The Gears Are in Motion by Jeff Leavitt
755 Library Rd.
Oct 4, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Frontispace is pleased to announce an exhibition of work by UR alum Jeff Leavitt. Leavitt’s recent work illustrates relatable experiences of growth and human life by using repeated images of toy-like robots. The robots, which are placed in various fictional scenarios, are intended to represent and poke fun at the cyclical and often futile nature of the human experience. Jeff Leavitt is a Rochester-area visual artist who makes vibrantly colored, toy-like paintings, sculptures, and multimedia works, creating pieces that function as both conceptual artworks and posable action figures. Born and raised in Schenectady, NY, Leavitt has been involved in art-making since he was in elementary school. He received his bachelor of fine arts in studio arts from the University of Rochester in 2017 and is currently studying to get his master’s degree from RIT in the same field. Frontispace is at the entrance of the Art and Music Library of UR. This exhibition continues through October 26.
