O’Keefe Ross Gallery Exhibit Showcases Images of Diverse Landscapes

December 14, 2016

A new exhibit at St. John Fisher College’s Patricia O’Keefe Ross Gallery will showcase a collection of images of diverse landscapes, curated by adjunct faculty member Elizabeth Durand. The exhibition, which opens Monday, Jan. 9, will be on display through Thursday, Feb. 16, at the Gallery, located in the Joseph S. Skalny Welcome Center. An opening reception will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 12.

Artwork by adjunct faculty member Elizabeth Durand.

In addition to Durand’s work, the exhibit will feature artists including g.a. Sheller, Constance Mauro, and Jim Barclay. The body of work, which includes photography, printmaking, and encaustic paintings, among other media, stems from the artists’ travels to Ireland, Iceland, and across the United States.

At Fisher, Durand teaches a course, Drawing Ireland, where students explore Irish literature, film, and art. Students in the course also learn elements of line, form, and expression through their artistic interpretations of the country’s landscapes, cityscapes, and dreamscapes.

Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Libby Pinti at (585) 385-5292 or epinti@sjfc.edu.
