Boxxed in with the students of ‘New Calluses: Artists with Direction’

The Boxx in Doane Hall of Art is a newly constructed student-run gallery. Its inaugural show was held on Nov. 3, 2015. Artists are still working on the ongoing exhibit, titled “New Calluses: Artists with Direction”. The exhibition ends on Nov. 30, 2015.

The space is comprised of four compartments, separated by white walls providing seclusion and privacy to students working in the space.

Allison Bartlett, ’16, occupies her own corner of the Boxx, working on her collection of paintings. According to Bartlett, the space was given to Professor Steve Prince’s 583 studio art class.

“I’m doing a series of devotional pieces on the seven deadly sins,” said Bartlett.

She recently completed her depictions of Gluttony and Wrath. Envy is still in sketch form, as well as Sloth.

Bartlett expressed her appreciation of the space, since Prince’s office moved to the former Center for Political Participation in Brooks Hall.

“It’s private enough that you don’t feel self conscious that people will walk in and mess with your stuff,” said Bartlett, regarding the other students utilising the space.

Being surrounded by works in progress provides an atmosphere of familiarity and artistic acceptance.

“It’s nice to get people’s feedback and inspiration from the other people working in here,” said Bartlett.

Allison Bartlett, '16, sketches a life-sized interpretation of her depiction of one of the 'seven deadly sins', inspired by the works of Pieter Brueghel and Hieronymous Bosch, two painters with focuses in sketching and impasto painting. Bartlett works on her depiction of 'Sloth' in the Boxx gallery in the Doane Hall of Art on Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015.
