Beginning on January 9, Chris Manning and Kerri Gaudelli will exhibit their mixed media works in Canterbury's Edward J. Duffy Family Gallery. A reception for the artists will be held on January 12 from 6:30 p.m.–8:00 p.m. The exhibit closes on January 30.
"The exhibitions in Canterbury's Duffy Family Gallery provide our students with the unique opportunity to interact one-on-one with professional artists," says Kim Tester, Chair of the Fine Arts Department. "At each opening reception, the artist is available to discuss his or her techniques and point of view. All students, not just art students, benefit from exposure to a wide-range of media, from painting to drawing to sculpture and everything in between. It's all part of the School's commitment to visual literacy."
Kerri Gaudelli holds a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Studio Art from the University of Connecticut, and a Master's of Fine Art from Western Connecticut State University. Currently, Kerri teaches studio art at Middlesex Community College and works in the Education Department of The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. Her work has been widely exhibited.
Christopher Manning has an MFA from SUNY New Paltz and a BFA from Manhattanville College. Manning is the Exhibitions Coordinator at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, as well as a Professor of Visual Art at Manhattanville College. He has also taught at the College of New Rochelle, and has been a visiting critic at the Wassaic Project and SUNY New Paltz MFA and BFA programs.
The public is invited.
Gallery hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. or by appointment.
