The NEC Art Gallery Presents the Annual Student Exhibition
The Gallery at New England College presents the Annual Student Exhibition November 11 through December 12. The public is invited to a reception on Thursday, November 11 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Works in all media— photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, two-and three-dimensional design, and graphic design - will be shown. This is the first time the student exhibition will be juried to help prepare students for the experiences they will encounter beyond college. Artist and former New England College Gallery Director Jan Hodges will be the juror for this student exhibition.

“Young artists trying to get their work in front of an audience and to build an exhibition record must present in regional and national juried competitions,” said Gallery Director Darryl Furtkamp. "These exhibitions are usually thematic or related to a specific medium. While the jury process at the college level is a more comfortable and familiar learning environment, it allows a parallel experience the artists will experience post graduation … the preparation, adherence to guidelines, trepidation, and enthusiasm."
New England College’s program in art and art history provides knowledge of the basic means of visual expression and a broad exposure to the history of art. Majors acquire a foundation for professional or graduate study or careers in teaching, museum work, and studio and commercial art. Students may choose to specialize in general studio art, graphic and communication design, painting/drawing, photography, or art history.
