Clark University will host a spring art exhibition, “Home: Self, Spirit, Space,” featuring the work of graduate students and renowned artists from throughout New England.
“The artists in this exhibition offer various perspectives on this universal longing for 'home' — the quest for a sense of safety, peace, acceptance, and well-being,” said Elli Crocker, professor of studio art and gallery director.
The exhibit will run from Tuesday, Jan. 17, to Sunday, Feb. 26 at the Schiltkamp Gallery in the Traina Center for the Arts, 92 Downing St., Worcester. An opening reception will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 25, from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
Artists in the exhibit include Joan Baldwin, Nina Bellucci, Joan Benotti, Jennifer Day, Jenna DeLuca, Matthew Dickey, Erin Diebboll, Gary Duehr, Kevin Frances, Jan Johnson, Kelly Anona Kerrigan, Carol McMahon, Evan Morse, Chelsea Revelle, Soha Saghazadeh, Brittany Severance and Dawn Southworth.
“A few of these artists play on sentimental or cliché associations of home. Though the stories are often personal, the themes are universal,” Crocker said.
The exhibition is a juried show in response to an open call. It was curated and installed by students in ARTS 296 Gallery Culture and Practice, a "Problems of Practice" course in which students explore opportunities to connect what they learn in the classroom with issues and matters faced by professionals working beyond the campus.
An artists’ reception will be held on Thursday, Feb. 16, from noon to 1 p.m. For more information, call 508-793-7349.
