New Exhibition Space Dedicated to Alumni Work

Located on the first floor of the Richmond Center, the exhibition “Featured Alumni from the University Art Collection” will rotate annually, honoring our alumni and reaffirming our deep appreciation for their gifts to the University and the greater Kalamazoo community. The inaugural suite of seven artworks includes My Sunny Pathway, a recently donated watercolor by DeVries; an intimate painting titled Other Fish by Mary Hatch; and Into the Blue, one of Eve Reid’s earlier handmade paper pieces. Exhibited in the Biennale Internazionale Dell’Arte Contemporanea, in Florence, Italy, in December of 2009 and recently donated to the University Art Collection, John Kollig’s Venetian Series #5 hangs as the centerpiece of this new exhibition space. The darker, more dramatic prints and painting by Sy Ellens, James Walker, and Peter Gooch, anchor the wall.
