Stamps Professor Sherri Smith’s work is featured in Beyond the Skies, a new exhibition on display at the Art & Environment Gallery from March 21 - May 30.
Sherri’s current work is based on images from astronomy, both old and very new. She sees her work as somewhat parallel to that of 19th century American artists who went west and painted the new frontier. Space is our new frontier. She finds it interesting to use one of the oldest technologies to show the latest in knowledge. With NASA missions sending back new and even more exciting visual material, Sherri feels that she’s unlikely to run out of inspiration for this series.
