The String Room Gallery of Wells College is pleased to announce the opening of "Life as Clouds," a group exhibition juried and curated by the students in the Professional Practices in Visual Arts course.

All are welcome to the gallery for a public reception on Thursday, Feb. 24, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and light refreshments will be served. The exhibition will remain on view until Friday, March 11. Hours are by appointment at the current time. Please note that all individuals are required to wear masks indoors on the College's campus.

"Life As Clouds" explores emergent themes among artworks by 18 regionally-based artists in celebration of the place we call home: the ancestral lands of the Haudenosaunee, in upstate New York. Collectively, these artworks evoke questions about the connection between our human bodies and nature. Through various modalities and media, the artists explore eddies and currents existing in between our creations of self and our conceptions of the world around us.

The exhibit features the work of Mara Baldwin, Amanda Besl, Mia Brown-Seguin, Erin Connolly, Ash Ferlito, Mia Hause, Julie Harrison, Miranda Javid, Travis Johns, Shayna Kiblin, Lily LaGrange, Cecelia Lu, Kym McDaniel, Grace Sachi Troxell, Dan Torop, Paulina Velázquez Solís, Hannah Washburn, and Layla Zubi.
