This exhibition showcases the work of six artists whose innovative painting in watercolor defies conventional notions about this challenging medium. Surprising in scale, subject matter and approach, these paintings offer fresh investigations into an artistic medium whose expressive power and beauty is often underestimated.

This exhibition features photography shot in and around Rome, Italy by Visual & Performing Arts faculty member, John Garton in 2017. Having lived in Italy and returning frequently to conduct art history research, Professor Garton offers images of time counted in millennia and in minutes. Holding the lens of the straniero, or foreigner, Garton records daily images of light, sometimes falling on Emperor Hadrian’s villa and other times on shiny Fiats, modern routines, and the rituals of conversation.

New York City based artist (and former adjunct faculty member at Clark University), Gregory Thielker, will create an interdisciplinary exhibition dealing with the topic of “The Wall” and the tensions surrounding the border territory between the United States and Mexico. The symbolism of “Wall” and the messages it conveys – even as an abstract construct – will be addressed in this installation of small paintings, a large-scale mural, and artifacts from Thielker’s travels along the border. The artist states, “The exhibit is meant to ask questions about the border and its impact on individual experience and national identity.”
