This year the Calvin College (106) Gallery presents "indefinite boundaries," an exhibition of nine female artists dealing with place, environment and material.

indefinite boundaries, the exhibition this year at the (106) Gallery for Artprize 2011, features the work of nine female artists who deal with ideas of place and the environment. The artists are not in collaboration with each other, but their concepts – ranging from geographical environment to the mapping of memories, tie in with elements of home, safety, and community.The show includes painting, drawing, collage, fiber, video installation and a live-streaming performance.

(106) Gallery is a gallery year round, so during ArtPrize, it continues to exhibited a curated grouping of pieces whose concepts and materiality overlap or dialogue with one another in a cohesive way. A common misconception is that the gallery only shows work by Calvin students or alumni. While the gallery often exhibits student artwork during the academic school year, it is exhibiting local, national, and international artists – some related to Calvin, but most not. During ArtPrize, it is open every day during official exhibition center hours.

(106) Gallery is located at 106 S. Division, in the Heartside Neighborhood, just a few blocks south of the new UICA building. The facility is operated by the Calvin College Department of Art and Art History and houses faculty studios in addition to the gallery. Throughout the year, exhibitions embrace faculty, student and community artwork. The 106 building also houses artist lofts and is part of the Avenue for the Arts project initiated by Dwelling Place.
