CVA School of Art Student & Emerging Artist Exhibition
JULY 20 – AUGUST 19
Strohl Art Center | Gallo Family Gallery
One of our most popular exhibitions of the summer will be displayed on the second floor of Strohl Art Center in the Gallo Family Gallery. This year each Student / Emerging Artist, who is participating in the seven week summer program at the Chautauqua School of Art, will exhibit one original work created pre-season highlighting their personal style. This exhibition is curated by Judy Barie and Sharon Louden along with the Chautauqua School of Art core faculty.
The Bridge Gallery is situated in Strohl Art Center just between The Gallery Store and the curated exhibitions of the Main Gallery. We offer a selection of rotating works on view and available for acquisition for the duration of the summer season, hand-made by a select and growing roster of extraordinary craftspersons from around the country. You will find smaller works and functional objects in ceramics, glass, and so much more. We are always on the lookout for innovative techniques and exceptional objects to enliven your home and spirit.
