October Art Show – “Crowds and Clusters” – October 1-29 1 (2)

Artist Miranda Updike will display her oil paintings in the Conrad Lecture Hall this month. The series of paintings presented is on the subject of crowds. Many crowd paintings are viewed from an aerial perspective. There is loveliness to the accidental placement of people in the streets seen, say, from the 14th floor of a building. Miranda has also been working on mixed media of works resembling seascapes of elliptical shapes. All are invited to view Miranda’s unique and beautiful show.
