Eighth Annual Colleges of Worcester Consortium Student Art Exhibition
This juried exhibition gathers the best student artwork from the Colleges of the Worcester Consortium, with prizes given for painting, photography, sculpture, works on paper, and--beginning this year--new media. With participation from Anna Maria College, Assumption College, Becker College, Worcester Polytechnic Institution, College of the Holy Cross, Clark University, Worcester State University, and Quinsigamond Community College, this event is one of the few opportunities to experience Worcester as a university town, and to see its wealth of new artistic talent.
This year's exhibition will be juried by Susan Heideman, Professor of Art at Smith College, and will run through March 2, 2012. The opening reception, Friday, February 3, from 6-8 PM is free and open to the public.
Special underwriting for this event is provided by the Colleges of the Worcester Consortium; the Worcester Arts Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency; Davis Publications; and by the Sprint Public Sector Discount Program for COWC employees and students. Music will be provided by Gamble and Burke. Parking for the opening is available in the lots of the Freemasons' building, at 1 Ionic Avenue.
