The Studio San Giuseppe Art Gallery, now in its 51st year, at the College of Mount St. Joseph is honored to announce the opening of the exhibition Selections 2013 (November 10 - December 6, 2013).  A gala reception will be held in the SSG Art Gallery on Sunday, November 10, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. with a special Recognition Ceremony beginning at 1:00 p.m. in the College Theatre.  The public is cordially invited to view the exhibition, meet many of the student-artists and their teachers, and enjoy the festivities of the day.  Selections 2013 is the sixteenth, and the regions longest continuously running, biennial exhibition of art works created by talented regional high school students as selected by their equally dedicated art teachers. 

Aaron Betsky, director of the Cincinnati Art Museum, will be the featured speaker for the Selections Recognition Ceremony on Sunday, November 10, at 1 p.m. in the College Theatre.  Prior to being named CAM’s director in 2006, Betsky served as director (2001-2006) of the Netherlands Architecture Institute in Rotterdam.  Although born in Montana, he grew up in the Netherlands.  He returned to the U.S. to attend Yale University and graduated with a B.A. in History (1979) and an M.Arch (1983), then taught at Cal Poly Ponoma and at UC from 1983-85, and he worked as a designer for Frank Gehry.  From 1995-2001 Betsky was Curator of Architecture, Design and Digital Products at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art before moving back to the Netherlands.  He is a frequent critic, curator, educator, lecturer and writer on architecture and design, having authored or co-authored numerous books, including At Home in Sprawl: Selected Essays on Architecture (RMIT University Press, 2011).  In 2008 Betsky was named director of the 11th Exhibition of the Venice Biennale of Architecture.

Tri-State art teachers were invited to submit two artworks each, in any media, that were recently produced in their classes and were representative of the quality of their art programs.  This exhibition, highlighting these artworks, is a continuing commitment by the College of Mount St. Joseph to recognize and support the artistic endeavors of young people in our community, and to salute the excellent art teachers and art programs in area schools.  Student-artists will represent 45 regional high schools.
