Ok really short notice for this, but the University of New Haven is holding an opening reception this afternoon for “Where Heaven Made Fun“, an exhibition by artist Nathan Lewis which features a number of paintings with Wes students in them – including “Till We Find the Blessed Isles Where Our Friends Are Dwelling” (the Washington Crossing the Delaware remake).
Among those depicted in the painting are Wesleying’s own Xue Sun ’08 and Xiaoxi Tu ’09, as well as Karimah Nichols ’09, Priya Ghosh ’09, Greg Silver ’09, and Jason Bigman ’10. Xue and Jason Bigman also appear in two other paintings in the show. And there’s an installation with a 17-foot-long sailboat.
If you missed the painting at Wes, you can head over to UNH until September 26th to check it and the rest of the show out.
