Michele Kishita: Homeland

The Drawing Room Gallery

Liberal Arts Adjunct Assistant Professor, Academic Advisor and alumna Michele C. Kishita BFA '97 (Painting), MFA '10 (Painting) is exhibiting six of her recent paintings in the group exhibit "Homeland: Contemporary Approaches to Contemplating the Landscape."

Kishita and the other featured artists Darthea Cross (Maynard, Mass.), Chris Macan (Newtown Square, Pa.), Jeremy Saladyga (New Fairfield, Conn.), and Cameron Schmitz (Brattleboro, Vt.) reveal their own distinctive approaches to interpreting the landscape and together present intriguing juxtapositions of photographic and painterly approaches to the subject. Departing from the traditional notions and representations of the landscape, each artist’s work conveys a unique perspective that embodies some surprising and unexpected results. Their contemplative and personal visions of the landscape provide the viewer with metaphors for memory, utopia and the ever-changing global ecology. "Homeland" offers a rich subject for contemplating the ways that we relate to place and how we as humans impact the varied environments that we traverse and inhabit.

Reception: Saturday, February 2, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.

Above: "Spring Thaw," 50 x 54 inches.
