Work by Purchase Artist Named Best of SUNY

Congratulations to Alexa Eugene ’16 for earning Best of Show in this year’s Best of SUNY art exhibition for her painting, Husbandry.

Every spring, hundreds of student artists submit work for the Best of SUNY Student Art Exhibition. This year, three Purchase seniors majoring in painting and drawing have their work featured in the show.

Alexa Eugene, Taylor Pineiro, and Monique Romney are among the thirty-four artists chosen from across the SUNY system of 64 campuses. The exhibition is on view at the New York State Museum in Albany through October 23, 2016.

Eugene is among three student artists selected as Best of Show, all of whom will receive $1,000 scholarships.

The SUNY student art shows were initiated in 2002 as a platform for the work of SUNY’s most talented student artists to be seen by a wider audience.
