Esvelt

Gallery

Immerse In Art

The Gallery acts as a focal point for ideas presented in all manner of styles, which operate on both intellectual and tangible levels. This availability of art is not only an important aspect of culture for the broader community who view it, but also a valuable part of maintaining a healthy collegial environment for the CBC campus community.

The Esvelt Gallery brings art from visiting artists, faculty, and students through sponsorship from ASCBC and the Art Department. Our desire is to provide an artistic experience through a variety of exhibitions, artist lectures, workshops, and demonstrations, all of which are open to the student body and the public.

Admission is free and the public is welcome.

Current Exhibit

Open Fields
works by Emily Somoskey
January 3 – February 2, 2023

Gallery Talk: January 11, 2023 at 2:30pm in P201
Reception: to follow the artist’s talk in the Esvelt Gallery

“What I am trying to convey to you is more mysterious; it is entwined in the very roots of being, in the impalpable source of sensations.”  –J. Gasquet, Cézanne

As a mixed-media artist and painter, Somoskey’s work seeks to give form to the complexity, instability, and enigmatic nature of our lived experiences. All of the paintings in Open Fields are grounded in a representation of physical space, which also double as a metaphorical or physiological space. These works reference the varied ways in which we perceive, understand, and navigate our place within the current world and larger universe, speaking to the unnamable things in life that broadly and universally define our human existence. Although each piece is visually dense, Somoskey aims for them to invite a sense of openness in how the viewer comes to find meaning in them. Read More
