The David Winton Bell Gallery and the Department of Visual Art present the work of forty-four artists in Brown’s 35th annual Student Exhibition, on view at the Bell Gallery from Saturday, April 11 to Sunday, April 26, 2015. An opening reception will be held Saturday, April 11, from 7:00pm until 9:00pm. There will be two performances during the reception. The exhibition and opening reception are free and open to the public.
Organized by students Zachary Korol-Gold and Andrew Alexander, the juried exhibition is open to all Brown University students, regardless of major, and encourages artists to submit work in a variety of media. This year the exhibition includes performance, video, web-based work, sculpture, drawing, painting, photography, prints, and artist’s books. The work selected for this exhibition is exceptional for its boundary pushing material investigations. This extensive survey of the visual arts at Brown highlights the dynamic ways in which students are engaging and redefining the arts today.
The forty four artists represented in the exhibition are: Andrew Alexander, Jacqueline Anton, Diego Arene-Morley, Jennifer Avery, Ivy Brenneman, Jake Brodsky, Miranda Chao, Andres Chang, Susan Chen, Kwang Choi, Brittany Comunale, Rosa Congdon, Camille Coy, Layla May Ehsan, Dylan Everett, Elodie Freyman, Micahel Gabrielle, Zachary Korol-Gold, Rachel Haberstroh, Griffin Hartman, Matt Hill, JoVaun M.
