BOSS SHOW 2019, SEPT 12 – OCT 02



Reception & Awards Ceremony: 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 12, 2019


The Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of this year’s Best of Salve’s Student Show- BOSS Show 2019.


The BOSS Show is an annual survey of outstanding student artwork drawn from the full spectrum of visual art courses taught on campus.  This juried exhibition showcases creative achievement at all studio levels, from introductory to advanced, in a wide variety of media.  This year’s show features artwork from both art majors and non-art majors in the areas of photography, painting, drawing, illustration, ceramics, graphic design and interactive media.


The juror for the BOSS Show 2019 is the Rhode Island-based interdisciplinary artist and papermaker May Babcock.  Later this year, during the two weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, the Hamilton Gallery will host a residency program featuring Ms. Babcock.  At that time, she will relocate her studio practice from Providence into the Hamilton Gallery and gather sketches, materials and environmental information from local Newport sites to create new works of paper and develop installations.


An awards ceremony and reception for the artists is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2019 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.  Students, faculty and the general public are all welcome.  The Department of Art and Art History will also hold a new student orientation during this evening’s events.  The BOSS Show 2019 runs through Wednesday, October 02, 2019.

Hamilton Gallery is handicap accessible with parking along Lawrence and Leroy Avenues.  Its exhibits are open Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:00 to 6:00 p.m., Wednesdays and Fridays 11:00 to 5:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays noon to 4:00 p.m.  The gallery is closed on Mondays.  We invite you to visit us.
