On Friday, Sept. 11, the HWS art department is sponsoring an opening reception for an exhibit by Susan Daykin in the new Davis Gallery at Houghton House.
Daykin has been likened to artist Jackson Pollock, who filled his canvases to bursting. However, unlike Pollock, she captures images and things endlessly produced by our society. Her work has been called arresting and original.
A professor of fine arts at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City, Daykin earned a BFA from Washington University, St. Louis and an MFA from Indiana University.
Her work is featured in the Peter Rose Gallery in New York City, which handles sculptures, paintings, mixed media, photography, prints, lithographs and etchings from renowned artists such as Clement Meadmore, Marjorie Portnow, Bozidar Kemperle, Roy Schatt and Norman Rockwell.
The exhibit will run until Friday, Oct. 24. The opening reception will be held Friday, Sept. 11 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Davis Gallery. Refreshments will be provided. All are invited.
