Dec. 10-Jan. 15: Tear Drop exhibit

FREDERICK, Md.—An artist who has studied internationally and whose work has been published and featured in exhibits along the east coast will display her work in Hood College’s Whitaker Campus Center Gallery Dec. 10-Jan. 15.

In her “Tear Drop” exhibit, Susan Jamison embellishes and augments found objects and uses crafting techniques such as sewing and embroidery to create poetic, symbolic forms that are feminist social commentary. The exhibit is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and there will be a reception Dec. 10 from 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Jamison is a visual artist who paints in egg tempera and creates sculptural forms and installations that focus on feminine subject matter. Her allegorical paintings of women and animals are drawn from personal narratives, myths, folk tales and dreams. Her recent sculptural work is primarily textile based. She holds a master of fine arts in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design. Her distinctly feminine imagery has been exhibited in museums and galleries nationwide, including solo exhibitions at the Taubman Museum of Art, William King Museum of Art, Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art and Second Street Gallery.
