An entry from the 2018 exhibition by Wilson senior
Wendy Arispe called Boats.

The Foundry will host an exhibition of works by Wilson College studio art students at its 100 S. Main St. gallery space in downtown Chambersburg. The show, which will open Feb. 18 and run through March 10, will feature a meet-and-greet with the artists from 5 to 7 p.m. on March 1 during downtown's First Friday activities. The event and the exhibition are free and open to the public.

This exhibition is the third in a series of exhibits held as part of Wilson’s partnership with The Foundry, which began in 2016. A grass-roots, artist-led organization, The Foundry shares a similar vision and mission as that of Wilson College and its Division of Arts and Letters to promote critical and creative thinking through artistic exploration and expression, provide venues for the exhibition of creative works of art, and offer a framework for cultural expression of local and regional artists. Through the partnership, Foundry artists will have the opportunity to exhibit their artwork at Wilson in fall 2019.
