The University Art Gallery is pleased to announce that the artist, Marguerite White, has created a light and shadow installation called, Port Of Entry, inside its gallery. The installation will be on view from November 10 through January 12. 

Marguerite White holds an undergraduate degree from Rhode Island School of Design and a graduate degree from the University of Texas in Austin. She was artist in residence in Glouchester, earlier this year and just completed a wall mural on the State Pier of New Bedford as part of a public art program administered by the University Art Gallery and AHA! (Art, History, Architecture) with funding from the City of New Bedford and the Massachusetts Cultural Council. 

The installation is a project of the New Bedford Cabinet of Natural History, and can be seen as a commentary on, and a tribute to, the seafaring individuals and nations, whose sense of adventure, fanaticism, scientific curiosity, greed, and search for the Other in the primitive, and for the culturally superior in the Far East, has defined who we are today. 

The University Art Gallery is located in the renovated Star Store in downtown New Bedford on 715 Purchase Street. Hours are daily from 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
