New gallery forming at Worcester State College

WSC Gallery
The Worcester State Gallery is building toward a professional level gallery to serve the campus community and the artistic community in the central Massachusetts area. We have approximately 2500 square feet in the Ghosh Science and Technology Building, which faces onto Chandler Street. Our campus is located at 486 Chandler Street, Worcester MA 01602. Contact Catherine Wilcox-Titus, Gallery Director, for more information cwilcoxtitus@worcester.edu.

The Gallery at Worcester State College is pleased to announce our first Call to Artists from the New England community for our fall show entitled In-Between

Since Robert Rauschenberg first produced his multimedia works called Combines in the 1950s, artists have never looked back in terms of combining sculpture, painting, and drawing. In-Between seeks submissions of artwork that combines one or more media or conceptually imagines in-between spaces, time, or identity. Assemblage, collage, sculpture combined with painting and drawing, photography combined with installations, or found objects combined with painting, drawing, or sculpture are just some of the possibilities. Artworks that think about space, time, or in-between sites may also reflect states of in-between.

Our first show dedicated to artists outside the College community will celebrate the Gallery’s future role in providing a venue for artists in the region and contribute to the growth of central Massachusetts as a culturally rich destination. Our Opening Reception date on Sept. 11th is also a celebration of the 136th anniversary of the founding of Worcester State College.

Juried by Worcester State College Faculty
Opening Reception: Sept. 11th 6-8 pm
On view: Sept. 11th-Thurs. Dec. 2nd

Dear July Resident

2 weeks and counting and I am off to Vermont Studio Center for the month of July.

I just received my first email that said "Dear July Resident"...and my stomach lurched with nerves and anticipation!...My supplies were ordered weeks ago and are now waiting in the studio. My ideas are solidifying and mock ups are being made. I am tying up all loose ends and finishing up current work....All to begin again, New work in a New place...How exciting!

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
