The Kohn-Joseloff Gallery was founded in 1998 through gifts from the Kohn-Joseloff Foundation. The gallery features exhibits from current students and alumni of Cheshire Academy, along with exhibits from celebrated artists in the New Haven and Hartford area.
The Kohn-Joseloff Gallery is a place of continual learning for Cheshire Academy artists, as they attend lectures by area artists in the gallery, examine theoretical perspectives of current exhibits, and practice discussing their own influences during student and faculty art shows.
Karleen Kubat, Director of the Kohn-Joseloff Gallery, curates four local artist exhibits a year in addition to the Art Major show in May by current students. Contact Mrs. Kubat at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-439-7227.
Printmaker Kraig Binkowski will be putting his work on display at the Kohn-Joseloff Gallery at Cheshire Academy throughout the months of November and December.
Binkowski, chief librarian at the Yale Center for British Art, first began making prints 30 years ago. He holds both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts degrees in printmaking. An artist talk and reception is scheduled for 7 pm on Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Gallery, 10 Main St. Members of the public are invited to attend. Binkowski’s prints will be on display from Nov. 4 until Dec. 19.
“Throughout my years of printmaking, I have created imagery that explores the play of light across figures and surfaces,” Binkowski reflected, of his work. “Always concerned with process and the inherent and distinctive qualities of mark-making in etchings and woodcuts, I celebrate the richness of the medium. My woodcuts are recognizable ‘of wood’ and never hide the distinctive beauty of carving into wood.”
