Holmes Hall 103

the 103 room

the 103 (exhibition space)

The 103 is a teaching exhibition space run by the faculty of Art & Art History that acts as the extension of various art pedagogies and exhibits artwork from a diverse group of professional and student artists. The space creates exhibition and curatorial opportunities for students, faculty and invited arts community professionals. The main goal of the space is to support the pedagogy of the Department of Art & Art History and the education of Bucknell students towards deepening the curriculum taught in the department. 

The space exhibits artworks from a wide range of concepts, styles, media and a diversity of artists whose work informs, inspires and challenges. 

The space fulfills its mission by serving as a laboratory for thought-provoking exhibitions;  displaying both end result and process, and generating critical discussion. 

The 103 exhibition space is located on the first floor of Holmes Hall. 

While we welcome submissions for consideration, we recommend that prior to submitting you consider the 103 Exhibition Space’s mission and current and past exhibitions in order to determine whether your submission is a match with our program. 103 Exhibition Space shows are closely tied to the Department of Art and Art History’s curriculum and education needs, and are typically planned several years in advance. We do not accept actual works of art for consideration.

For the past two years Mark Mahosky has been working on a series of small paintings and sculptures incorporating a vocabulary of ships, trees, flowers, planes, distant smoke, and ghostly figures.

His work incorporates these images to comment on the current state of politics in the US by alluding to similar moments in the history of empires, nations, and other forms of perceived power. Historical consciousness of art, culture, and events has been a steady component in Mahosky's art for over 30 years. Mahosky has shown nationally and has been represented by the Fleisher/Ollman Gallery in Philadelphia since 1986. He is a professor of painting at Kutztown University and resides in both Mifflinburg and Kutztown.
