Review of the Art Exhibit by Cui Fei in the Rosenberg Gallery at Hofstra University.
Calkins Hall saw the opening of the 2011 Student Art Show on Wednesday during common hour. The exhibit showcased pieces from many different mediums: from photography to magazine layout, sculpture to oil on canvas. The wide range of artistic talent was put on display and several awards were given out from within Hofstra and by an outside juror.
To be honest, I had never heard of Amy Hempel before I attended her reading. What I found today was an author who writes refreshingly unique prose.
February 3 saw the opening of the newest exhibition at Hofstra University Museum’s Emily Lowe Gallery. Departing Art in America, the new set of paintings deals mainly with apartheid era South Africa.
Last Friday night, January 28, the music department put on its opening night show of the opera “Don Giovanni.” Hofstra students arrived in style; many girls wore dresses and guys sported ties. By the time the soft music began to play, signaling to the audience the start of the show, Adams Playhouse was completely packed. An overwhelming feeling of support for the arts was almost tangible
There have certainly been a few oddities at the Museum of Modern Art in the past, but perhaps none as unique as Marina Abromowic’s latest exhibition, The Artist is Present.
The “Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstractions” exhibition is the natural world in its most basic elements. In more than 130 paintings and drawings at the Whitney Museum of American Art, O’Keeffe is celebrated for her distortions of landscapes, flowers, bones and realistic objects that focus on her experience with people and places.
