JUNE EVENTS

Jun. 2 - Jul. 2 ART EXHIBITION: 

"Chinese Mojo," an exhibition of works by Bibiana Huang Matheis, will be on display from 1 to 4 p.m., Tuesday through Thursday, through July 2, in the Art Gallery of the Visual and Performing Arts Center on the WCSU Westside campus, 43 Lake Ave. Extension in Danbury. There will be an Opening Reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 4, in the gallery. Matheis is a Chinese-American immigrant woman, artist and photographer. The work in her exhibition is an autobiographical expression that makes use of symbolism and expressionism, creating a visual tapestry and treasure box, where the story is unveiled through each of her photographs. Many images feature family members and the creative tendencies in her ancestry, such as her father's calligraphy and her grandmother's painting. Through her artwork she confronts her own cultural heritage and the struggles faced as an immigrant. For more information, visit www.wcsu.edu/newsevents/Chinese-Mojo-exhibition.asp.
