Third Annual Alumni Artists Panel

Hear from some of Adelphi’s most talented art graduates at the Third Annual Alumni Artists Panel.

Featured Panelists:

Scott Kearney ’07 – Graphic Design

I came into the professional field with one goal in mind- to become an accomplished graphic artist. After graduating and finishing an internship at Sony BMG, I gained technical printing skills at Compucolor and Prestone Press, production and visual storytelling skills at Morey Publishing, and infographic and digital skills at UBM Tech. Now I lead an in-house photography department as a presentation/visual design specialist for Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness in NYC, while working freelance at SK Media, Vivitar, and New York Fashion Week.

Katarzyna Bator ’13 – Art History

Katarzyna Bator received a BFA in Fine Arts and a BA in Art History from Adelphi University in 2013. Since graduation, Katarzyna received paper and book conservation training at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Morgan Library and Museum, the New York Historical Society Museum and Library, and the New York Academy of Medicine. In the summer of 2014, Katarzyna received an Andrew W. Mellon scholarship to study historic book structures at the North Bennet Street School in Boston, MA. Currently, Katarzyna is completing a graduate degree at the Patricia H. and Richard E. Garman Art Conservation Department at State University of New York College at Buffalo.

Rahama Junaid ’15 – Art Education

After graduating from Adelphi, I started teaching at IS 141 in Astoria, NY. Here I designed my own STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) based arts curriculum. The project based STEAM approach allows our students to understand the importance of art and engage in 21st century learning. I have presented this curriculum at several Arts Education conferences over the past three years, including NAEA and NYCATA.

Michael Gaughran ’08 – Studio Art

Michael Gaughran’s curatorial and artistic research is focused mainly on camp and performativity, with a special interest in the crossroad of appropriation & popular culture. He holds a BFA in Fine Arts ad African American Studies from Adelphi University; an MFA from Tufts University and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and a graduate certificate in Museum Studies and Art History from Tufts University. Gaughran has served as the curator for the former McGladrey Gallery at Bentley University, as well as a curatorial fellow at the New Art Center in Newton, MA. As an independent curator, he has produced several thematic group exhibitions which have been featured in The Boston Globe, Hyperallergic, and The New York Times, among others. With his most recent exhibition, Redrawing Reality, he was featured as one of Artsy’s “Curators to Watch.”
