Welcome to the 27th Annual Student Exhibition! For over 89 years the 92Y Art Center has provided students of all ages and all levels of accomplishment with a superior educational experience whether in art appreciation, fine art, ceramics or jewelry and metalsmithing. As part of this mission, the Art Center provides training that helps to build technical skills as well as an informed appreciation of the arts. What is paramount is the art-making process: the self-fulfillment, intellectual engagement, challenge and fun that the practice of studio art can provide. However, the exhibition of one’s work can be an important part of this process. It provides a forum for contemplation, comparison and critique, along with the simple joy of sharing one’s accomplishments. This annual exhibition of work by adult students enrolled in 92Y’s studio art classes celebrates the talents of individual students, the devotion of the faculty to the process of teaching and the 92Y community of artists.
The numerous entries received always require us to limit the number of objects exhibited in the gallery. We would like to sincerely thank Cindy Trope, Associate Curator at Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, for serving as the guest juror of this year’s exhibition. As part of her duties, she has selected her favorite work from each of the following categories—oil painting, drawing, collage, watercolor, ceramics and jewelry.
In addition, the Art Center would like to thank Gilda Block for her continued generous support of this annual student exhibition.
