Hopkins Center for the Arts Exhibition Opening Reception
Thursday, June 23, 2022
Join the Hopkins Center for the Arts for the opening reception of three new art exhibitions.
Jean Hawton & Shelby Meyerhoff 'Beyond & Bizarre: Natural Illusions'
A playful duet of two artists inspired by the natural world. Jean Hawton transforms women's wearables into surprising new expressions for her wardrobe, while Shelby Meyerhoff transforms herself into new creatures. Both artists approach their work as surrealists, provoking not only curiosity but also insights into the nature of self.
Angie Huffman 'Dear'
Painter Angie Huffman renders scenes from generally unremarkable life events that bring her joy when she first sees them. Though mundane, they call to her with a harmonious balance of composition and color. Quiet and wordless, these events imply undefined visual narratives and ask for further consideration.
Nishiki Sugawara-Beda 'To Your Own Space: Truthful Peace'
Nishiki Sugawara-Beda was born and raised in Japan, where all schoolchildren learn calligraphy. This craft provides the foundation and inspiration for her practice. She uses calligraphy as an entrance point to understand her own culture and to recognize the existence of underlying meanings in all forms -- language, images, even the mundane interactions of being.
The exhibitions are on display at the Art Center June 23 through July 30, 2022.
