Fine Art students at Slippery Rock University of PA  created a student run  art gallery on campus  this year. . When I learned about this adventure, I wanted to support it  with a gift to help support future  exhibitions.

Today, I learned about a special gift donation  of

Hand crafted pottery by Anthony DeRosa.

He also wanted to help art students raise funds.   He gifted some of his stunning pottery to the organization to be used to help this become a reality in some way.  I received one of the mugs made by Anthony in the mail today.  I am enjoying my morning coffee which is in one of Anthony’s beautiful mugs. What an amazing piece of art it is – and it will be treasured by me for many years to come.

I hope other graduates of the SRU Art programs will join in  to support the new art gallery and help  art students in a variety of ways in the future.  Congratulations to SGA and the creation of a Student Gallery at Slippery Rock University of PA.  I know that the sky is the limit for these current art students. And, this new gallery provides training that would not be possible without it.

 

I remember the excitement of being involved in art classes & exhibitions as a former BFA major at SRU.  The completion of my degree opened door for me that were remarkable.  My academic and professional life provided exhibition and teaching experiences across  the US and in a number of other countries over the ensuing years.

This new student-run gallery is a ground-breaking idea and I was glad to know about the project. I personally know the value of student learning and  how to do the business of making art and getting work out before the public through exhibitions. This new gallery is a key factor in the future success of the students.

If you would like to be a donor, no matter the amount, I know the students would be so grateful for your help.  You can get more information on the websites I have given above.

  1. Patty, thank you for sharing this blog post about a student run gallery project. I graduated with 2 degrees from this university. Two of my children went to SRU, and I have a great-granddaughter there currently. I like to recognize positive accomplishments of students when I hear about them.
