Gallery r, Rochester Institute of Technology’s metro showcase and learning laboratory for the arts, is hosting an upcoming group exhibition showcasing both the rigorous and creative research in the visual arts and imaging sciences.

“Delving In: Research, Scholarship & Creativity in the College of Imaging Arts & Sciences,” features the work of a faculty member, graduate student and undergraduate student from each of the six schools in RIT’s College of Imaging Arts and Sciences. The exhibition will take place from Feb. 5 to 21 at Gallery r, 100 College Ave. in downtown Rochester. A free reception, open to the public, is scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 5.

In addition, it includes the Image Permanence Institute, a recognized world leader in the development and deployment of sustainable practices for the preservation of images and cultural property.

“This exhibit provides a glimpse into the diverse activities that maintain the college’s mission—to inspire, innovate and educate in the fields where creativity and technology converge,” said John Aäsp, gallery director for CIAS.
