I've said it before, the Binghamton area has always had a rich heritage for art.  In fact, we have an entire district devoted to showcasing art here in downtown Binghamton, called Artists Row, which also happens to be the location of many of Greater Binghamton's most popular art gallery's.

Viewing art is popular in Binghamton.  If you've ever been to the First Friday Art Walk, which takes place on the first Friday of every month, you know from the crowds this event attracts, that art is alive and well in the Greater Binghamton area.

Travel toward the college campuses and you can meet many more artists. SUNY Broome is inviting the community to come take a look at some wonderful art on Thursday November 17, when they open the Gallery @ SUNY Broome to the public from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The reception will showcase the original work of various Art and Design students.

The exhibit will highlight classical drawings and oil paintings, along with graphic print media and three-dimensional design. The focus is on work by students currently enrolled in courses taught by Professors Patti Evans and Hall Groat and instructors Richard Harrington, Nancy Ryan, Ewelina Anna Zajac-Holdrege and Keith Rosko, along with Chenango Valley High School Fast Forward art teacher Bob Zanot.

The exhibit runs through Saturday, November 19. The gallery is located on the first floor of SUNY Broome's library.
