Visual Art Resources
Digital Arts has been designed to accommodate courses in a variety of electronic art topics, including digital imaging, web-design, 3D graphics, animation, robotic art, programming, interactive art, video, and sound.
Drawing and Painting have been a source of communication and personal expression for over 300 centuries, and persist today as an integral component to any studio practice. Union students learn fundamental principles of drawing and painting and are encouraged to develop a personal body of work. Our newly renovated Feigenbaum Center for Visual Arts features a 1600 sq ft Drawing studio, a 2-room Painting studio, Individual Studios for advanced students, and our own Stretcher and Supply Room.
Photography at Union aims to provide the necessary resources and training in order to excel those students involved in the art. Various works are displayed throughout the year and range from student portfolios to classic venues.
Coupled with its long history and rich tradition, printmaking plays an equally rewarding role in contemporary art. Today’s printmaker is experimenting with photo processes and digital processes as well as maintaining the more traditional processes. Unconventional methods such as polymer photogravure and ink jet digital prints are becoming as vital as the classical procedures of intaglio, relief and lithography. My vision for the Union College printmaking program is to incorporate these newer methods of working into the visual art curriculum in a substantial way as well as to bolster the traditional offerings.
The Mandeville Gallery holds exhibitions of national and international artists with a focus on interdisciplinary teaching and is located on the second floor of the Nott Memorial in the center of the Union College Campus.
ARTstor is a digital library of approximately 550,000 images in the areas of art, architecture, humanities, and social sciences with a set of tools to view, present, and manage images for research and pedagogical purposes. It is available to Union College students and staff as a free service.
