Morrissey Gallery - "Places Seen and Unseen"

08/12/2019 - 09/21/2019
Morrissey Gallery, Galvin Fine Arts Center

Over the past years, Ackerman has become inspired by the diversity of Earth's plants and living organisms. She uses watercolor to paint internal landscapes and biomorphic abstractions, focusing on ethereal aspects of nature like leaves, seeds, eggs, sprouts, rain, wind and waves. 

Her watercolor painting "Places Seen and Unseen" can be found at the Morrissey Gallery in the lobby of the Galvin Fine Arts Center.

On Wednesday, Sept. 11 a Question and Answer will begin at 4 p.m., followed by a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Galvin Fine Arts Center.
