Art Exhibition by Alumna Kate Whittaker: Journeys and Visual Poems
Journeys, an exhibit of paintings by Kate Whittaker (AC 1990), reflect impressions formed during her climate research travels to remote areas of the world. Patterns form landscapes, marks conjure ancestral presence, and ancient calligraphy evokes a shared heritage. The process can involve forty or more layers of paint, while accents of micaceous paint illuminate and grow quiet with the changing light. Visual Poems, in traditional scroll format, are a natural offshoot of these layered paintings and combine details of her paintings and photographs to form narratives of their own. Open Monday - Friday, 9 a.m.
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Alumnae House Gallery, 33 Elm Street
