SUNY Oswego art exhibit remembers late art professor

Oswego, N.Y. — SUNY Oswego held an art exhibit in Tyler Hall to remember long-time Oswego Professor Al Bremmer. 

There was a lot of hard work that took place to get the Tyler Hall Art Gallery ready for this event. Planning Started in August, said Lowell Hutcheson, director of arts programming at SUNY Oswego. 

“So we spent about a day bringing the artwork into the space. Several days kind of just getting the layout and where we wanted to put the pieces and then several days for the actual installation so hanging of the art work,” Hutcheson said. “There is quite a bit that goes into preparing the space as well.” 

There was a lot of artwork that was produced by Bremmer. Hutcheson said that Bremmer produced abstract art. 

“If you come to the event you’ll see it is a mixture of quite a few styles,” Hutcheson said. “There’s quite a few 3D pieces. There are also some foil paintings, some acrylic paintings you’ll see as well as with drawings. So it is a little bit of a mix with everything and the beauty of a retrospective.”

So far the event has been a great success on the SUNY Oswego campus.

“Our opening night there were about over 100 people, 134 precisely, and there have been more people cycling in during our open hours,” said Sarah Martin, SUNY Oswego Student and Tyler Art Gallery employee. 

This event will be held until Oct. 9. The Tyler Hall Art Gallery will be open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m..
