PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Brown University’s David Winton Bell Gallery and Department of Visual Art will present the 25th annual Student Exhibition, a display of this year’s best student work, Saturday, March 19, through Sunday, April 3, 2005.

The exhibition is free and open to the public, as is an opening reception for the student artists Saturday, March 19, from 8 to 10 p.m. in the Bell Gallery, located on the first floor of the List Art Center at 64 College St.

The annual juried exhibition is open to all Brown students. In past years, the exhibitions have featured works in a wide range of media, from painting, drawing and printmaking, to digital and video-based work and installations. The exhibition offers the Providence community an opportunity to view the work of talented young artists and provides students with the valuable experience of showing their work in a professional setting.

The jurors for this year’s exhibition are Camille Rendal and Jeffrey Silverthorne. Rendal, a visiting assistant professor in visual arts at Roger Williams University, holds a B.F.A. from Otis Parson and an M.F.A. from New Mexico State University. Her work encompasses drawing, painting, printmaking and sculpture, although her primary interests lie in installation, performance sculpture and conceptual metalsmithing, as well as in Eastern and Western mythology and esoterica. Rendal’s work has been exhibited internationally and nationally, in venues in Portugal, Santa Fe, Santa Monica, Chicago, Mesa, Ariz., and Springfield, Mich.

Silverthorne is also a visiting assistant professor at Roger William University, where he primarily teaches photography. He received his B.F.A. and M.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design, and he has been awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities grant and a Massachusetts Artists Foundation grant. His work has been shown at the Venice Biennale in Italy, the Drawing Center in New York and the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, among other places; it is also in the collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, the L.A. County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Art in Houston and the Musée de l’Lysée in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The Bell Gallery is located on the first floor of the List Art Center, 64 College St. It is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 1 to 4 p.m. For more in-formation, call (401) 863-2932.
