The College of Imaging Arts and Science showcases the works of MFA and BFA students and faculty every year. Tonight, the University, Bevier and William Harris Gallery will be opening their individual exhibitions as a part of RIT’s Gallery Hop event tonight at each respective gallery. The receptions are open to the public from 5 – 7 p.m. and refreshments will be provided.
University Gallery hosts “Minding the Gap”, an exhibit celebrating the research and creativity of CIAS schools. Each school is represented by an undergraduate student, a graduate student and a faculty member whose work showcases the leading research areas at CIAS. The exhibition is not just demonstrative but also educational in nature. In addition to these CIAS student and faculty projects, a recent project by Imaging Permanence Institute has also joined the displays at University Gallery. The exhibition will be on display until April 14.
Right across the hall, Bevier Gallery will be showcasing the first of two MFA Thesis Exhibitions. This show will display pieces by seven students of the School of Art and School of American Crafts. Each of these projects is a symbol of individuality and artistry. The French artist Henri Matisse once said “An artist is an explorer”; Bevier Gallery is quite a beautiful place to explore! The show will stay on display through April 8.
The William Harris Gallery will be showing “Glad to be Wrong”, an annual exhibition featuring thesis projects by Fine Art Photography seniors from the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences. These works include photographs, videos and installation media to be exhibited through April 7.
This is the first time all three galleries have come together to give visitors a combined experience of knowledge, aspect and thought. Have an exciting Gallery Hop this Friday!
