On Friday, Feb. 17, the new gallery opened its doors at noon, showcasing its first exhibit, the 2017 Undergraduate Juried Exhibition, which runs through Feb. 24.
Mark Nielsen, exhibitions specialist for the Stamps School, said the new space is about 7,000 square feet and was designed to be flexible. The space can be arranged to meet the needs of the various exhibitions the art school hosts throughout the year.
Nielsen said the current undergraduate exhibit comprises a variety of art pieces, including work from freshmen students on up to seniors.
“It’s nice to have it all in the same space,” Nielsen said. “It shows the breadth of work from freshmen to senior and runs the gamut from more classroom-oriented stuff to more independent stuff.”
