Reception: Saturday, October 22, 4pm Lykes Atrium, Wilson Hall
When the Department of Art and Art HIstory moved to the newly constructed Wilson Hall in 2006, Staniar Gallery opened its doors with generous funding from distinguished Washington and Lee alumnus Burt Staniar. With a mission to serve as a pedagogical exhibition space, Staniar Gallery has hosted over 70 shows in its first decade, enabling students to understand art in its cultural contexts. In addition to presenting contemporary and art historical works, the gallery provides programming to enhance the University's liberal arts curriculum. To commemorate the tenth anniversary, the gallery presents a group exhibition featuring recent works by Studio Art Faculty and Washington and Lee alumni who studied art in Wilson Hall and Staniar Gallery.
