Marion Art Gallery to host student exhibition

The Cathy and Jesse Marion Art Gallery will feature student works with a senior show titled “Taking Off” from Dec. 2 to 9.

The exhibition highlights the best works by five graduating seniors in the Department of Visual Arts and New Media including Dylan Scacchetti, Alexandro Galiber, Kaitlin Padlo, Kara Koehler and Victoria DePalma.

The exhibition opens Friday, Dec. 2 with a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. The reception and exhibition are free.

  • Mr. Scacchetti is exhibiting an animation called “The Georgia Express” about mortality and grief in a story about a boy’s unlikely meeting on a train.
  • Mr. Galiber is exhibiting two animations, “Thief vs Thief” and “Off the Wall.” “Thief” is a cat-and-mouse narrative about two thieves vying for the same artifact in a museum. “Off the Wall” is about a boy sent to his room after drawing on the wall who imagines “a great hellish call-to-arms of his toys.”
  • Ms. Padlo is exhibiting illustrations for a story called “Rocobones” in which she turns the Rococo art movement on its head by substituting skeletons for lavishly dressed figures, spiders for dogs, etc.
  • Ms. Koehler will exhibit six large non-objective paintings.
  • Ms. DePalma’s installation of 1,000 porcelain roses is about the idea of a rose as signifier to certain psychological states associated with trauma.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Thursday noon to 4 p.m., Friday and Saturday noon to 6 p.m., and Sunday noon to 4 p.m. The gallery is located on the main level of Rockefeller Arts Center.
