The Joseloff Gallery is proud to announce the upcoming twenty-first annual Alexander A. Goldfarb Student Exhibition and Awards Presentation, opening Wednesday, February 17, 2010 with a public reception from 5-7pm.
As you may know, the Alexander A. Goldfarb Student Exhibition and Awards Presentation is held each year in the Joseloff Gallery. All full-time students of the University of Hartford are invited to submit up to two works of art to be considered for the exhibition. A guest juror – an artist, curator, critic, or other person working in the field of art – is invited to choose the work to be included in the show. Of the works selected for the show, two undergraduate students are chosen to receive the purchase prizes in the amount of $1,000 each. The winning students’ artwork then becomes a part of the Goldfarb Memorial Collection, owned by the Hartford Art School and proudly displayed throughout the University in offices and public spaces.
Clint Jukkala, Yale University assistant professor of painting/printmaking and director of undergraduate studies in art will jury this year’s show. Mr. Jukkala received a B.F.A. in painting from the University of Washington in Seattle in 1995 and an M.F.A. in painting from Yale University in 1998. He is represented by Envoy Gallery in New York, and his work has been included in recent exhibitions at the DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and ZieherSmith Gallery in New York. He has also taught at the University of Connecticut and Quinnipiac University.
