Art Galleries and Art Conference

Art Gallery

Two professional art galleries on campus, the Martin-Mullen Art Gallery and the Project Space Gallery, along with our new Open Space Gallery, host a variety of exhibitions. Students may submit work in the Annual Juried Student Art Exhibition and may also apply for solo or group shows in the Project Space Gallery and Open Space Gallery throughout the year. The college’s student-run literary magazine, Art and Scope, also offers opportunities for students to publish their artwork.

Each year, the Art Department hosts an art conference to showcase the artistic and scholastic activities of the members of the SUNY Oneonta Art Department and/or guests within the School of Liberal Arts and Business during the Art Week.

The 2021 conference featured presentations from the Art History faculty in the Art Department, a guest artist and undergraduate students. Topics included colonial photography, graphic design, post-war abstraction, public art during the pandemic, children’s cartoons, contemporary art exhibition and 19th-century European art.

Internships

The SUNY Oneonta Art Department’s internship program offers opportunities to earn college credit while working on-site in a professional setting. Internship experiences often become a factor in locating employment upon graduation.

Qualified juniors and seniors can earn from 1 to 15 credits by working at a business or institution related to their field of interest. During an internship, students gain first-hand experience in the day-to-day operations of businesses, corporations, galleries, or schools.

Special Talent Application

If you’d like to have your art talent considered during the admissions process, you may submit a special talent application as a supplement to your regular application.

Adrianna Newell Portrait
Students
Before even graduating from college, SUNY Oneonta senior Adrianna Newell got an opportunity many aspiring photographers can only dream of. In April 2022, a photo editor from The New York Times came across her work and emailed her to offer a freelance assignment photographing Danny Roberts from MTV’s “The Real World.” She said, “Yes!” and has since completed eight additional assignments for The Times.

My plan is to work as an artist for a while and have that experience, and then get my teaching certification and be an art teacher. My dream would be to open my own school someday and give kids the chance to have more fine arts training.
