Tara Penick (BA ’12) and Jorge Sánchez (BFA ’13) are featured in the upcoming 2015 Wheaton Biennial: Photography Beyond The Frame exhibition, which will officially open on Wednesday, March 4th at the Beard & Weil Galleries at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts.

Wheaton College cultivates an open spirit of inquiry with a curriculum emphasizing connections across disciplinary boundaries. The 2015 Wheaton Biennial includes the works of photographers whose work reflects a similar spirit of inquiry and a critical reflection on what constitutes the boundaries of the medium in today’s art world. The Beard & Weil Galleries are a vital part of Wheaton’s creative and intellectual life. Exhibitions feature work by contemporary artists in all media, as well as works from Wheaton’s extensive Permanent Collections, spanning ancient Greece to contemporary South Africa. The Galleries’ educational mission encompasses all forms of creative expression in an effort to forge meaningful connections between objects and their histories, student and faculty creative work, art historical research, and critical thinking. The crucial role the visual arts play in a liberal arts education is central to the design and focus of its exhibitions. Photography Beyond The Frame and its corresponding events have been made possible by the generous support of the Wheaton College Friends Of Art. (Source: Beard & Weil Galleries at Wheaton College)
