The Cayuga Community College Fulton Campus recently hosted “An Evening of Art and Music” that attracted a few hundred community members to the new campus, 11 River Glen Drive, Fulton.
Following a footprint path, visitors viewed the artistic creations of students from the College and high schools across Oswego County, community members, as well as College employees and alumni. The exhibitions included submissions in a range of media—including photography, paintings, sculpture, ceramics, and drawings.
Four Fulton Campus students received the judges’ choice awards for their submissions. The winners are:
- Janice Chipman of Mexico for “Golden Spring,” digital photography; President’s Choice and $50 gift card
- Gayle Taylor of Phoenix for “Rabbit’s Head Point,” acrylic on canvas; $25 gift card
- Matijay Donzo of Syracuse for “Experiment Shot,” digital photography; $25 gift card
- Jami Keding of Hannibal for “How the Other Half Live,” acrylic on canvas; $25 gift card
The judges were: Daniel P.Larson, College president; Maggie Killoran, associate vice president and Fulton Campus dean; William Lovell, professor and division chair; and Sue Witmer, director of Fulton Campus operations.
“When we first had our art shows on the Broadway Campus, it was wonderful to see our students, alumni, and staff members’ artistic endeavors,” said Earleen DeForest, Fulton Campus staff member who helped organize the event. “We were very pleased how this event turned out at our beautiful new campus, and we would like to continue to do this event every year.”
Visitors also enjoyed light refreshments and music provided by Cayuga Community College students.
The Fulton Campus art show was part of a seven-stop Gallery Hop, organized by the Art Association of Oswego. The event was sponsored by the College Foundation and the Faculty-Student Association.
