Gallery Exhibition: Hon Eui Chen - After the Sun 

Joan and Robert Rechnitz Hall - 9 AM

Born in a refugee camp on the Thai-Cambodia border, Hon Eui Chen moved to Mississippi at the age of six. Growing up in the American South, while still trying to preserve memories of her childhood in Asia brought up questions about identity that influence her work. The concept of travel and memory are also embedded in her current series of mixed media paintings – layered earthy, dark colored background with graphite drawn trees and foliage and an overlay of concrete. Lecture: January 29, 4:30 - 5:30 pm, Wilson Hall Auditorium. Opening Reception: January 29 5:30 - 7 pm
