Local business exhibits student art

The Study at Yale—a hotel on Chapel Street across from the School of Art’s Green Hall—recently created an art gallery in its lobby as a venue for School of Art students to display their work. The Aisling Gallery—aisling is the Gaelic word fordream or vision—will show the work of one student at a time for a period of six weeks each. The hotel will also hold opening night receptions for each artist and provide each a $250 credit voucher at Hull’s Art Supply store.

Works by emeritus professor on view at Whitney Center

An exhibition at the Whitney Humanities Center features works on paper by American artist William Bailey ’55BFA, ’57MFA, the Kingman Brewster Professor Emeritus of Art. Bailey is a widely exhibited American figurative painter known especially for his still lifes and portraits, which are painted entirely from memory or imagination. His works appear in collections worldwide, including those of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, and the National Museum of American Art in Washington, DC. Bailey studied with Josef Albers at Yale, was a professor of art from 1969 to 1995, and served as acting dean of the School of Art in the mid-1970s. “William Bailey Works on Paper” is on view through January 28.
