August 30, 2023–October 14, 2023
For our inaugural 2023 Artist Residency, the Beard and Weil Galleries will be transformed into a studio workspace for two visiting artists, Bláithín Haddad and Adjua Gargi Nzinga Greaves. Haddad, who graduated from Wheaton in 2019, is working in printmaking and glass sculpture on ideas around parasites, immigration, and belonging. Greaves’s interdisciplinary practice is guided by metaphysics, network science, ethnobotany, and the granular analytics of poetic inquiry. She will be working with poetry, linguistics, and LEGOs this fall.
The artists in residence will work in the galleries for six weeks, August 30-October 14 with open studio hours every Wednesday 11-1 and a collaborative workshop Oct. 12 from 6-8pm.
1:00–5:00 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
1:00–8:00 p.m., Thursday
The galleries are closed Sunday, Monday, and during college breaks.
About the Galleries
Through direct engagement with art, the Beard and Weil Galleries aim to foster a greater understanding of our shared world.
The Beard and Weil Galleries are a generative space for art and visual culture that develop knowledge and understanding across disciplines through public exhibitions and programs. The galleries are a hub of innovative research, creativity, and experiential learning that involves and engages the entire Wheaton community as well as the visiting public.
The Beard and Weil Galleries are a vital part of Wheaton’s creative and intellectual life. Our dynamic programming features work by contemporary artists and innovative exhibitions drawn from Wheaton’s Permanent Collections and Archives.
The Galleries’ educational mission encompasses all forms of creative expression in an effort to forge meaningful connections between objects and their histories, student and faculty creative work, art historical research, and critical thinking. The crucial role the visual arts play in a liberal arts education is central to the design and focus of our exhibitions.
Student-curated exhibitions are designed to give hands-on experience in the conception, design, and educational interpretation of exhibitions. Student creative work is featured annually in a Senior Visual Art and Design Majors’ exhibition.
