Faculty and student art exhibitions opened in the Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery and the Barnes and Wilde Galleries in the Richmond Art Center on September 21.
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 is often displayed in the Mercy Gallery to coincide with their residency on the Island, encouraging direct interaction between artists and students.
Work Against Grain, a solo exhibition of work by christian.ryan, a transdisciplinary artist and teacher in Loomis Chaffee’s Visual Arts Department, opened on Tuesday, September 21, in the Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery in the Richmond Art Center and is on display through October 26.
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.
We regret that public access to the Mercy Gallery is not permitted at this time due to COVID-19 safety restrictions. Students, faculty and staff may view the exhibitions in the Richmond Art Center during regular school hours.
