Join the Arts Center for a sparkling toast and artist talk with Gina Occhiogrosso, whose exhibition “Surfacing” is on display in our Main Gallery until March 11.

Comprising paintings, assemblages, sketchbooks, and video, “Surfacing,” spans the past five years and touches upon the empowerment of the feminine in contemporary painting, the boundaries of craft and fine art, the pandemic, job loss, and other themes.

She received her BFA in Painting at Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, and her MFA in Painting at The State University of New York at Buffalo.
