    Jeanne Williamson | UNDER COLOR

    As the HBI Artist-in-Residence, Jeanne Williamson worked on site to create a series of Jewish wedding canopies, or chuppot. Using common construction fencing as her template, Williamson draws inspiration from this material and its grid-like patterns. Her process incorporates painting, simple printmaking techniques and stitching to achieve vivid color and texture. Visually and conceptually linking the “protected area” of an urban building site with the symbolic protection of the wedding canopy, the chuppot on view offer a new interpretation of our relationship to our surroundings and the ritual of marriage.

    Opening Reception: April 23, 5-7 pm
