Liminal is an exhibition featuring works created by the Spring 2020 Portfolio Preparation Class.

Over the course of 15 weeks, each member of this advanced photography class crafts a portfolio dedicated to a single topic of personal importance. Students work individually and as a team critiquing their photographs, reworking original ideas, and questioning and discovering which techniques and aesthetic choices are most effective in conveying their concepts.

This March, seven weeks into this process, Portfolio Prep students, and much of the world, began the practice of social distancing. Using skills cultivated through their artistic practice and studies, the class adapted to their new parameters and forged onward. The communal aspects of the course, critical to portfolio development, continued in the digital realm. The positive energy and drive of the students persisted.

A typical semester in Portfolio Preparation ends with a capstone exhibition in Tunxis’ Barnes-Franklin Gallery. This was not a typical semester. We have chosen to celebrate the achievements of the class with a virtual exhibition in Tunxis’ Gallery in the Cloud. This moment is simply an in-between point on our journey. We look forward to the moment we can stand together and celebrate these achievements. Until then, we will celebrate in this liminal space. After all, capstone exhibitions are always intermediate moments between the now and the next big adventure. We optimistically await what is to come.
