Jennifer Rhone Fisher, Nina Leon, Xiaomeng Li, & Donny Scotland
April 28 - May 22, 2011
Four Wilson College seniors will host exhibitions of their art at area galleries during late April and May.
Students exhibiting art as part of their capstone exhibitions are Jennifer Rhone Fisher of Chambersburg, Nina Leon of Brooklyn, Xiaomeng Li of China and Donny Scotland of Scotland, Pa.
Fisher and Leon, who are majoring in studio art, will show their work from 5 to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 22 and 23, at Historic Preservation Services, 252 E. King St.
Fisher’s exhibition is entitled Becoming. Her art is an ongoing exploration of technique and color through paint to express her ideas and feelings, as influenced by her life experience and education in the liberal arts.
Leon’s exhibition, Cellophane, uses photography to illustrate a child’s life in New York City, sometimes in an uncomfortable narrative. Work is presented in chapters: Tourist New York, My New York, Addiction, Domestic Violence, Incarceration and Hope.
Li, who has a double major in studio art and mass communications, will presentYou Don’t Know Me from 4 to 6 p.m. Friday, April 22, at On What Grounds, 162 Lincoln Way East. The exhibition will run through April 27. She describes her exhibition of photographs as an enjoyable yet painstaking dialogue with herself as she tries to present her most natural traits and emotions at one specific moment.
Scotland, who is majoring in both studio art and environmental studies, will hold his exhibition from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday, April 21 through 23, on the upper floor of the Roy Pitz Brewery warehouse at 140 N. 3rd St. His exhibition is called Donny Scotland’s Muleland: Pho-What I Have So Far-to Album. His work explores photography through metaphor and irony with the use of a U.S. military utility vehicle known as a Mule, which is depicted in a variety of environments, as well as in scenes referencing art history and the Bible.
