From the Depths of the Salt Sea | Paintings and Drawings by Anne Davey

From November 10, 2016 through September 15, 2017, immerse yourself in a visual exploration of the historical and imaginative idea of the Nereids. These daughters of Nereus are the divine inhabitants of the sea, as described in Iliad 18.35-69, who 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. Read more about the exhibit.

Visiting hours are Monday–Friday, 10am–12pm and 2pm–4pm.
