As a high school student Benjamin Craig's motto was, "Here's my plate, load it on." He brought that mentality with him to Emmanuel, where he has always been ready to take on a new opportunity.
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. 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 and beyond.
Gallery 5 provides an essential exhibition space for the Emmanuel College Art Department. The Gallery is consistently active with exhibitions of work by professional artists, emerging artists, artist residents, outsider artists and Emmanuel College art students and alumni. The Gallery is utilized by 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.
The ceramic commons project is an idea that has develop between Anna Andersen, Horsens (DK) and Megumi Naitoh, Boston (USA). both working with ceramic and 3D printing. Ceramic Commons celebrate open-source environment, and digital 3D technology that allows us to send and share work across the world. We invited 10 artists working with a ceramic extruding 3D printer, and asked them to join the project by sending their work to us electronically. The collection of 10 works is printed in Boston, showing at Gallery 5 at Emmanuel College from 3/11/19-4/22/19. This is an organic process and an open ended project that provokes dialogues about sharing resources and issues around authorship and aesthetic control.
