"The Color and Rhythm of Breath"

The Uumbaji Art Gallery located at Kent State University Oscar Ritchie Hall, is pleased to present “The Color and Rhythm of Breath” by Theresa Antonellis. The exhibit will show from October 12 to November 6, 2015. A closing reception will be held on Thursday, November 5, 2015 at 4:30 pm. Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The exhibit is free and open to the public. 

Theresa Antonellis holds a MFA from the University of Massachusetts, and a BA degree from Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. Her artwork has been exhibited at universities and colleges in New England and New York.The works in this exhibit are the result of Ms. Antonellis residency at the Vermont Studio Center during 2014-15. Ms. Antonellis’ drawing and painting practice of breath-generating marks using body centered meditations, culminates in organic abstractions that mark the time experienced in meditation and locate the space between the body and the mind, between the natural and the fabricated.A breathing and yoga demonstration will be presented by Larry Terkel, a yoga teacher and KSU faculty during the Closing Reception on November 5th.

The gallery is committed to exhibiting works that speaks to a wide audience, thereby exposing our students, faculty, staff and the community to global issues that are of interest to us all. Our venue breaks barriers and encourages new dialogues.
