The Queens College Art Department is pleased to invite you to the final show of the semester in the Klapper Student Gallery – the Senior Projects Art Exhibition! This group exhibition features work from undergraduate students taking Senior Projects courses.

The Art department is pleased to offer a special printmaking course in Spring 2019 for both graduate and undergraduate students. With the instruction of experienced printmaker Lisa Mackie, this course will cover Lithography and Monotype Processes. Drawing and printing with litho plates and stones in both black-and-white and color will be presented, as well as photo processes using black-and-white laser prints as a matrix and aluminum photo litho plates. Images may be re-examined, varied, and extended through the exploration of water-based monotype mylar overlays. Catalytic assignments are presented throughout the course. Students will be asked to visually examine their concepts and allow their artwork to develop within the parameters and new territory of lithography and into mixed media. Finally, the course will teach students about the heritage, history, and technology of traditional and contemporary printmaking.
The Art department will have extended open hours for the remainder of the semester. Shops will be open Wednesday 12-5pm and Friday 10-2 until the last day of finals! For additional information on the shops or other studio spaces, see the Facilities page.

The QC art department is pleased to offer a new cross-disciplinary course for students of: Art, Media, Environmental Studies, Urban Theory, Music, Sound Art, Theater, Dance, Film, and Writing
Fusing project-based studio practice with individual research this hybrid seminar explores the shifting line between contemporary art and social practice through the lens of what we consider the human and the non-human. Becoming Insect approaches socially engaged cultural learning through interdisciplinary creative expression this course combines artistic methods with environmental observation and scientific studies of arthropod morphology and eusocial behavior patterns, as well as the ways these visual and physical attributes have influenced a wide range of fields including, though not limited to literature, two and three dimensional artistic representation, socially engaged art, photography, 3-D printing, data visualization, fashion arts, media, robotics, urban design, architecture, political theories, and popular culture.
Join Queens-based artist, Caroline Wells Chandler, as he discusses his work in the exhibition From the Desert to the City: The Journey of Late Ancient Textiles. Stemming out of a 1970’s feminist craft history, Chandler’s brightly colored hand crocheted figures explore queerness and the art historical cannon. Chandler twists the language of folk by using the materials, processes, and the archetypes of conservative culture to create affirmational queer arenas.
