Stockton President Herman J. Saatkamp: “For our students enrolled in programs involving the arts, the facility provides an opportunity to explore ideas and concepts in the visual arts in a manner we previously could not."
Stockton College deems itself as New Jersey’s distinctive public college, but with other college’s competing for the same students, what will entice prospective young scholars when deciding which college to attend in New Jersey?
Stockton is one of the most affordable schools within the state, and with the new spring semester already here, Stockton can add a bit more culture to its resume.
The success of the new College Campus Center, which opened in the spring of 2011, revamped the look and feel of the campus when it debuted. Stockton keeps coming out with new and innovative ways to give the students the education and experience that they would expect from their college.
A new Art Gallery is a testament to the promise that Stockton will live up to the hype of being a distinctive college.
The current Art Gallery exhibition that’s running through Feb. 22 is part of the college’s yearlong celebration of its 40th anniversary. The new bi-level gallery is located adjacent to the Performing Arts Center and covers two levels. The gallery’s inaugural exhibition, “New Work by the Visual Arts Faculty,” will cover the first level, while “David Ahlsted: Recent Paintings” can be viewed on the second floor.
Ahlsted’s past four murals, New Jersey Pine Barrens: Spring, Summer, Fall Winter, are permanent fixtures within the Campus Center. Current visual arts faculty including Marilyn Brent, Alfonso Corpus, Frank Kallop, Michael McGarvey, Jedediah Morfit, Hannah Ueno and Wendel White will also add their own works to the gallery.
The lower and upper gallery contains approximately 2,250 square feet, and features a floor cutout overlooking the lower gallery. This amount of space gives both current and future artists enough room to showcase their work. The gallery is free and open to the public, and the hours of operation can be found on Stockton’s Web site (Stockton.edu).
Stockton President Herman J. Saatkamp Jr. is confident that this art gallery will not only make the school more aesthetically inviting, but also give the students, specifically those involved directly in the arts, an opportunity to fully appreciate the program.
