NYC-based Artist and Printmaker Miguel Aragón is Juror
SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Schick Art Gallery will present the 2019 Juried Skidmore Student Exhibition, a popular exhibit of works in all media celebrating the imagination and skill of Skidmore College art students, Feb. 5 to March 5. An opening reception will be held 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 5.
Each year, students submit works in a range of materials, including prints, photographs, sculpture, graphic design, painting, drawing, animation, fibers, jewelry and ceramics. From an average of 250 entries, a guest juror typically chooses 60 to 75 works for exhibition, and 10 outstanding works for special awards. Awards and gift certificates totaling more than $1,000 are funded through donations by friends of the gallery, campus organizations and generous community benefactors, including the Adirondack Trust Company, Soave Faire Art Supply and Allerdice Building Supply.
This year’s juror is Miguel Aragón, assistant professor of printmaking at the City University of New York in Staten Island. Originally from Juarez, Mexico, Aragón explores subjects of memory, perception and violence in his artwork. He has exhibited his work extensively, and numerous pieces are held in private and public collections, including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago.
The Schick Art Gallery is located in the Saisselin Art Building at Skidmore College. Gallery hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 12 to 4 p.m. For more information, please visit This PAGE.
