Tompkins Cortland Community College Student Photographs Chosen for Best of SUNY Exhibit

April 19, 2013

Tompkins Cortland Community College will be well represented at the upcoming 2013 Best of SUNY Student Art Exhibition. Students Susan Larkin, Caitlin Londa, and Cynthia Cantu have been honored with selection of their photographs into the exhibit. The exhibit will open in June and be on display through September 18 at the New York State Museum in Albany.

The three Tompkins Cortland pieces selected are all photographs, but with very different subjects and styles. Larkin’s work is a very colorful collection of photos of hands, all done with her iPhone, Londa photographed a classic car at twilight on Main Street in Cortland, and Cantu produced a black and white image of some historical artifacts. Both Cantu and Londa graduated from the Tompkins Cortland photography program in December 2012 and plan to pursue four-year degrees. Larkin is a community member taking individual photography classes at the College.

The exhibit features artwork selected as Best of Show at the fall 2012 and the spring 2013 student art exhibitions at SUNY Plaza. Tompkins Cortland students Kim Burke, Rebecca Shurtleff, Jeff Lower, Christa Saraceni, Dave LoParco, and Joe Glann also had work featured at SUNY Plaza this year. All the art displayed from Tompkins Cortland students was photography, but the exhibit includes a variety of media, including the traditional areas of drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, ceramics, and sculpture as well as digital imaging and mixed media installations.

The 2013 Best of SUNY Student Art Exhibition will include about 50 pieces of art selected by a panel of jurors from the over 300 on display in the fall and spring.
