Greenlease Gallery Presents Darkness with Blue Sky

Rockhurst University's Greenlease Gallery of Contemporary Art welcomes French-born artist Myriam Mechita for "Darkness with Blue Sky," its first exhibition of 2018.

The exhibition will open with an artist talk at 6:30 p.m. and a reception from 7 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 2, in the gallery, located between Van Ackeren and Sedgwick halls, and will be on view through April 7 during regular gallery hours, from noon to 5 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Born in Strasbourg, France, and a graduate of les Arts Decoratifs de Strasbourg, Mechita's drawings, paintings and sculptures have appeared in galleries across dozens of cities, including Los Angeles, London, Paris and Berlin. Most recently, Mechita's work was featured in the GNYP Gallery in Berlin as part of the "Body of Pain, Body of Love, Body of Wisdom" exhibition. Currently, Mechita divides her working hours between Berlin and Paris, while also lectuing at the Caen Art School in Normandy.
