Price-Meader, 28, said he took seven years off from his college education for personal and financial reasons. As he prepares applications for graduate school, he said, being part of an international exhibition is an exciting development.
The pieces submitted by Hartwick students were completed over the past two-and-a-half years under the tutelage of resident artists and alumni Annie Gohde ‘01, Kevin Gray ‘01 and Kreisher, a media release said.
The exhibition also reflects a cultural and educational exchange.
Nine years ago, Kreisher began a sabbatical from teaching at Hartwick by going to New Zealand for a month, during which she assisted Rita Dibert, head of photography at the Universal College of Learning Quay School of Art, in teaching a course in alternative processes.
For a decade, Dibert has been running the international “Alternatives Relocated” exhibition with her students acting as jurors for the show. Dibert taught photography and printmaking at Hartwick College in the 1970s, after which she taught in Charlotte, N.C., before joining the Quay School of Art in Whanganui.
The majority of the work by Hartwick students will be donated to the Collection at the Quay School, where it will be viewed on an ongoing basis by students and other audiences, the release said. Kreisher said an “Alternative” show previously was exhibited at Hartwick.
“It’s a really good culture exchange,” she said.
