Patricia Rosoff, the Academic Dean of Humanities at Kingswood Oxford School and a longtime artist and art critic, will celebrate the publication of a new book with a reception and signing in Hartford on Dec. 5.
The book, Innocent Eye: A Passionate Look at Contemporary Art, is a collection of essays Rosoff wrote for such publications as The Hartford Advocate, Art New England and Sculpture Magazine between 1995 and 2004. A 37-year veteran at KO, Rosoff served as chair of the Creative Arts Department for 32 years before being named the Humanities Dean this year.
The reception, which is open to the public and free of charge, will be at The Dirt Salon, 50 Bartholomew Avenue, Hartford, from 5:30-7:30pm. It will feature a silent auction of works by a number of artists, including KO teachers Katherine Nicholson, Greg Scranton ’94, and Rosoff herself.
