Margaret Voss, an associate professor of nutrition and food studies and the Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith Professor for Teaching Excellence in Falk College, is one of six faculty/staff artists who were selected to display their art at the “On My Own Time” finale exhibition Oct. 11-Nov. 7 at the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse.

“On My Own Time” is a program spearheaded by CNY Arts to celebrate the often-unsung artists employed by local businesses in Central New York who create art on their own time. Syracuse University has participated in “On My Own Time” ever year it has been offered since 1982 and it’s estimated that more than 1,800 faculty and staff have exhibited.

This year’s on-campus exhibition, which was displayed in Hendricks Chapel throughout late May and early June, comprised 34 pieces of art from 17 faculty/staff artists representing 14 schools, colleges, and departments across the University. The diverse range of artwork submitted this year included drawing, photography, painting, sculpture, glasswork, jewelry making, printmaking, fiber art, computer art, and collage/assemblage.

Of the six artists who’ll display at the Everson, five were selected by CNY Arts judges and a sixth individual received the People’s Choice Award, nominated by people on campus who visited this year’s exhibition. Voss’ art is a stunning piece of jewelry she calls “A Rococo Homage.”
