Continuing the Artists of Excellence series, “Then and Now: Thrown Pottery over 35 years by Jacqui Doyle Schneider” is now on display through January 28, 2017.
The pottery in this show features the best of Jacqui Doyle Schneider’s works over a period that is more than half of her lifetime. It is truly a retrospective of her work, progressing from an investigation of shape and the painterly mark toward a more textural and sculptural deconstruction of the traditional vessel appearance.
Wheel-thrown pottery pieces reflect Doyle Schneider’s interest in the overlap between nature, wildlife, and human forms, playfully depicted within the positive and negative spaces of the carved ceramic vessels. Both sculptural and utilitarian, her work demonstrates a complete artist in creativity of each vessel, use of color, and exquisite design.
After graduating from SUNY Oswego with a BA in Art, Doyle Schneider received an apprenticeship at Earthworks in NYC where she produced production pottery and taught classes in throwing on the wheel. Eventually, she moved to the Hudson Valley, had three children, and went on to receive a teaching certification and an MA in Art from SUNY New Paltz. Subsequently, she became a high school art teacher at Valley Central High School where, for the past 20 years, she has specialized in teaching Advanced Ceramics.
A closing reception will take place on January 28, 2017 from 4 to 6:30pm as part of Newburgh Last Saturdays #NBLS.
The Artists of Excellence series spotlights highly talented regional artists. Artworks are on view in four glass vitrine cases located in the Foyer of the Mindy Ross Gallery. The Foyer is actually the area just outside the Mindy Ross Gallery inside the eastern end of Kaplan Hall. It is a wonderful setting afforded with natural light and multi-directional viewing of the pieces.
Kaplan Hall is located at the corner of Grand and First Streets (GPS: 73 First St) on the Newburgh campus of SUNY Orange. Viewing hours are Monday through Thursday 8am to 8pm, and 8am to 5pm on Friday through December 16. From January 3 through January 13, the hours are Monday through Friday 8am to 4pm. After being closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the hours are Monday through Thursday 8am to 8pm, and 8am to 5pm on Friday through January 28.
The exhibit is free and open to the public and presented by Cultural Affairs to which questions may be directed: (845)341-4891 and email@example.com.

Orange Hall Gallery (MDTN) and Mindy Ross Gallery, Kaplan Hall (NBG)
Each year since 2012, the Orange County Human Rights Commission collaborates with the Orange County Arts Council and SUNY Orange Cultural Affairs to present An Artist’s Response to Human Rights, an art exhibit celebrating the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Declaration was the first international recognition that all human beings have fundamental rights and freedoms. This exhibit offers juniors and seniors in Orange County high schools the opportunity of expressing their feelings about the importance of human rights in today’s world by depicting artworks and writing poems or essays about topics related to the 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Visual and literary submissions were made by 151 students from twelve high schools. The students’ works are their interpretations of the 30 Articles. The schools represented in the 2016 exhibit are Cornwall Central High School, Middletown High School, Minisink Valley High School, Monroe Woodbury High School, Pine Bush High School, Port Jervis High School, Washingtonville High School, Storm King School, John S. Burke Catholic High School, BOCES, Warwick High School, and James I. O’Neill High School.
“This year’s Human Rights Art Exhibit again reflects the understanding and commitment of many of our Orange County high school students to the principles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights established by the General Assembly of the United Nations 68 years ago on December 10, 1948. The Orange County Human Rights Commission takes much pleasure in the collaborative efforts of SUNY Orange, the Orange County Arts Council along with the Commission, for providing a platform for students to enhance their appreciation of human rights,” states Orange County Human Rights Commission Chairman Fred Cook.
The exhibits can be viewed from December 1 through 18 at Orange Hall Gallery, SUNY Orange Middletown campus and through 16 at the Mindy Ross Gallery, SUNY Orange Newburgh campus with receptions scheduled on Sunday, December 4 from 1 to 3pm and Tuesday, December 6 from 6 to 8pm, respectively.
