This exhibition features the work of Wheaton’s senior studio art majors.
Two exhibitions celebrate Andrew K. Howard’s 43-year tenure as Professor of Art at Wheaton College. Howard’s landscape photographs of Alaska and the American Southwest are exhibited alongside the works of his former students—Robin Bowman, Liz Corman, Adam Ekberg, Rebecca Hale, Jenna Lee Mason, and Danielle Mourning—Wheaton alumni from class years 1982–2008.
Brush Coat Cover, juried by contemporary art dealer Cade Tompkins, is the fourth biennial at Wheaton. The 2019 exhibition focuses on work that challenges, explores, and celebrates the definition and history of painting, collectively evoking an open-ended conversation on the medium.
Second in a series of four biannual exhibitions curated by students enrolled in ARTH 335: Exhibition Design, It’s Elemental: Fire considers how fire—in all of its forms—affects our world. Using objects from the Gebbie Archives & Special Collections and the Permanent Collection, each exhibition will explore one of the four classical elements: water, air, earth, fire. This exhibition will be on display November 29, 2018–February 2, 2019. The galleries will be closed December 16, 2018–January 22, 2019 for winter break.
Sami Milloshi, an American citizen born in Albania, has been working for Wheaton College since 2016 in the Building Service Department. He is an author of five poetry books, including Albanian Tattoo, published in Bloomington, Indiana. Last month he published his sixth book with short stories.
This is his first debut in painting. He started painting a year ago while he was writing his short stories. Milloshi says, “I like to paint because I think painting makes me able to express what has been silenced at my poetry and prose…”
Milloshi’s art exhibition opening is October 16th in the Balfour-Hood Café from 6 to 7:30pm with light refreshments.
Please join us to celebrate the opening reception for our first two gallery exhibitions of the academic year. Fiber/Paper/Love and Simile + Metaphor: Red Necklace, curated by Elizabeth Keithline, explore and interpret fiber’s use and forms in innovative ways. Haas Visiting Artist Barbara Owen will give an artist talk at 5 p.m. in Ellison Lecture, preceding the reception. The exhibitions will be on display through November 3.
