Join us for a reception in the Wagner College Gallery opening an exhibition of watercolors by Staten Island artist Colman Rutkin, titled “Myths and Tales.” The exhibition runs from Nov. 8 until Jan. 31. Both the reception and the exhibition are free, and the public is invited.
The Wagner College Gallery is located in the Union Building on the Wagner campus, 631 Howard Ave., Staten Island. The gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours on Thursday until 9 p.m.
Colman Rutkin has lived on Staten Island for more than 30 years since moving here from Manhattan. This is his second solo show; the first, held in 2013 at the Staten Island Museum, was titled “A Visual Journey” and included oil paintings, prints and watercolors.
The Wagner College Gallery exhibition includes recent work by Rutkin in which he continues his exploration of myth, imaginative narratives and color.
Rutkin earned his bachelor’s degree in humanities from the University of South Florida, and his master of fine arts degree in photography and printmaking from Florida State University. He is currently a partner in the Four Hands Design Studio.
