2016 Juried Skidmore Student Exhibition
A highlight of the Skidmore academic year as well as a popular community event, we
are pleased to present the 2016 Juried Skidmore Student Exhibition, a celebration
of the creativity, imagination, and skill of Skidmore College students.
February 5 – March 7, 2016
Opening reception: Friday, February 5, 5:30 – 7 p.m.
Each year, students submit works in all materials, including painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, fibers, printmaking, graphic design, photography, digital media, and animation. From an average of 250 entries, a guest juror typically chooses 50 – 75 works for exhibit, and also selects outstanding works for special awards. Awards and gift certificates totaling over $1000 are funded annually through donations by friends of the gallery, campus organizations, and generous community benefactors.
The juror for this year’s exhibition is Douglas Dreishpoon. Dreishpoon is Chief Curator Emeritus at the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo, NY, and was curator and director there from 1998 - 2014. He has worked in museums for more than twenty years, including serving as Curator of Collections at the Weatherspoon Art Museum in North Carolina, and Curator of Contemporary Art at the Tampa Museum of Art in Florida. Also a writer, his essays and reviews have been published in numerous catalogues and magazines, including Art in America and Art Journal. Dreishpoon holds a PhD from the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, and is a 1976 graduate of Skidmore College, with a major in Art History.
