This month, The College at Brockport will feature an art exhibition with works not connected by maker or theme, but by virtue of being part of faculty members' collections. Through March 25, you can check out "Eclectic: From the Private Collections of Department of Art Faculty" at the Tower Fine Arts Center Gallery at The College at Brockport (180 Holley Street). The show includes artwork by a wide range of historical and contemporary artists According to Tim Massey, chair of the Department of Art and curator for the exhibition, artists and art historians alike "observe, appreciate, and collect what strikes them as interesting, beautiful, or important." Through collecting, art faculty have supported other artists, including current or former students, he says.
Admission to the gallery is free. Hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. The gallery will be closed March 12 through March 20, for academic break. There is metered parking available to the side of Tower, and parking passes are available for purchase at the Welcome Center on Commencement Drive. Parking is free on weekdays after 7 p.m. and throughout the weekend. For more information, call 395-2805 or visit brockport.edu/finearts.
