) The Sordoni Art Gallery will open the exhibition, ROSALYN RICHARDS: Recent Works on Tuesday, August 28, with an artist’s reception on Friday, August 31, from 4-6 p.m. Artist, Rosalyn Ricahrds will be in attendance at the reception. The exhibition will be on view through Sunday, October 21, 2012.
This exhibition features large-format graphite or ink drawings as well as etchings by highly regarded artist Rosalyn Richards, professor of art at Bucknell University.
Rosalyn Richard’s work concerns human perception and understanding of nature with a focus on the relationship between what is seen and technological means of imaging nature being central to her work.
“Some drawn images seem to depict expanding cellular forms, and some suggest an inner world of mysterious forces and events, the beginning or end of a transformative process. The perceived scale of the images could range from the microscopic world of cell mutation. There are various associations and interpretations connected to the work, and the images can be seen as metaphors for the human impulse to search for meaning” according to the artist.
The Sordoni Art Gallery is open to the public and is located at 150 South River Street in the Stark Learning Center on the Wilkes University campus. The Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday, from 12 noon to 4:30 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 570-408-4325.
