We hosted two events for “Pacific Pictures: Student Work from the Carleton College Seminar in the South Pacific“ today: a lunchtime gallery talk and an opening reception in the late afternoon.  Fred Hagstrom, Professor of Art at Carleton College led the gallery talk where he discussed the experience of this studio art seminar in New Zealand and Australia from 1996-2007. He talked about the intensity of the seminar: eating three meals a day with the 26 students for 10 consecutive weeks. They took many excursions which brought them to many parks and parts of the country that were far distances from cities.  A major part of the seminar was also working in rented printshops for the duration of the trip, but the heart of the seminar seemed to be deeply rooted in the process of keeping a sketchbook.

In the afternoon, we had an opening reception where many Carleton alumni gathered in addition to people from the Wellesley College Community.
