Meet WIP: Class of 2021-22

Meet WIP: Class of 2021-22

Work in Progress (or WIP) is a semester-long visual arts program and meet-up introducing advanced art techniques to local high school students through a series of workshops and studio sessions led by practicing artists. During WIP, students conceptualize and create original artwork utilizing skills developed at weekly workshops and curate a group exhibition of their work which is professionally displayed in HP Galleries.

Our recent WIP program ran from October 2021 – February 2022, with their culminating exhibition, Vaguely Familiar, on view from Feb 8-25, 2022. To wrap up this year, several participating students created profiles highlighting themselves, their passions, and what inspires their work so you could meet WIP!

Vaguely Familiar
February 8 – 25, 2022

Vaguely Familiar, a multimedia exhibition, explores themes of a fantastical reality. Incongruities. Magic. Discarded normalcy. The overgrown path. Traverse the haunting images of pinhole photography, fantastical tufted rugs, felted structures, odd and unusual screen prints, and a multitude of other mediums. Supported by the 2022 Work In Progress program, a series of workshops dedicated to letting high school artists from the area explore not only new mediums but themselves, Vaguely Familiar invites you to step into the Holland Project Gallery and redefine your idea of reality.
