Student Artwork Gains Exposure at RISD Exposé
With November temperatures this year soaring up into the 70s, it's hard to believe the holiday season is well on its way. But for the RISD students who have put together this year's Exposé, the festive season has already begun.

For the third year running, the pop-up gallery and gift shop is entirely juried, curated, planned and publicized by a team of students (Cynthia Chang 12 SC, Paige Silverman 12 SC, Philippe Dwyer 12 GD, Alex Boberg 12 PT, Emma Safir 12 PR, Kate Harkness 13 FAV, Hallie Bean 12 GD, Sarah Lammer 13 PR, Allison Boesch 12 IL) with support from RISD's Center for Student Involvement.
Founded in 2009 byKellie Riggs 11 JM and Misha Kahn 11 FD as a venue for students to show and sell their work to the local Providence community without the boundaries of a traditional gallery, this year's show features fine art and design work by over 70 RISD students in almost every department, both for browsing and for sale. A catalogue of the show is coming soon.
For more information, visithttp://risd.cc/expose11 or just stop by the gallery before it closes on December 1.
