WILLIAMSTOWN -- Williams College student Robin Gimm ‘14 will host an art opening for her summer project, two series of artwork titled "Aesthetic Edibles" and "Polluted Paintings." This event, free and open to the public, will take place at 4 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 13, in the atrium of the ‘62 Center for Theatre & Dance on the Williams College campus. Cricket Creek Farm grilled cheese sandwiches will be served.
Gimm was the artist-in-residence at the Zilkha Center for Environmental Initiatives this summer. She presents botanical line drawings and acrylic paintings in an effort to give visual form to abstracted ideas of sustainability. In "Aesthetic Edibles," Gimm highlights the inherent beauty of plants in detailed ink drawings of common garden varieties. In "Polluted Paintings," she addresses a variety of environmental and sustainability concerns, including climate change, food, water pollution and biodiversity.
