Art and design major presents exhibiton of 'Patterns' reflecting semester in China

From now through Thursday, Sept. 19, Julia Berbling, a senior art and design major, is presenting her project “Patterns in Process” in the Robert C. Turner Gallery (catwalk) on Alfred University’s (AU) campus. Gallery hours are 11:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. weekdays, and noon-4 p.m. Saturdays. 

“Pattern in Process” is an exhibition of works responding to culture through visual language and pattern. Berbling’s work is a result of spending a semester in China after winning the AU Women’s Leadership Research Award.

The Women’s Leadership Center (WLC) received a research gift from Sherry Walton ’80, ’88 and Charlie Joyce which resulted in the Research in Women’s Leadership Endowment, created to provide support for research initiatives at the WLC. The goal of the endowment is to provide students with hands-on experience with the full spectrum of academic research into women’s leadership issues and to provide a signature program for women’s leadership at Alfred University.

The Robert C. Turner Gallery is a student-run contemporary art gallery located in the McGee Pavilion adjacent to Harder Hall. The gallery supports the curricular programs of the School of Art and Design and the professional growth and development of students enrolled in the programs. The gallery serves as a forum for the professional and experimental display of student art work organized by students and faculty under the direction of student leadership.
