members of the Visual Arts Department at SUNY Old Westbury. The title of the exhibition refers to the seeming contradictions and incongruities revealed in the constructed nature of these artists’ subjects and the materials. This impressive collection of works showcases the significant contribution these artists make to the Visual Arts Department and the role models they offer to our would-be artist students. Equally impressive is the diversity of these faculty members’ personal identities, as they represent multiple cultures, ethnicities, and countries of origin.

Jude Broughan, Ronnie Burrage, and Maxine Montilus, three artists who are participating in the current faculty show, will give an "Artist Talk" for the first half hour. It will be followed by RoBurrage Productions' musical performance.

The show includes the works of:

  • Liz Atz
  • Chris Bors
  • Jude Broughan
  • Ronnie Burrage
  • Michael Capobianco
  • Lizzy De Vita
  • Anthony Hamboussi 
  • Hong Seon Jang
  • Maxine Montilus

This reception is open to the public. 

Further details related to the exhibition are available on the exhibition's event page.
