The Joseloff Gallery, located in the Harry Jack Gray Center, presents exhibitions in all media, showcasing internationally recognized artists as well as Hartford Art School faculty and students.
In addition to serving the university community, the Joseloff Gallery brings significant and challenging works of art to the attention of a broad public audience through exhibitions and related programs designed to foster dialogue and discussion. Recent projects include the groundbreaking Post Dec: Beyond Pattern and Decoration, featuring painters who established the Pattern and Decoration movement in the 1970s along with a younger generation of artists who explore similar aesthetic issues on contemporary terms; Beyond Green: Toward A Sustainable Art, with ironic and often outrageous installations related to solutions for a better environment. Other recent notable shows were Keith Sonnier, a pioneer in neon sculpture, and large-scale structures by visionary architect Samuel Mockbee and the Rural Studio.
The annual Hartford Art School Faculty Exhibition is a chance to view recent faculty work. All students are encouraged to enter the Student Juried Exhibition, which awards two $1,000 purchase prizes. Opening receptions and lively social events accompany each show.
Students are also encouraged to join the staff as gallery monitors.
