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 drawing and prints in this exhibition illustrate not only Theresa Monaco's talents as a creator of art but the central theme of her work.
"My artwork explores and interprets memory - both the memory inherent in living beings and inorganic things. Using light and dark as expressive qualities, the subject I have explored over the years is the human portrait and later interior spaces and landscapes."
Theresa Monaco's life as an artist was anchored at Emmanuel College. She received her BA in Studio Art '62 and BFA '65 in Painting at Emmanuel before continuing her formal training at Syracuse University where she received her MFA in printmaking and drawing in 1972. Thereafter she taught at Emmanuel College until her retirement as Professor Emerita in 2004. Over the years, she participated in many solo and group shows including the Boston Printmakers annual shows, "The Nature of Things" at the DeCordova Museum, and at the NAGA Gallery, as well as exhibitions in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Rhode Island, Virginia, and Vietnam. For many years she was a member of the Executive Board of the Boston Printmakers and the Indochina Arts Partnership Board.
