Annual BOSS show features outstanding student artwork
The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery has announced the opening of this year’s BOSS (Best of Salve Students) show, an annual survey of outstanding student artwork drawn from the full spectrum of visual art courses taught on campus.
This juried exhibition showcases creative achievement at all studio levels, from introductory to advanced, in a wide variety of media. This year’s show features photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, graphic design and sculpture.
An awards ceremony and reception for the artists will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13. Students, faculty and the general public are all welcome. The Department of Art and Art History will also hold a new student orientation during this evening’s events. The show runs through Wednesday, Oct. 10.
The juror for this year’s BOSS show is Providence-based painter Dan Talbot. In November of this year, the gallery will host a residency program featuring Talbot and his creative work. He will relocate his studio practice into the gallery space and interact with the campus community for the two weeks between the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
The gallery is handicap accessible with parking along Lawrence and Leroy avenues. Its exhibits are open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The gallery is closed on Mondays.
