PHOTO STORY: Treat Gallery is pleased to present its inaugural show: “#NAILEDIT”, a juried group exhibition featuring work by artists working in administrative or technical positions in higher education. Often underrated, forgotten and left out, techs and administrative assistants can be the driving force behind a student’s success. While adjunct pools expand and tenure becomes extinct, technician jobs increase for overqualified MFA-holding candidates.
