The mission of the O’Connor Art Gallery is to present the Dominican University academic community with timely, relevant and focused contemporary art exhibitions that foster critical and thoughtful dialogue across disciplines. Exhibitions are curated with the student body in mind, as they are meant to introduce students to new and innovative artistic concepts, practices and strategies. Located in Lewis Hall, steps from many of the art department’s studios and classrooms,the gallery is particularly accessible to art students as a space for intimate engagement and reflection. In addition to at least three curated exhibitions per year, the gallery is the site of an annual juried student show and senior thesis exhibitions. The gallery is located on the fourth floor of Lewis Hall and is open to the public during the academic year.

Opening Reception: Thursday, November 5, 4-7 pm Artist Panel: Thursday, November 5, 3-4 pm
The O’Connor Art Gallery is pleased to present Form Unbound, an exhibition featuring the work of Aimée Beaubien and Stacia Yeapanis. The opening reception for the exhibition will take place on Thursday, November 5 from 4-7pm, and will be preceded by a conversation with the artists at 3pm.
A visual feast, Form Unbound is an exhibition that challenges our perception of space and form through the highly intricate systems and structures created by artists Aimée Beaubien and Stacia Yeapanis. The complexity of each of their works is underscored by the artists’ interest in repetition, but more importantly reveals an art practice informed by multiple disciplines and sources. In fact, it is photographs, imagery from our mass-media culture, found objects, and other elements borrowed from the world around us that are interwoven in the work of Beaubien and Yeapanis. However, in their hands, these once recognizable images and objects are deconstructed and redefined only to be reassembled into beautifully, organic pieces for exploration and meditation.
