B.F.A. Painting and Drawing Students Exhibit at Annual Open Studios

Pratt’s annual B.F.A. Painting and Drawing Open Studios were held on May 14 in East and Main Halls on Pratt’s Brooklyn campus. This year’s "Select Exhibition" on display from May 14–17 in East Hall Gallery was curated by George Adams, owner and director of George Adams Gallery in New York.

For the first time, this year’s B.F.A. Painting and Drawing Open Studios included the work of junior-year students. “These students will inherit what we started,” said recent graduate Nick Van Zanten (B.F.A. '11), co-president of the Pratt Painting Club. “We have worked hard to make this event worthy of the education Pratt has given us.”

This year’s Open Studios were co-sponsored by the Painting Club and the Drawing Club of Pratt, two student organizations formed earlier this year under the advisement of Fine Arts Adjunct Associate Professors Greg Drasler and Nanette Carter.

I liked Nick Van Zanten's piece but would like to see more work. I studied with Pratt In Venice (1987) and love seeing what is happening in the painting dept.
