Gallery 5 provides an essential exhibition space for the Emmanuel College Art Department. The Gallery is utilized by Art Department faculty throughout the year as an educational tool that supports their teaching through the organizing of exhibitions with themes that are directly related to Art Department course content. Gallery 5 is consistently active with exhibitions of work by professional artists, emerging artists, artist residents, outsider artists and Emmanuel College art students and alumni. Utilizing work-study students as gallery assistants, Gallery 5 also provides Art Department students with hands-on experience related to curatorial work.
With its active exhibition schedule, opening receptions and artist talks, Gallery 5 actively engages the discourse of contemporary art with the goal of introducing this discourse to the Emmanuel College community. More broadly, Gallery 5 seeks to engage the larger art community of Boston and vicinity with the goal of positioning Emmanuel College as a viable and significant participant in contemporary art.
