The Program in Visual Arts at Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts will open the studios of junior and senior certificate students on November 20 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the Lewis Center, 185 Nassau Street. Also on view starting November 13 and running through November 21 is an exhibition, Glazed and Confused, presenting new student work in painting and ceramics in the Center’s Lucas Gallery. The exhibition and studio visit are free and open to the public.
The evening of open studios will feature works-in-progress by students working in a wide range of media including photography, sculpture, painting, drawing, graphic design, scenic design, and film and video. Students will be on hand to show and discuss their work.
“Our students often remark that their peers and the public don’t know what goes on inside 185 Nassau Street,” notes Joe Scanlan, Director of the Program in Visual Arts. “Having open studios offers the entire Princeton community a chance to see creativity in action and to chat with the students behind the work. The students benefit greatly from sharing what they are working on while they are still in the midst of the creative process.”
The open studios event will begin at 4:30 p.m. with junior studios on the fourth floor and will continue at 5:15 p.m. with the senior studios on the second floor.
The exhibition, Glazed and Confused, opening November 13 with a reception at 4:00 p.m. features recent work by over 20 students currently enrolled in “Introductory Painting,” “Painting Without Canvas,” and “Ceramic Sculpture” at the Lewis Center.
Following the show of work by students in painting and ceramics will be an exhibition of work in sculpture, graphic design, and photography (December 4-14). From late February through May a series of exhibitions of work by seniors in the Program will be presented.
