Lecturer in Art
Mason Hurley joins Hamilton as a lecturer in art, teaching sculpture and drawing. His work in sculpture focuses on the relationship of space and time through the use of craftsmanship and meditative, repetitive movements. His current focus is the complex relationship between compound curves and planar stock building materials.
Hurley received his B.F.A. in painting and sculpture from Plattsburgh State University (N.Y). and his M.F.A. in studio arts from University of Maryland in College Park.
He also has many years of experience working on museum exhibition installation teams, including at the Wellin Museum of Art at Hamilton.
