Worcester Gallery to Showcase ‘Degree of Overlap’ Assumption Student Art Exhibit

The art of 18 recent Assumption College graduates will be exhibited in June at the Sprinkler Factory Gallery, 38 Harlow St. The collection, Degree of Overlap, contains over 60 pieces of mixed media art, including crochet, graphic design, illustration, oil paintings, photography, Raku pottery, typography, video installation and visual illusions. An opening reception will be held Saturday, June 7, from 6 to 8 p.m., and will feature live music by Aaron DiBiasio and free refreshments.

The graduates—all members of Assumption’s Class of 2014, which graduated May 17—majored in studio art and/or graphic design. Their final projects—started in January and completed in April—comprise the exhibit, which will run June 7-28. The gallery is open weekends from noon to 4 p.m.
