Chambersburg, Pa. — Wilson College will host an exhibition of artwork by students of Hagerstown Community College’s Department of Visual Arts, beginning Feb. 12. The exhibition, presented by Wilson’s Division of Art & Letters, will continue through March 10 in the Bogigian Gallery, located on the second floor of Lortz Hall.

The exhibition features works of art from current visual arts students at Hagerstown Community College (HCC) and includes drawings, paintings, and photographs. HCC and Wilson are partnering to provide opportunities to students seeking growth in their disciplines and an exhibition venue outside Hagerstown. The exhibition also provides a professional experience for those students wishing to transfer to Wilson or other four-year institutions. Both programs offer degrees in visual art, graphic design, and web design. The partnership between the colleges works well for those students wishing to further their education and matriculate to Wilson College to earn a bachelor’s degree. 

HCC and Wilson College work with students to develop broad disciplinary skill sets, content knowledge, and critical and creative thinking skills to prepare tomorrow’s leaders for the challenges of a complex world. The exhibition celebrates institutional collaboration, student scholarship, and artistic voice. 

The Bogigian Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Admission is free. All visitors must comply with Wilson’s COVID-19 safety protocols, including wearing a face mask covering the mouth and nose and maintaining safe social distances at all times on our campus.
