If you had taken the traditional “Back to School” photo of a grinning Corina Willette on her first day of class last month, she might have been carrying the requisite box—but it would be a paint box. She may have been showing off new pencils—but they would be colored pencils. She was probably wearing new shoes—stylish walking shoes to carry her both on the paths of SUNY New Paltz, New York state’s flagship college for the visual arts, and along Manhattan’s West 57th Street where Galerie St. Etienne is located.
