(BRANCHBURG, NJ) — Raritan Valley Community College’s (RVCC) Arts & Design department will present the 19th Annual RVCC Juried Student Art Exhibition from November 11-December 2, in the Art Gallery at the College’s Branchburg campus. The exhibition is being coordinated by Darren McManus, Associate Professor and Art Gallery Director.
Student artwork completed for visual art, graphic design or interior design classes during the past year—since the Fall 2021 Semester—will be featured in the exhibition. Selected work will span a variety of media including ceramics, painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic design, digital and multimedia, photography, illustration, interior design, video and printmaking.
Each student was permitted to submit up to three pieces of artwork for consideration. The guest juror for this year’s exhibition is visual artist Jane Lafarge Hamill. Hamill will evaluate all the entries, make the final selections for the exhibition and determine the “best in show” award winners.
Jane Lafarge Hamill is a painter and virtual reality artist. After earning her MFA from the New York Academy of Art in figurative painting, she lived and worked in New York City for 10 years before moving to a farm in rural New Jersey. Hamill’s current work is abstract, displaying exuberant gestures of color in an array of scale. Her virtual reality work explodes this scale into larger than life-size digital translations; they are installations in which the viewer can walk about while discovering their own agency to interact with the brush marks surrounding them. She has presented numerous solo exhibitions in New York City and internationally, and her work is in private and public collections. Hamill is represented in New York City by FMLY Gallery and SPACE SBH Gallery. In 2020, she was a resident member at the New Museum’s NEW INC Program—the world’s first museum-led incubator for people working at the intersection of art, design and technology. Hamill is also the founding director of MarthaMOCA, an artist residency at her farm in Lambertville.
The opening reception will be held in the RVCC Art Gallery on Friday, November 11 from 5:00pm-7:00pm. The event is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
Gallery hours are Mondays, 3:00pm-8:00pm.; Tuesdays, 10:00am-3:00pm; Wednesdays, 3:00pm-8:00pm; Thursdays, 10:00am-6:00pm; and Fridays, 1:00pm-4:00pm. On Friday, November 11, the Art Gallery will not open until 5 p.m. For further information, contact Arts & Design, 908-218-8876.
