WASHINGTON, DC – Gallery 102 is proud to present the "Corcoran Senior Photo Exhibition," a group exhibition of the Corcoran Fine Art Photography Seniors. Each artist reflects on their current photographic process and project, ultimately looking ahead to the capstone of their thesis project -- NEXT. Ranging from abstract photography and still life, to the European standards of beauty placed on the black female body, each artist mines and explores their personal photographic motivations.
Exhibiting artists include: Helen Jackson, Olivia Place, Ashley Polite, MichaelAngelo Rodriguez, Sloane Tucker, and Keara Wilson.
Join Gallery 102 for an artist talk with the artists, moderated by Professor Jennifer Sakai, on Monday September 11 at 6:30 pm in Gallery 102. The talk is free and open to the public. RSVP here.
Additionally, join Gallery 102 and the artists for the closing reception of "Corcoran Senior Photo Exhibition" on Monday September 18 at 5:00 pm in Gallery 102. Food and refreshments will be provided, free and open to the public. RSVP here.
Gallery 102 and the Student Exhibitions Committee (SEC) is committed to the exhibiting of contemporary art, including work from GW & Corcoran students, DC-area artists, and nationally recognized artists of all medium. The SEC consists of GW & Corcoran students -- undergraduate and graduate, majors and non-majors, artists and art historians -- who both develop innovative, original, and thought-provoking exhibitions throughout GW's campus and invite a select group of guest curators to present exhibitions each semester. The gallery provides practical curatorial experience to the student body. Students have the opportunity to exhibit work, curate shows, and install exhibitions.
