Two Students Selected to Attend Venice Biennale Study Abroad Program Sponsored by Marist College

Two students from Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts have been selected to attend a month-long summer program co-sponsored by Marist College in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., and the Instituto Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence, Italy.  This intensive workshop experience offers advanced art students an opportunity to explore the work of global contemporary artists featured at the Venice Biennale 2011.

The Lyme Academy College students, who were chosen after a rigorous selection process, are sophomores Jeremy Horseman from Baltimore, Md., and Emma Kendall from Cottage Grove, Minn.  Both have been awarded scholarships by Marist to attend the program.  Also, Nancy Peel Gladwell, who is an Associate Professor of Painting and Foundation at Lyme Academy College, will be serving as a visiting faculty member at this combined studio/art history program. 

During the program, students will be immersed in the unique culture of Venice, Italy, and, after consulting with a faculty advisor, will work towards creating a body of work, culminating in an exhibition that will be an ancillary project of the Biennale.  The concentrations are painting, drawing, sculpture, digital photography, or cross-disciplinary.

The Biennale is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious art events. The 54th International Art Exhibition runs from June 4 through Nov. 27, 2011.  The previous exhibition hosted over 375,000 visitors, thus breaking all previous records.
