The Copley Society of art and the Onyx Hotel have formed a partnership this year to help support the visual arts and the artist members within our community. At two recent art exhibitions, the 16th annual Student Show and the Manifest 2005 Exhibit, the Onyx Hotel presented their Emerging Artist Award worth $250 to Tim Kadish and Rick Legge, respectively.

Mark Fischer, GM of the Onyx Hotel, was responsible for choosing the winning artwork and had this to say, “In keeping with our hotel theme, we are excited to form an ongoing partnership with the Copley Society of art and are proud to host semi-annual exhibits at the Hotel that showcase work by Co/So artists.” The 16th Annual Student Show featured the work of art students across New England Co|So opens its membership to any art student, age 18 or over, studying full-time in an accredited visual arts program at the graduate or undergraduate level. It entitles young artists to a variety of benefits including exhibition and award opportunities, educational programs and assistance in their professional development.

Now in its 8th installment, the purpose of the biennial Manifest exhibition is threefold: to provide a valuable exhibition opportunity to a diverse group of New England artists; to introduce a new group of artists to Co|So and its patrons; and to affirm Co|So's commitment to contemporary art in New England. Artwork for this exhibition was selected based on its success in communicating an aspect of Boston, whether through content, style, or the diversity of the artists themselves.
