Alisa Sikelianos-Carter’s large-scale, mixed media paintings depict an other-worldly sphere “where Blackness is a manifestation of the divine.” Against atmospheric, cosmic skyscapes, Sikelianos-Carter places what she calls, “Future Ancestors,” deity-like and stoic figures, strong in both size and presence.
Union College junior Dhea Kothari’s oil paintings honor the history of Indian miniature painting, while telling the story of her generation through political examinations of contemporary Indian society.
Now accepting artwork entries from all Union College students, faculty, staff, and alumni for the exhibition LGBTQ+ in 2020: OUR Voices Matter. Accepted artworks will be exhibited in the Nott Memorial in the Wikoff Student Gallery during the Fall 2020 term, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the women’s right to vote and the 50th anniversary of women at Union College, as well as the Presidential Election in November. To celebrate this momentous synchronicity, this year’s exhibition hopes to focus on LGBTQ+ rights and legislation, as well as spotlight transgender youth.
This Spring Term, the Visual Arts department will be exhibiting student artwork in the Mandeville Gallery, while the Visual Arts building renovation is completed. Please check their website for updates regarding events during this time.
