Gallery featuring “Best of Salve Students”
The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery has announced the opening of BOSS Show 2017, the Best of Salve’s Students.
BOSS Show is 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. 14 in the gallery. Students, faculty and the general public are all welcome. The Department of Art and Art History will also hold a new student orientation during the evening’s events.
The juror for BOSS Show is Providence-based painter Mara Metcalf, who has taught drawing and painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston for more than 20 years. In January 2018, she will unveil her first curatorial project in the gallery.
BOSS Show will be on display in the gallery through Wednesday, Sept. 27. Gallery hours are 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.
