Dog Summer: Young Alumni 2018

Humboldt State University (HSU) Third Street Gallery presents, Dog Summer: Young Alumni -2018, on exhibit from July 1 through September 2. The exhibition features works by the 2018 graduates from Humboldt State’s Art Department.

Annually, HSU Third Street Gallery exhibits the creative work of these ambitious artists as they transition from their art studies into their professional careers. The Dog Summer: Young Alumni-2018 exhibition presents the work of 33 graduates whose art includes a wide variety of media and talent. This exhibition reflects the breadth of courses offered at the university including media areas such as motion graphics, sculpture, jewelry, painting, photography, graphic design, printmaking, and ceramics.

“The new alumni participating in this show have all developed to a point where their craft has approached a professional level,” states Third Street Gallery Director Jack Bentley.  “These participants demonstrate tangible evidence of artistic accomplishment. Crucial to their success, however, is an intangible quality they share—a dedication and commitment to making art as a way of life informed by aesthetic and intellectual engagement with their work.”

Upon entering the gallery, visitors will encounter a number of pieces of art by these graduates that have garnered awards and prizes.  These annual prizes, awards and scholarships are either underwritten or endowed by generous community members who support the educational mission of the Art Department at Humboldt State.

After over 20 years of exhibitions, this will be the last scheduled show to be presented by HSU Third Street Gallery.  In April of this year Humboldt State University announced that it will close the gallery in September.

HSU First Street Gallery opened in Eureka, California in 1998 to provide hands-on experiences for students and as a public service, bringing free exhibitions to California’s North Coast community.  In 2016, the gallery was relocated to Third Street in Eureka and renamed HSU Third Street Gallery. During its 20-year history the gallery’s exhibitions have focused on contemporary arts, and featured artists from the local area as well as national and international artists.

Annually, the gallery would also present ongoing exhibition series that were interdisciplinary in nature, which variously addressed the subjects of social justice, diversity, the Earth's environment, its natural resources, environmental responsibility and action.  The exhibitions were able to attract many visitors each year, and they were especially popular during monthly “Arts Alive!” events. After the gallery closes, the space may be used to serve students in other ways for the duration of the lease.
