Sam Francis Gallery

The Sam Francis Gallery, located in the Peter Boxenbaum Arts Education Centre on the 21st Street Campus, is dedicated to the display of student art and to presenting cutting-edge exhibitions of work by locally and nationally prominent artists.
Thematically-based group exhibitions are often organized by independent curators and participating artists give public lectures and student workshops. Each spring, a group of student curators works with the Gallery director to organize an exhibition of works by local artists.

  • Surface Tension

    Curated by: Susan Arena and Elyse Jung-Vrymoed ’06

    Susan Arena P’19, P’22, Fritz Chesnut P’22, Natalie Cox, Joe Davidson P’22, P’24, Yvette Gellis, Mercedes Gertz, Jenny Hager, Elyse Jung-Vrymoed ’06, Robin Mitchell, Rob Reynolds

    The artists in this show use traditional mediums of painting and sculpture in different ways—some work in abstraction or suggestive imagery and others use imagery as a conceptual means. But there is a commonality, a sense that the visual surface and the plasticity of the space are important as artifacts plumbed from the depths, used to signify a sense of the unseen.
