Colacino Art Gallery

Established through the generous support of Margaret Colacino, artist and art educator, the Colacino Gallery serves as a cultural and educational resource for Nazareth students as well as the greater Rochester community. Its goal is to complement the liberal arts by fostering critical thinking, intellectual diversity, visual literacy, and aesthetic values. In addition to exhibitions generated in-house, artists are invited to submit proposals for solo or small group shows to the Chair of The Art Department, Mr. Ron Netsky.

The Colacino Gallery is located in the Art Department wing of the Arts Center complex on the second floor.

2014-2015 Season


Humanity: Themes and Impressions
Featuring new works by printmakers Kelly Clancy, Dale Klein, and Paolo Marino

January 23 - February 28, 2015
Reception: Friday, January 23, 2015; 5 - 7 PM
Printmakers Exhibit

Nazareth College's Art Department is pleased to present Humanity: Themes and Impressions, featuring new works by printmakers Kelly Clancy, Dale Klein, and Paolo Marino, in the Colacino Gallery at Nazareth College Arts Center Friday, January 23-Saturday, February 28, 2015, with an opening reception Friday, January 23, from 5-7 p.m. All three printmakers have participated in the prestigious Rochester Finger Lakes exhibition at the Memorial Art Gallery, and all are former students of Nazareth College Art Department chair and printmaker, Ron Netsky. “All three are extraordinary printmakers,” Netsky said of the artists. “Printmaking is unusual because it’s not a direct art form like painting. All three of these artists have to go through the elaborate process of creating plates before they can print from them and see the final products. Dale, Paolo and Kelly have all found highly individual ways to do this, putting their own stamp on the process and coming up with unique imagery. A great deal of thought must go into concepts and how to get them across in prints. I believe all three of them have found a wonderful marriage of medium and message.”
