Aya Takashima’s “In Passing” exhibit will open Thursday, Feb. 26 with a reception and gallery talk from 4:30-8 p.m. at the Lycoming College Art Gallery, 25 W. Fourth Street, Williamsport. The exhibit, on display until March 27, is free and open to the public.
“In Passing” explores how one perceives surroundings and re-contextualizes them into a hyper-real landscape/city with motion. The sense of motion blurs the line between an immediate understanding and a gradual awareness of what is happening within the scene.
Takashima is an artist and educator whose unique and fascinating photography has earned her a following around the world. Her work has been exhibited worldwide in: Boston; New York; Washington, DC; Northern Virginia; Osaka, Japan; Hitachi, Japan; and Seoul, Korea. She currently lives and teaches photography in Northern Virginia.
The Lycoming College Art Gallery features regional and national exhibitions in addition to the annual Art Faculty Show and Senior Show. The next exhibit, the Senior Show, will open with a reception and gallery talk on Friday, April 10 from 6–8 p.m. This event is also free and open to the public.
