World and Wings

Nov 2 to Dec 4

Wanda Sullivans' paintings are conceptually based on landscapes, landscape principles and a concern for climate change. She strives for a conglomeration of weather, light, color and texture; all combined into an abstract pictorial space containing vague references to organic and fundamental landscape characteristics such as horizon lines. She uses circles to allude to the world or remains of worlds.

Photographic Stories told from The Rwanda Orphanage Project

Rwands Exhibit j

Feb 16 to Mar 11

10:30am - 5:30pm
SCU Fine Arts Building Gallery

The photographs in this exhibition are featured works produced by several students at Rwanda Orphanage Project in Kigali, Rwanda. After composing  their self-portraits and hand-coloring their prints, each student crafted a sentence in Kinyarwanda (their native language) that compared a dominant part of their body to another object. Several students chose to liken their features to that of an animal while one student compared his back to several hip hop artists.
