Craft Art Exhibition Acquisitions 1988-1998
Sylvia L. Rosen Gallery for Fine Art in Craft Media
On View Thursday, June 24–Sunday, October 24, 1999
Gallery space was expanded, renovated, and dedicated for changing exhibitions of craft art from the collection and on loan in the Sylvia L. Rosen Gallery for Fine Art in Craft Media in the Burchfield Penney’s former galleries in Rockwell Hall on the Buffalo State College campus. This exhibition was the first in a newly renovated space dedicated to craft art, and it featured works acquired in biennial purchase awards primarily funded by the Sylvia L. Rosen Endowment, and augmented by awards made possible by Graphic Controls, Inc. and The Floristry. Works by Cynthia Printup-Harms, Bill Stewart and Robert Wood, among others, demonstrated the significant growth of the Burchfield Penney’s craft art collection.
