Painting Between the Lines: An Exploration of Literature and Poetry Through Watercolor by Miriam Hammer of Needham, Mass. Miriam Hammer ’14 is an interdepartmental major in English and Studio Arts who has incorporated her passion for poetry and lit- erature into her series by choosing her favorite literary compositions and illustrating them in calligraphy and meaning. Painting Between the Lines is a recent project of watercolor combined with charcoal, acrylic and ink. These paintings consist of poems by William Blake and Robert Frost, as well as quotations from many renowned au- thors, including Shakespeare, Toni Morrison, James Joyce and Kurt Vonnegut.

Also included will be Memoryscapes: An Exploration of Dig- ital Memories Through Mixed Media by Jennifer Taubes ’14 from Scarsdale, N.Y., who will be exhibiting “digiscapes,” a series of dig- ital images or landscapes that account for several personal experi- ences throughout her life. Jennifer Taubes is an interdepartmental major in English and Studio Arts with a concentration in Digital Media. The series explores how an interest in the use of words or typed and handwritten text combined with personal photos and land- scapes can evoke both personal and estranged feeling of connection.

Alyssa Rose Adler of Farmington, Conn., will be exhibiting a series of landscape paintings and steel sculptures titled An Explo- ration of American Identity: Landscape Painting and Steel Sculpture. Adler ’14 is a double concentration major with a focus in Art History and Studio Art. Her series explores American identity and where people come from through landscape paintings and sculp- tures of steel animals.

Diana Polanco ’14 is a Studio Fine Art major and Math minor from Providence, R.I. She is interested in architecture, and she will be exhibiting Surreal Architecture: Oil Painting and Drawing. Her series explores how we can see things differently than we do in our everyday lives.
