From this evening, May 15th, for only four days, until Sunday May 19th, the Senior Thesis Exhibition of the work of the Illustration, Fine Arts, and Graphic Design graduates of the Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design will be on display at The Gallery in Altos de Chavón.
The exhibit will be officially opened this evening (Wednesday May 15th) from 7:30pm to 9pm and will then be open daily 9:30am – 6:30pm (closing Sunday evening).
Later this week, on Saturday May 18th, the students of the 29th class of the Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design will be celebrating their graduation at the Casa de Campo Flamboyan Conference Center – and from 12:30pm they will be at The Gallery proudly showing off their works to their friends and families. This gathering is open to the public, but with a crowd of more than 600 anticipated it is recommended that perhaps you may like to visit at a different time – so that you may really be able to appreciate the collection of artworks.
On Sunday May 19th the show will be taken down and a pared down version will travel to the Altos de Chavón Gallery in Santo Domingo, where it will remain during the summer months.
It’s an amazing display of youthful talent – and many works are for sale through the school. If you love art, often cutting edge work, work that is both skilled and exuberant, this is the show for you. Hundreds of pieces are on display, including works of sculpture. With so much to display, an additional annex of large paintings will be on exhibit in the space formerly known as the “Giacosa restaurant”, which has been generously lent to the school by the owners, who also own the The Club Riverside Steakhouse.
If you love art – the graduate thesis show is not to be missed. Here you will see the future Dominican luminaries of art and design, NOT TO BE MISSED!
Also taking place this week is Estilo 2013, the fashion show presented by the fashion design students of the Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design, Friday, 8pm at the Casa de Campo Flamboyan Conference Center. Click here for more details.
