ROOM, Canzani Center Gallery (map it)
FULL STOP is a full-scale, highly detailed replica of an artist's studio made entirely of cardboard and black paint. But at the center is a blank canvas sitting on an easel. As Jessica Hough said at the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, “Filled with historical art references, it is at once playful and painful—a fresh commentary on a perennial problem.”
Gallery Hours: Monday, closed; Tuesday–Friday, 10 a.m.–7 p.m.; Saturday & Sunday, noon–6 p.m. (The gallery is generally closed for holidays when the college is closed.)
This program is free and open to the public. If you would like to support programs like this, please donate any amount online (choose the "exhibitions and visiting artists & scholars" option).
