Artist Janice Jakielski’s show, “I Think I’ll Like it Here,” opens Tuesday, Nov. 12



On November 12 month marks the opening of Artist in Resident Janice Jakielski’s show, “I Think I’ll Like it Here.” The exhibit will showcase Jakielski’s playful and provocative sculptural work, which references notions of identity and place. 

Jakielski, who has lived in a Castle residence since the second week of September, has met with numerous student groups as part of her time here. Discussing both the specifics of her work, which focuses on sewn and embroidered headgear and other “wearable” objects, and the process of making art, Jakielski has introduced middle and upper school students to the realities of being a working artist.  She will move from the studio space in the Castle into Foster Gallery this first week of November as she prepares for the installation of her show.  She is looking forward to being even more accessible to members of the community as she moves into the gallery. This is the first year the visual arts department has housed an artist from outside the community in the Castle for a long-term residency program and the response to Jakielski’s presence has been overwhelming.

The opening for “I Think I’ll Like it Here” is Thursday, Nov. 14, from 5-7 pm.  The event will take place on a busy night for the arts: the Fall Arts Bonanza will be running through the evening, offering students and parents an opportunity to experience the Dance Ensemble performances at both 3 and 7 pm, open studio events in the Visual Arts Wing all afternoon and evening, and a memorable opening in the gallery with a remarkable artist and new member of the Nobles’ community.
