New and Seasoned Artists Featured at Hopkins Center for the Arts
Art lovers who make their way to the Hopkins Center for the Arts over the next week will have a chance to see multiple exhibits from seasoned and up-and-coming artists.
“Sanjukta [Mitra] and James [Larson] both reference and gain influence and inspiration from Greek and Roman sculpture, and so you can see that in the paintings and the 3D works,” said Jim Clark, the visual arts manager at the Hopkins Center for the Arts. “There’s elements of the fantastical, and they both approach their art-making from a very intuitive standpoint.”
Clark is referring to an exhibit called “Spirit of Myth,” which showcases the work of two artists: Sanjukta Mitra and James Larson.
The paintings of Sanjukta Mitra are rich in color, while the sculptures of James Larson — who died in 2022 — are predominantly monochromatic, which creates quite the contrast.
Meanwhile, both floors of the lobby galleries are devoted to “Reveal,” which is the annual exhibition of work done by students and instructors of Hopkins Community Education’s adult art classes.
This exhibit features 90 pieces of art.
“This is the most we’ve ever had,” Clark said. “There’s ceramics, there’s oil painting, there’s water-color, there’s drawings, there’s just a wonderful variety of different works and the subject matter is all over the place.”
These exhibits are on display through Sunday, Jan. 6, and admission is free.
