Berkeley College opened its new Gallery at Woodland Park with a reception and exhibit titled “Emergence – Student Works on Paper,” on Thursday, October 15, 2015.  The exhibit showcases the works of more than 50 students and alumni from the Graphic Design and Interior Design degree programs. Examples of student work includes computer enhanced photography, conceptual and animated interior residential and commercial designs, illustrations that bring consumer goods to life, and many others developed through introductory and advanced level courses.

Lenore Molee, Dean of the Berkeley College School of Professional Studies, welcomed an audience of more than 100 guests. “The Gallery is for the students and by the students. The ingenuity and artistry of our faculty and students will be on display in this unique exhibition space for all to see,” said Dean Molee, who noted that The Gallery is open to the public. “This gives students the added ability to present their work in an exhibition space, and include this experience in their resumes and portfolios.” 

“The Gallery at Woodland Park continues our renaissance,” said Linda Pinsky-Mauro, Berkeley College Campus Operating Officer, Woodland Park. “This newly renovated space serves as a design center and focal point for the Graphic Design and Interior Design degree programs of Berkeley College and is on par with a world-class gallery you would find in New York City.” 

The Gallery, which comprises 1,800 square feet of exhibit and presentation space, as well as advanced Mac and PC open design lab technology, is part of a design center created for Berkeley College Interior Design and Graphic Design students to showcase their work in a professional setting.

“The students benefit because they are able to meet with industry representatives in this professional setting to present and discuss their works in preparation for securing internships and permanent positions,” said Brian Maher, Berkeley College Vice President, Career Services.

Visit: The Gallery at Woodland Park will be open through the fall season during regular college hours: Mondays through Fridays, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
