Art students open exhibit during Hornell St. Patrick’s Day events
3/14/12

The Space and Place class of the Sculpture/Dimensional Studies Division at Alfred University will be a part of this year’s City of Hornell St. Patrick’s Day festivities.

Students in the class have been working in the Ponderosa Building in downtown Hornell, and their work will be featured in the building’s newly renovated arts and community center as part of the Nothing (Extra) Ordinary Show.

The Nothing (Extra) Ordinary Show is an exhibit inspired by explorations of Hornell into the city’s context. The exhibit will feature the work of AU students including Kaitlyn Boccardo, Morrisville, Pa.; Nate Gibson, Crystal Lake, Ill.; Ben Hoagland, Sewanee, Tenn.; Linsey Laserte, Westminster, Mass.; Peter Leone, Hamilton; Ethan Martin, Lititz, Pa.; Jessie Simmons, Erie, Pa; and Kate Truini, Roxbury, Conn.

Brett Hunter, associate professor of sculpture, teaches the Space and Place class.

The exhibit will open at noon, immediately following the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which steps off at 11 a.m.

The Hornell Area Transport Bus will make extra runs on the 17th to facilitate transportation to the exhibition. Buses will pick-up at the bus shelter on Main Street in Alfred at approximately 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 1:30 p.m., and drop off at the Ponderosa Building. Buses will leave the Ponderosa Space at noon, 1 and 4:30 p.m. to return to Alfred.
