Woman in deep concentration

(SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Oct. 19, 10) “Classroom Visions,” an exhibit of photographs portraying images from the work of the Master of Arts in Teaching program, will be on view beginning Wednesday, Nov. 10, at the Central Arts Gallery, 6333 Rte. 298, East Syracuse, through Feb. 10, 2011. The photos were taken during a six-year period by founding M.A.T. faculty member Dr. Fernand Brunschwig, and were first on display last summer at the college’s Brooklyn Unit. The photos are of students and teachers at work in the New York City schools. The teachers are all current students or graduates of the M.A.T. program.

The opening reception is set for Nov. 10, 5:30-7 p.m. Central New York Center Dean Nikki Shrimpton will be present at this event, which is sponsored by the Office of Alumni and Student Relations. There is no fee to attend and refreshments will be served.
