Common Experience Gallery Reception
The Gallery of the Common Experience hosted a reception Thursday, January 30.
The Honors College is home to the Gallery of the Common Experience, which features a new art exhibit each semester that connects to the overall theme of the year. This semester’s exhibit is Face Forward: Portraits of Emotional Exposure. Billi London-Gray is the curator of the Gallery of the Common Experience, and says that this semester is different than most.
“All of our exhibits deal with the Common Experience theme. This one is different in that it is all portraiture. We have both self portraits and portraits that artists have done of other people, and even a couple of ones for fictional characters.”

The Gallery’s reception had many of the artists from the displayed works there, as well as some surprise performance art. Senior Gallery committee member Isabella Wisinger says that each year the Gallery has gotten better.
“With this exhibit we got all different levels of talent. This one spans all artistic levels and has definitely been our best one so far.”
