The curators for this year’s exhibition are ACADEMY exhibition founder, Jamie Smith and former gallery director, Karyn Miller. As in previous years, the curators attended BFA/MFA exhibitions between January and June, viewing works in person to formulate a profile of area art programs. After consulting with artists, Smith and Miller selected a group of works created in various media, including painting, video, sculpture, and photography, which demonstrate individual achievement and represent vital currents in the fine art curricula of our region. 

 

The exhibition opens Friday, July 6th with a reception for the artists from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.
