Jennifer Williams’ large-scale site-responsive photographic installations are visual interpretations of urban morphology evident from a pedestrian viewpoint within specific neighborhoods. Through layered compositions she addresses the non-linearity of physical change in modern cities.
In conjunction with the 40th annual New York African Studies Association (NYASA) Conference, to be held at Union College April 3rd, 2015, the Wikoff Student Gallery presents an exhibition of photography by Union students and alumni who have participated in term abroad programs and Minerva Fellowships in Eqypt, Ethiopia, Senegal, South Africa, and Uganda.
Haiga is a unique genre of art, which began in Japan, combining painting, poetry (haiku), and calligraphy. “Composing a haiga painting is a way to emphasize the power and the content of haiku poetry because each word has the force of a brush stroke. To juxtapose poetry and painting in the same space is a challenge for any artist. Both for painting and poetry we need harmony, contrast, rhythm, accents, ideas, emotion, and expressiveness.”
