Mercy Gallery

The Sue and Eugene Mercy Jr. Gallery, dedicated in honor of former Loomis Chaffee 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 invites artists who work in a wide variety of media and represent diverse artistic endeavors and cultural and geographic perspectives to exhibit and share their art with our community. Often these artists also participate in our Visiting Artists program — creating their art alongside our students.

Traci Talasco: Tipping Point
April 4—May 7, 2024

In conjunction with the CL Studio Art capstone show, Slavery at Loomis project exhibit, and artwork from all disciplines.

Traci Talasco’s solo exhibition, Tipping Point, uses the construct of home along with site-specific elements from the Loomis Chaffee campus to investigate social / political ideas and power imbalances. Everyday materials have a sense of familiarity, yet they are re-configured in absurd or poetic ways making the work emotionally charged.
