SFUAD students are showing in professional art galleries!
This spring, Santa Fe University of Art and Design’s Studio Arts students are invading the real world of art galleries! Partnered with Wade Wilson Gallery in downtown Santa Fe, New Mexico, our students will get a chance to understand how showing in an art gallery works – from the very start to the very finish. Over the course of three gallery shows, our students will work to create the gallery space, host gallery openings, and maintain visiting hours for the public to tour their work. Not only is this an important opportunity for a student artist – it’s great bragging rights! Showing your work in a professional, public gallery before you graduate is a once-in-a-lifetime chance, and we try and make it happen for every one of our Studio Arts students before they graduate. Our students are excited to get off campus and into the public eye!
“Wade Wilson’s generous invitation to Santa Fe University of Art and Design is both a tangible statement of support for the university and a gesture of confidence in the education of young artists,” said Linda Swanson, dean of SFUAD’s School of Visual and Communication Arts. SFUAD@Wade Wilson Art will also present events from across other artistic mediums that span the breadth of SFUAD programs, including musical performances, readings, artist talks and screenings.
