  • Oxford’s first exhibit of  2014 features two artists who have recently garnered much national attention.  Patricia Tribastone and Ray Hassard have both attained the Pastel Society of America’s designation as Master Pastelist, although both also paint in oil.  In January, 2010, Rochester’s Tribastone was the focus of the cover article of American Artist, and she was again featured in the fall of 2011 in American Artist’s “Guide to Painting Flowers.”  In 2013, she was awarded first place (oil and acrylic category) at the Hilton Head National Biennial Exhibition and received the Diane Bernhard Gold Medal award at the Pastel Society of America’s annual exhibition. She appears currently in the January/February (2014) issue of Pastel Journal.  In 2013, Cincinnati artist Ray Hassard was profiled in both Plein Air magazine and American Art Collector.  He received the Gold Medal award in Pastel Journal’s “Top 100 Paintings in Pastel for 2013,” and he will be featured in Pastel Journal’s March/April 2014 edition.  The Oxford Gallery is located in the Roosevelt Apartment Building at the corner of Oxford Street and Park Avenue in Rochester.  Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 12:00 Noon to 5:00 P.M., and Saturday, 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.  Admission to all events at the Oxford Gallery is free.  For information, please call 585-271-5885.  The exhibition of recent paintings by Patricia Tribastone and Ray Hassard begins Saturday, January 25 and continues through Saturday, March 1.  An Artists’ Reception will be held Saturday, February 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 PM.  The Reception is open to the public.
