He plans to work with other institutions in the region, pooling resources and coordinating efforts.

Ostrow, whose paintings and sculptures have been exhibited at many New York galleries, received a master of fine arts degree from the University of Massachusetts in 1972.

The Atrium Gallery, located in the Fine Arts Building, is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
