On Saturday, July 24, 2010, from 7-9pm, Hamiltonian Gallery will open an introductory group exhibition of these five new Fellows. Each artist will be displaying the work with which they were accepted. The exhibition will run from July 24 - September 4, 2010. Please join us!

The five new 2010 So-Hamiltonian Fellows were selected from a pool of over 130 very promising applicants this year. Hamiltonian Artists brought together seven incredibly acclaimed art professionals to comprise the External Review Panel. The External Review Panel caucused together, and evaluated every application based on criteria regarding technical merit, originality and relevance to today’s art world. Panelists were also asked to discuss how well they thought the applicant would benefit from the program that Hamiltonian provides.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the panelists for their generosity and enthusiastic support of this endeavor:

Dadi Akhavan - Art Patron and Collector
Dawn Gavin - Artist, Associate Professor at University of Maryland
Rebecca Jones - Director of Project 4 Gallery
Vivienne M. Lassman - Independent Curator and Art Advisor
Maggie Michael - Artist
Jamie Smith - Art Historian and Co-Founder of Conner Contemporary
