From Root to Sky: Sachiko Akiyama


Hollister Gallery
Exhibit on View: Now–May 19

Sachiko Akiyama’s work brings together artistic influences of Brancusi, Egyptian funerary sculptures, medieval Christian woodcarvings, and contemporary sculptors with the artist’s personal experiences and Japanese heritage, notably Japanese fairy tales. Her carvings convey a sense of centeredness and direct connections to nature that opens up the door to creation mythologies and other mystical possibilities. The figures’ relationships to flora, fauna, and the elements speak metaphorically to the ways we find meaning in our lives and meet the challenges of our surroundings.

Artists in Motion: Illustrations of Perilous Journeys

Art for Change by Eritrean Refugees

Exhibit on View:
June 1-September 7

September 7 at 5pm
Exhibition discussion with Project Founder, Angela Wells with reception to follow

Between two mountain ranges in Northern Eritrea, dozens of young Eritrean refugees spend their days making paintings that tell the stories of their experiences.  In their artworks, they are able to express their longing for lost loved ones, traumatic memories of persecution, and stories of their families and friends who have taken perilous journeys,  Mebratu, their 45 year-old teacher, provokes them to make art that inspires social change.
