New Works, our upcoming exhibition at New England College’s French Hall showcases the collaboration between BFA students at the Institute of Art and Design (The Institute) and the NH Furniture Masters. This exhibition is a unique collaboration that crosses many mediums.
Members of the Furniture Masters have partnered with a group of students at the Institute to complete a summer mentorship. Students have been visiting the Masters’ workshops and learning about fine furniture making. The students have taken what they have seen and learned from the Masters to reflect, draw, design and create a response piece in their medium. Their response pieces will be on display at this exhibition. A People’s Choice Award will be awarded to one of the students. We invite you to fill out a ballot casting a vote for your favorite response piece when you visit the New Works exhibit.
Note: This exhibition has been previously promoted as a mentorship with NHIA students, but following their merger with New England College, NHIA will now be known as ‘the Institute of Art and Design at New England College’.
