2013 Juried Student Exhibition
Skidmore College will showcase the 2013 Juried Student Exhibition from Thursday, Feb.
7, to Thursday, March 21, at the Schick Art Gallery, located in the Saisselin Art
Building. An opening reception is planned from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 7 at the gallery.
Guest juror Kathryn Price, curator of special projects at Williams College Museum
of Art in Williamstown, Mass., will give a lecture at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, in
Davis Auditorium. Both events are free and open to the public.
A highlight of the Schick Art Gallery calendar, the annual Juried Student Exhibition celebrates the creativity, imagination, and skill of Skidmore art students.
Each year, a guest juror selects the exhibition from work completed by Skidmore students
in the areas of ceramics, drawing and painting, electronic media, fiber arts, graphic
design, jewelry and metals, installation, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.
From an average of 250 entries, the juror typically chooses one-quarter to one-third
of that number for exhibit and also selects outstanding work for special awards. Prizes
and gift certificates totaling more than $1,000 are funded annually through donations
made by friends of the gallery and campus organizations, as well as Soave Faire, Allerdice
Hardware, and the Adirondack Trust Company. Awards are announced at the opening reception.
Guest juror this year is Kathryn Price of the Williams College Museum of Art. Price oversees the curatorial department, including managing exhibitions, publications, and collections. Her areas of interest include 19th-century American and European art and modern and contemporary art. Recently she served as managing editor for several major publications, including Sol Lewitt: The Well-Tempered Grid and the award-winning Asco: Elite of the Obscure, A Retrospective, 1972–1987, the first retrospective of the Chicano performance and conceptual art group Asco. (Co-organized with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.)
Her Feb. 27 lecture is titled Landscapes of the Mind: Contemporary Artists Contemplate the Brain. Admission is free and open to the public. For more information, please visit the gallery website at www.skidmore.edu/schick.
