Council for the Arts

The Council for the Arts is a group of volunteers from the College and the surrounding communities that foster and encourage an appreciation and enjoyment of the fine and performing arts. The council's ultimate goal is to develop a lasting love for the arts in SJC students and in the larger community, which will encourage their active involvement either as participants or as informed spectators.

Semester Art Shows


Curated by Michael Miller

Oct. 30 to Nov. 27, 2019

Featured artists:
Ai Campbell
Garrett Klein
Elizabeth Meggs
Robert Szot

The four artists in this show have a common characteristic: they all seek to communicate ideas through their painting without making reference to recognizable objects or events. Beyond this shared commitment to non-representational painting, each artist employs a highly distinctive and sophisticated visual language — a kind of “wordless eloquence” — in order to convey their personal, artistic, philosophical or even metaphysical concerns.

Alumni Room Gallery, Tuohy Hall
245 Clinton Avenue, Brooklyn, N.Y.

Gallery hours:
Wednesdays, 6 to 8 p.m., and Saturdays, 1 to 3 p.m.
