Exhibition at 914Works Closes with Black-and-White Reception
914Works, a gallery space of the College of Visual and Performing Arts (VPA), will host a black-and-white reception to mark the closing of “Son of the Genesee,” an exhibition of black-and-white paintings by Stefan Zoller G’16, on Thursday, Sept. 4, from 6-8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.
Patrons are encouraged to wear black and white to the reception. Those who do may enter a free giveaway for “Rectangle Enthroned,” a 2014 lithograph by Zoller.
Zoller is a graduate painting student in VPA’s Department of Art. “Son of the Genesee” pays homage to the Genesee Valley of Western New York, where he was born and raised, and where he first painted.
Introduced to art by an older brother, Zoller took college art courses while still in high school. After receiving a bachelor of arts degree in studio art from Houghton College in 2008, he moved to Corning, N.Y., to work with renowned portrait painter Thomas S. Buechner. During two years studying representational painting with Buechner, Zoller also maintained a home studio practice, painting in the non-representational vein he had developed during his undergraduate experience.
Zoller recently had a solo exhibition at VPA’s Michael Sickler Gallery. His recent group exhibitions include the 64th Rochester Finger-Lakes Exhibition at Memorial Art Gallery, Rochester, N.Y.; the “Southern Tier Biennial” at Olean Public Library, Olean, N.Y.; and “Zoller & Ryder” at Atrium Gallery, Corning.
