On Friday, October 12, the HUB-Robeson Galleries at Penn State hosted a public reception for their three fall exhibits. Students and other members of the State College community were given the chance to mingle with artists while taking in a variety of art.
The Robeson Gallery saw over 230 visitors during the reception for Decade 3: 1982-2012, 30 Years of State College Area School District Alumni Art. With 62 pieces by 55 artists, the exhibit showcases a large collection of artistic talent from State High alums who are working professionally in art careers. The pieces on display include paintings, sculptures, photographs, graphic design and performance art. Many of the show's artists attended the reception, filling the night with artistic commentary and a high amount of support for the local art community.
The reception also celebrated The Reflection Series by New York artist Julie Tremblay, which is on display in the HUB Gallery. Tremblay's nine life-sized figurative sculptures, which are made of recycled tin plated steel, are a reflection on humanity and our contemporary society. Gallery visitors left Tremblay's show in awe of her unique and profound artistic technique.
Right next to the HUB Gallery is Art Alley, which is currently displaying Politics as Usual by Kofi Ofori. The show has sparked a variety of visitor reactions with its themes of corruption, deception, ignorance and a modern moral poverty.
Decade 3 will be in the Robeson Gallery until November 18, 2012.
Julie Tremblay's The Reflection Series will be in the HUB Gallery until December 9, 2012.
Kofi Ofori's Politics as Usual will be in the HUB-Robeson Center's Art Alley until December 2, 2012.
