Professor Kegler Artwork Exhibited at Burchfield Penney Art Center
Special Assistant to the President
Daemen Director and Professor of Graphic Design, Kevin Kegler, is among 55 artists opening an exhibition of 75 pieces of artwork at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo. Professor Keglers work will be part of the Centers 25th anniversary celebration of the Art in Craft Media exhibition that began on Saturday, October 26th and will run through January 19th.
According to a review in the October 17th issue of Gusto in the Buffalo News, the show began, with funding and a mandate from the craft art champion Sylvia Rosen, as a way to elevate the work Rosen and her fellow artists were doing in media not typically seen in museums and galleries. The review goes on to say that twenty-five years later, the art world has so thoroughly changed that wood, glass and fiber on museum walls and in galleries is commonplace
In the Gusto review of Professor Keglers feature piece, House of Wish Fulfillment, the article states that Kegler has produced a sculpture from craft materials that tries to provoke thoughts about what home is and how that concept of home can be transitory.
Daemen College is proud that Burchfield Penny Art Center has recognized the outstanding work of one of Daemens finest, and one who continues to climb the ranks of Western New Yorks most impressive artists.
Professor Keglers paintings, sculpture and constructions have been exhibited in many regional galleries and museums including the Burchfield Penny Art Center, The Albright Knox Art Gallery, Hallwalls, CEPA, Meibohm Gallery, Indigo and Art Dialogue. In addition he has exhibited in Berlin, the KK Outlet Gallery in London and with "Interactive Currents" SCUT Guangzhou, China.
Kegler received his BA from Buffalo State College and his MA from the University of Buffalo. In addition to graphic design, Professor Kegler has taught a graduate level Arts Administration course at Daemen College and has also taught courses in London, England and Progresso Dos, Dominican Republic.
