The mission of the Kinetic Gallery is to provide a space where both student artists and student curators can gain professional exhibit experience, specifically through displays organized by Activities Commission Arts & Exhibits. The gallery features works from both student and outside artists and, through its exhibits, the Kinetic Gallery facilitates the development of an appreciation of and interest in the fine arts among all students.

Have you ever taken a watercolor, printmaking or figure drawing class at Geneseo? Then you've probably met Tom MacPherson. Even if you've never taken an art class with him, his work will blow you away.
MacPherson combines his traditional Italian family values with egg tempera, using the incredibly difficult medium of Renaissance masters to paint his relatives. He installs his paintings in conjunction with furniture arrangements akin to the living rooms he remembers as backdrops for family bonding. MacPherson's work is strikingly intimate and intricately executed in its examination of family, religion and artistic technique.
