Exhibition Receptions

You must attend every exhibition reception this semester. Additional required events may be announced after the start of the semester You will dedicate 1 page of your sketchbook to this assignment. Each time you attend an opening, Phil McCollam, the Gallery Manager, will ask you a question about the exhibit, and then stamp your sketchbook or give you a sticker.

Remember that you do not have to stay the whole reception (unless there is an artist talk, in which case you must stay for the full talk) – you just have to spend some time checking out the work, ask Phil to stamp your sketchbook (he’ll ask you a question to see if you actually spent time in the gallery), and then you’re done. This is open to the public – feel free to bring anyone and everyone you like!
If you are unable to attend any of the receptions, instead of taking a zero on the reception, you can write a 3 page report on an artist I choose. It should briefly cover some biographical information and focus on how the artist works, what their subject matter is, etc. MLA format and citations are necessary. Your references should be from the library (books or databases), not the internet. You must turn in the paper by 5pm on the Friday after the reception (put it in my door-mailbox).
