Paintings and Drawings by Anne Davey

Opening Reception
Thursday, November 10

You're invited to celebrate the opening of a new exhibition!

Beginning November 10, the Center for Hellenic Studies will showcase a series of paintings and drawings by artist Anne Davey. This exhibit imagines encounters with the Nereids, the daughters of Nereus, who were divine inhabitants of the sea as described in Iliad 18.35-69. These Nereids appear as anthropomorphic figures seemingly at home in the water but obscured for the viewer above the surface by the distorting reflections and refractions of their natural medium.

Learn more about the exhibition on the CHS website.
