The Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery will present Suffrage 100, a collection of work by 19 female artists of A.I.R. Gallery of Brooklyn, N.Y., marking the 100-year anniversary of ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which secured voting rights for women.
The Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery, dedicated in honor of former Loomis Trustee Eugene Mercy Jr. ’55 and his wife, Sue, is located in the Richmond Art Center — the campus hub for the visual arts program. Throughout the year, the Mercy Gallery exhibits the work of a variety of artists in a diversity of media, artistic endeavor, cultural influence, and geographic representation. The work of Visiting Artists are displayed in the Mercy Gallery to coincide with their residency on the Island, encouraging direct interaction between artists and students.
