Riverside Art Museum is pleased to present four exhibits opening simultaneously on March 22, 2007.

One woman exhibits by Sumi Foley, Moira Hahn, Laurie Hogin and Yuriko Yamaguchi are featured at RAM this spring. The common thread is the intersection of Eastern and Western aesthetic perspectives. Using discarded kimonos and other fine fabrics, Sumi Foley employs the crafts of quilting and embroidery to create personal narratives. Moira Hahn’s vibrant artworks are fusions of Eastern styles of visual expression and the depictions of familiar yet animated cat and bird warriors of the Western world. The artwork by Laurie Hogin may also be seen as hybrid. Hogin’s panels are symbolic depictions of vibrant simian subjects that seem haunted by a post apocalyptic memory of environmental order. Yuriko Yamaguchi’s installations are suspended elements that float within webs and templates. The Metamorphosis Series was a reaction to the end of the Cold War and demolition of the Berlin Wall.
