Haiga is a unique genre of art, which began in Japan, combining painting, poetry (haiku), and calligraphy. It appears as an intimate, small painting made for a page of an album, a sketch made on a fan that you can give to a friend, or a painting made on a very small piece of paper that you can present to a dear person. Haiga is like a musical miniature: an impromptu or a nocturne of Chopin.
The Mandeville Gallery is pleased to welcome the works of 26 student artists for this year’s Student Invitational. The exhibition features a selection of student artwork from this academic year, and includes works in a variety of media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and digital art and film.
This exhibition touches on developments in my work over a span of 25 years. It is not a retrospective in the usual sense of the word because most of the work was completed in the last three years, and I continue to produce art, sometimes reconfiguring earlier compositions. Time takes on a meaning that differs from standard intervals. Tenses constantly shift.
Celebrating the humanities and the newly renovated Karp Hall, the Mandeville Gallery presents a three-part exhibition exploring intersections between the humanities and the visual arts during winter term 2015.
