From mid November – December and from mid March – May each year, artists in their final semester at Hampshire experiment with form and conceptual propositions in a series of small group exhibitions.
This MFA-style program is a supportive and rigorous experience for undergraduate students which provides a foundation in curatorial and professional practice for artists. Students in this program are currently mentored by the Gallery Alumni Fellow.

For Current or Upcoming Division III Students:

A Div III Exhibition in the Hampshire College Art Gallery is ideal for Arts or Arts-Adjacent students who are wanting to build their artistic professional practice and curatorial skills and whose work would benefit from a strongly visual form of public dissemination and display. The Gallery is a flexible professional space that can accommodate a wide range of mediums. Students who want to exhibit their work should be prepared to a commit spending a significant portion of their time to developing and curating their shows. This is a rich and intensive process that requires planning, deep intentionality, and the cultivation of useful new skills.
For a guide to various aspects of curating and installing your exhibition, hosting receptions and more, please consult the Gallery Handbook and Gallery Floorplan. Students can make appointments for consultations with the Gallery Alumni Fellow, and are encouraged to meet with their committees in the Gallery space to discuss curation of their work.

Div III gallery exhibition preference is given to studio arts and film/photo students as this process often forms a large part of their formal evaluation, but there are sometimes spaces available for other students whose projects are suited towards an exhibition format.
