50th. Annual Student Exhibition

A juried exhibition highlighting the work of Bridgewater State University students.


The Western

The town of Bridgewater two years ago discovered a painting in one of the administration buildings; it was a Frank Tenney Johnson oil on canvas of a 'Trooper on Guard'. The painting in co-operation with Vose Gallery, Boston, was restored and is now being overseen by the Anderson Gallery for the town. In honoring the stewardship of the town in keeping this painting, the Anderson Gallery will present the The Western, an exhibition that brings together several other paintings by Johnson from the National Academy Museum, the New Jersey State Museum and the Rockwell Museum of Western Art.

Math and Art, Paper and Glass

“In the beginning we didn’t know what would be possible, but then we tried to push the limits and eventually found that everything could be made.”
- Erik Demaine, artist, excerpt from Between the Folds.

Erik Demaine of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will deliver the Abramson Colloquium "Algorithms Meet Art, Puzzles, and Magic." The lecture will take place on Sunday, April 6th at 2:00 p.m. in Conant 120.


Collection Focus

Paul Stopforth is a painter and graphic artist who works in oil, gouache, ink, charcoal, encaustic and lithography. He was inspired by the death of Black Consciousness leader Steve Biko in 1978; the artist created one of his most recognised works of art: The Interrogators. This series of work led to his exile from his native country of South Africa.


Shaun Bullens

Shaun Bullens has trained as a master woodworker and adheres to the craft traditions. His exhibition in the fall will feature finely made objects as exemplified by the work titled Anxious; two beautifully constructed wooden stands where one supports a tall birdcage and the other is pierced through by a tree branch. A small bird on a video screen inhabits each stand and flitters between freedom and captivity.
