This year’s incoming Clarke College art students will know the College’s Quigley Gallery 1550 well before they arrive on campus.
The Clarke College Art Department will open its gallery season with a New Student Art Exhibit now through Monday, Sept. 4, in the Quigley Gallery 1550 on the Clarke campus. Admission is free and the public is invited to attend.
This exhibit, which runs over the College’s Welcome Weekend, will feature a variety of art by approximately 25 of Clarke’s new art students.
“We want to showcase and welcome the new students into the art department and Clarke communities,” said Louise Kames, chair and professor of art. “This is the first of four exhibits students will participate in at Clarke and it brings them into a professional and social climate of a life in the arts.”
“For me, this means I’m continuing to display my work while growing and developing as an artist,” said incoming art student Joe Turek, of Monroe, Wis. “I’m very excited to be at Clarke around other artists who are focused and working toward an art degree.”
The Quigley Gallery 1550 is open Monday through Friday from noon-5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1 p.m.-5 p.m.
