Last issue, we reported that Charles Giuliano will be retiring from his position as director of the gallery at the New England School of Art and Design. The exhibition "Charles Giuliano: A Retrospective" opened this past week, and Charles was met with heartfelt goodbyes.
This week NESAD announced that James Manning will be taking over for Giuliano as gallery director. Manning has been assistant director for several years, and taken the lead on several exhibitions in the gallery.
Prior to NESAD, Manning has a long history in the arts of Boston. He was director of Gallery FX, one of the first in the SoWa complex, and later active at both Space 200 and Oni Gallery. He has also been busy behind the scenes in many of Boston's commercial and alternative galleries, working as an installer, curator, and general assistant for numerous projects and events.
Jim is also a regular contributor of photographs to Big RED & Shiny's On-The-Town section, and a member of the Institute for Infinitely Small Things.
We look forward to great shows he has planned, which include a group show curated by Hiroko Kikuchi and Alice Vogler (July 26th - August 25th), new work by John Powell (September 5th - October 10th), and paintings by Susan Nichter (October 11th - November 10th).
"Charles Giuliano: Last Call, a Retrospective" is on view May 18 to June 28, 2007 at NESAD.
