 The Cohen Gallery will present a two-person exhibition of prints, books and other digital delights featuring work by Alfred University alumnus Mykola Haleta ’17 and Jamin Kuhn beginning March 5. The exhibition will be on view at the Gallery, located at 55 N. Main St., Alfred, through April 3, and a public reception for the artists will be held Thursday, March 5, from 5 to 8pm.

Haleta received a BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art, where he studied graphic design, and an MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts from The New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He is an educator, optical artist, textile designer, graphic designer, and noise/sound artist. His audio compositions and performance projects have been performed and presented nationally and internationally, and he is currently an assistant professor in the Digital Media and Animation Department at Alfred State College.

Kuhn received an MFA in Digital Arts and Drawing from Washington State University and his BFA from Eastern Washington University. He is an educator and artist currently living and working in Alfred, serving as assistant professor in the Digital Media & Animation Department at Alfred State College. His work predominantly explores found objects, spaces, and leftovers, along with the ongoing possibility that these discoveries can re-determine and create new shifts in direction, meaning, and process-orientation. Using digital imaging and fabrication techniques paired with traditional drawing mediums, he works toward bringing new life to moments and encounters experienced in solitude.

 The Cohen Gallery seeks to create opportunities for Alfred University alumni, students, and faculty to engage in the professional activities of curating and organizing art exhibitions from the ground up, thus providing valuable experience in the business aspects of art. The Gallery exhibits the work of alumni, faculty, local and visiting artists and provides Alfred University students with hands-on experience in arts administration, community development, marketing and public relations, design, and management. Students assist in all facets of the exhibitions, from designing the space to preparing promotional materials and acting as docents during the shows

 Gallery open hours: Tuesday – Friday 11am-5pm, Thursday till 7pm and weekend hours 12-4pm.
