AU studio art professor exhibits new paintings and drawings at Cohen Center

Alfred University’s Cohen Gallery will showcase an exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Dale Inglett, assistant professor of studio art, beginning Friday, Feb. 22 with an opening reception at 5 p.m. The event is open to the public; admission is free. The exhibit runs through March 22.

The abstract works in the show represent a new direction for Inglett, with contrasting smeared, scraped, and fluid surfaces with flat geometric shapes. Inglett’s works, which have previously been informed by figuration, now suggest elusive and shifting forms, atmospheric effects, and perceptual phenomena.

Inglett earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in studio art from Augusta State University (now George Regents University). He then continued his education to receive a master of fine arts degree in studio art from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. He has served in his current position at Alfred University since 2007.

His work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the United States. In addition, he has been the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including a Strategic Opportunity Stipend from the New York Foundation for the Arts.

The Cohen Center for the Arts Gallery, located at 55 N. Main St., Alfred, is open Tuesdays 9 a.m.-noon, Wednesdays noon-7 p.m., and Thursdays 2-7 p.m., or by appointment. The Center was created through a gift from Michele and Martin Cohen, parents of Adam Cohen, AU Class of 2003.
