The word home can have myriad associations for each person, but on a broad archetypal level, home conjures the realm of domestic life, a household with various members, a secure dwelling, private space, and a place of sanctuary and refuge. Home also can be seen as existing in concentric circles  the initial ring being that which encircles the individual and members of a household most closely  whether it be a private house, communal residence, apartment, dormitory, or temporary shelter  followed by larger circles of hometown and ever expanding associations with region, nationality, and identity.
To feel at home suggests a sense of belonging and comfort. But, of course, it is quite possible not to feel at home in ones actual domicile or physical location and the concept of home may feel elusive or precarious depending on life circumstances, geography, and politics. The artists in this exhibition offer various perspectives on this universal longing for home - the quest for a sense of safety, peace, acceptance, and well-being. Some of the work confronts issues of displacement and loss, while other pieces depict the simple pleasures of domestic life and the careful construction of personal space. The potency of everyday objects and the memories they trigger are also a focus of investigation. And a few of these artists play on sentimental or cliché associations of home. Though the stories are often personal, the themes are universal.
This was a juried show in response to an open call. The artists included come from all over New England and range from graduate student to well-established and renowned professional.
This exhibition was curated and installed by the students in ARTS 296 Gallery Culture and Practice, a problems of practice course, in which students explore opportunities to connect what they learn in the classroom with issues and matters faced by professionals working beyond the campus. Those students are: Madison Boardman, Maria Escobar Pardo, Katlyn Greger, Grant Henry, Celine Hunt, Autumn Perez, Aliyah Rawat, F. N. U. Rouran, Andrea Schuster, Andre Toribio, and Amy Yeager.

Artists:Joan Baldwin, Nina Bellucci, Joan Benotti, Jennifer Day, Jenna DeLuca, Matthew Dickey, Erin Diebboll, Gary Duehr, Kevin Frances, Jan Johnson, Kelly Anona Kerrigan, Carol McMahon, Evan Morse, Chelsea Revelle, Soha Saghazadeh, Brittany Severance, Dawn Southworth.

DNA: A Play by Dennis Kelly
Tuesday, 3/21/2017 - Saturday, 3/25/2017 7:30 PM-9:00 PM
Little Center, Michelson Theater - Free with College I.D. $5.00 for the Public
Everyone is in high school. They do something bad. No, really bad. They were just kidding around. Really. Not bullying exactly. Just like a game, sort of. Adam seemed to be enjoying it as much as anybody. Until he didn't. We were just having a laugh. But now, Adam is gone. "What are we going to do?"

Sometimes comedy has the power to look deeper than anything else into our cultural shadow.To see where attention must be paid. You might be laughing but you are also staring into the abyss of our lost connections to the cosmos, each other, and even ourselves. DNA by Dennis Kelly is one such comedy. Directed by: Raymond Munro
