Students, faculty, alumni participate in Hornell Art Walk Saturday

Alfred University students, faculty, and alumni, including students in the School of Art and Design’s Space and Place class, will participate in the Hornell Art Walk on Saturday, May 4 from 5-9 p.m. at locations throughout downtown Hornell. The event is free to attend and open to the public.

The Hornell Art Walk is a collaboration between the Space and Place class of the Sculptural/Dimensional Studies Division and other Hornell area artists and organizations. Beginning at the Hornell Community Arts Center and ending at the Broadway Mall, the Art Walk features site-specific installations, exhibitions, and open studios by 23 artists at 18 different locations.

As part of the event, the Space and Place class will present “We Are Here,” an exhibition of information and documentation exploring the process of creating site-specific works. The class has been working in the Hornell Community Arts Center this semester. “We Are Here” features projects by students Teresa Andreno, Jessica Clecherty, Becca Flis, Kyrie Gentilcore, Tina Picente, Ariel Rollins-Cohen, Gavin Tougher, Julie Verdone, Lisa Wolfgang, Julie Slattery, Linsey Laserte, and Ethan Martin.

Also included in the Art Walk is “Faculties of Solace,” a sculptural exhibition featuring new work by alumni Chris Taylor ’12, Mahlon Huston ’11, and Shawn Murrey ’04 curated by Ian McMahon. “Faculties of Solace” will be on display at the Belfry in Hornell.

The Hornell Art Walk also includes work by AU faculty members Kevin Wixted, professor of painting; Angie To, association professor, Foundation Program; Dale Inglett, assistant professor of art; Lee Delegard, adjunct instructor, Foundation Program; Stephanie McMahon, associate professor of painting; and students Virginia Hutchinson, Stephanie Giera, and Aubrey Fry.

Maps of all locations will be available at the Community Arts Center and other locations on the Art Walk trail. A Hornell Area Transit bus will shuttle between the Community Art Center and the Belfry artist-run exhibition space every 30 minutes throughout the evening.
