    • Art Show/Reception: Artist/Sculpture, John Nicholas Hutchings Time: 5:00p - 7:00p Location: Williams Art Gallery Details:

      Nick Hutchings, an Assistant Professor in the Visual and Performing Arts, presents an exhibition of sculpture and drawings that reflects on the concept of the firmament as written in the chapter of Genesis. The raqiya or firmament, also known as the second heaven to in Jewish mysticism, translates as "to beat or spread out.” This expanse, according to Genesis, is where stars of the heaven have been placed. Metaphorically, the firmament is the empirical limit of our universe.  This exhibition explores the idea that the boundaries of our perception and the context of the experience, aesthetic or otherwise, are what frame our understanding of the universe and our place within it.
