“This is the way we play and learn,” an art exhibition by SUNY Broome Adjunct Instructor Rich Harrington, continues through June 25 at the Anthony Brunelli Fine Arts Gallery, 186 State Street, Binghamton, with an opening reception on June 3.

The artwork addresses issues of bullying, cultural roles defined by toys, games and textbooks, and the effect these have on growing into adulthood. Using culturally charged images, familiar materials, and a sense of humor, the work entices then provokes the viewer to look closer for deeper meaning.

Much of the work is comprised of multiple pieces referencing the repetition and reiteration of elementary school learning, as well as the hypnotic sprawling sameness of the suburban development in which the artist was raised.
