Homeland Scrolls: Photographic Works by Sandra Matthews on View at Smith College

NORTHAMPTON, Mass.—A series of large-scale, black-and-white photographic collages combining layers of landscape imagery with words will be on view at the Oresman Gallery, Hillyer Hall, through Nov. 30. The exhibition, titled “Homeland Scrolls,” by Sandra Matthews, is free and open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

“A ‘homeland’ is a place, mythical or literal, to which one might feel an emotional attachment. In the ‘Homeland Scrolls,’ I am trying to reclaim a sense of the multiple histories, many of them painful, most of them buried or forgotten, that belong to any landscape available to human view,” said Matthews.

Matthews’ work has been exhibited in Boston, New York City, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Los Angeles and Florence (Italy) and has been represented in collections including the Smith College Art Museum, Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, Portland Art Museum (Oregon) and the Women In Photography International Archive at Yale University.
She is an associate professor of film and photography at Hampshire College.
